STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce the commercial availability of the FDR D-EVO™ Wireless 17x17 inch flat panel detector (FPD). This addition to the FDR D-EVO line up makes Fujifilm the first and only medical imaging vendor to provide a 17 x 17 inch wireless, flat panel detector.
"Fujifilm's commitment to providing imaging solutions for nearly any general radiology exam is proven by this exciting extension to the FDR D-EVO™ detector family," says David Hotchkiss, Director of Product Marketing, Modality Solutions for Fujifilm. "The 17x17 inch detector format accommodates wider field exams essential for the ever growing demand of today's larger patient population. And since it is wireless, its flexibility is ideal for patients on stretchers and in wheelchairs as well as non-grid examinations."
This latest addition to the FDR D-EVO™ line improves technologist workflow by reducing the amount of time needed for the technologist to reposition and rotate the detector during chest or abdominal imaging. The 17x17 inch detector size is particularly useful in portable examinations where additional field of view can be beneficial during difficult positioning.
Adding to the product's versatility is Fujifilm's newest image processing software "Dynamic Visualization", which is featured in the system's FDX Console workstation. The new imaging software offers enhanced image quality throughout the entire exposed area allowing physicians to visualize detail more efficiently. The FDX Console also employs unique new features such as an auto-trimming feature, which allows for off center images of smaller anatomy to be sent to PACS at full size for optimal viewing.
FDR D-EVO™ Family Legacy:
Like the smaller, 14x17 inch FDR D-EVO™ Wireless, the new 17x17 inch flat panel detector offers dose efficiency improvements using Fujifilm's patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS). ISS is an innovative technology that helps improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) and enables technologists to take high quality images at lower doses. This design reduces scatter and blur of x-rays captured; resulting in sharper images with greater detail to enhance diagnostic confidence for the radiologist.
Additionally, the FDR D-EVO™ Wireless 17x17 inch FPD also offers a lasting power supply that will reduce downtime and increase throughput. The system offers a lightweight removable lithium ion battery that provides up to three hours or 200 exposures of use per charge. A multi-charger system offers fast charge times and two spare batteries are also included with the detector so there's always a charged battery waiting and ready. An optional detachable cord can be used to provide the option for continuous charging and the ability to leave the detector in the bucky for uninterrupted extended use.
