ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the 40th Annual AHRA Meeting and Exposition, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. (www.Fujimed.com) announced the commercial availability of the FDR D-EVO™ 24x30cm Cesium Iodide flat panel detector, the latest addition to one of the most diverse family of DR products available today. The first and only 24x30 Cesium wireless flat panel detector on the US market will provide Fujifilm' s ease-of-use, image quality and dose efficiency in a light weight, very compact design to accommodate neonatal, pediatric and orthopedic imaging.
The 24x30cm, wireless FDR D-EVO™ flat panel detector combines the exceptional dose efficiency benefits of Fujifilm's Patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS) technology with image performance of Cesium Iodide. The innovative ISS technology is designed to improve detective quantum efficiency (DQE) by reducing the distance for light signals to reach the sensing electronics. By reducing scatter and blur, it produces ultra-sharp detail even at very low X-ray exposure. As a result, the FDR D-EVO™ 24 x30cm Cesium detector achieves as much as 20% higher DQE performance compared to conventional detectors, enabling potential for lower patient dose and enhancing diagnostic confidence for the radiologist.
In addition to diagnostic benefits, the new detector provides the same ease-of-use as the entire FDR D-EVO™ lineup, providing extended versatility and renewed ease of positioning for a the most common types of exams. "The size of the new 24x30 FDR D-EVO™ detector offers the versatility and maneuverability that every technologist has been hoping for. It's the perfect addition for busy imaging departments where exams requiring a small field of view, like neonatal incubator trays, extremity and skull exams take place daily," says Rob Fabrizio, Fujifilm's Senior Marketing and Product Development Manager, Digital Radiography Systems. "And its small size and lightweight make it an 'absolute must' for exams like sunrise views giving you peace of mind as the patient to holds the detector in position."
