Launch of new detectors offers affordable solution for private practices
November 21, 2014 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. announced a new line of affordable and versatile digital X-ray detectors, the FDR D-EVO P-Series panels. In an effort to provide private practices a cost-effective path to DR, Fujifilm designed the FDR D-EVO P-Series X-ray detectors to help meet business needs of healthcare professionals while providing a high-quality, affordable solution.
“The FDR D-EVO P-Series detectors offer an excellent return on investment,” said Eddie Massetti, manager, distributor & OEM Sales at Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. “The new detectors combine Fujifilm’s innovative dose efficiency benefits and image quality while controlling costs. It’s the perfect solution to transition your X-ray room to DR, allowing you to perform table and free-cassette-based exams with new ease and discernible image quality enhancements.”
The new FDR D-EVO P-Series panels feature engineering innovations, which achieve dose efficiency improvements averaging 30 percent compared to Fujifilm CR. Completely portable, the FDR D-EVO P-Series panels are light and can quickly turn an X-ray room into a DR room with incredible versatility. There is also no need to re-work existing equipment because FDR D-EVO P-Series panels fit existing standard buckys and holders.
The FDR D-EVO P-Series panels are offered in various sizes, including:
- FDR D-EVO P35i and P35s – 14”x17”: These lightweight, cassette-sized 14”x17” detectors are available with a detachable cord (s models), so there are no batteries to change or charge; also available with the added flexibility of wireless (i models).
- FDR D-EVO P43s – 17”x17”: The 17”x17” capture field provides full coverage for both routine and difficult-to-position exams. The 17”x17” full-field size means the detector never needs to be rotated between portrait and landscape, helping eliminate the need for repeat exams and additional exposures due to cut-off.
- FDR D-EVO P24ic – 24x30cm: The latest from Fujifilm in dose reduction combines focused Cesium Iodide crystals with ISS technology to create low dose images for pediatrics. This 24x30cm (9.5”x 11.8”) detector is just the right size for small anatomy exams such as extremities, shoulders, c-spines, and more. Its light weight makes it especially easier for patients to hold during sunrise knee exams than larger or heavier DR detectors.
FDR D-EVO P-Series panels feature Fujifilm’s exclusive, patented Irradiated Side Sampling technology, which provides ultra-sharp imaging with extra low dose capability. This exclusive design captures the X-ray image from the incident/patient side of the detector, in contrast to traditional designs which capture the image below the scintillator layer, thus reducing the distance for light data to spread and blur, capturing the image where it’s stronger and sharper as it was intended.
FDR D-EVO P-Series panels feature SmartSwitch technology, which works independently of the X-ray system to automatically sense exposures and capture images. This simplifies equipment compatibility and facilitates sharing detectors between multiple rooms.
