FDR AcSelerate, a groundbreaking flat panel DR system, which was first shown at the European Congress of Radiology in March this year, is now available throughout Europe. The new, most advanced and sophisticated DR system is suitable to revolutionize the capabilities of flat panel detectors through using amorphous selenium direct image capture technology and thus producing general radiographic images of exceptional quality.
The FDR AcSelerate represents the next generation of Fujifilm´s 28 years of experience in digital x-ray capture technology featuring a direct detector for general radiography applications. By increasing the thickness of the amorphous selenium layer, the FDR AcSelerate detector provides one of the highest conversion efficiencies with a DQE (detective quantum efficiency) and is thus giving clinicians the potential for dose reduction and presenting image quality that is unprecedented among current general radiographic systems.
``We are proud that we can make this most advanced and sophisticated DR system now available to the European market´´ says Tsuneo Sakai, Senior Vice President Medical Systems of FUJIFILM Europe GmbH. ``Fujifilm has created the superior FDR AcSelerate system by revolutionizing an existing technology that takes the capabilities of flat panel detectors to the next level. The first test installations at Medical Universtities are really promising.´´
The x-ray component of the FDR AcSelerate is a fully automated table and upright system with a lightweight ergonomic design that takes much less effort to use, position and operate than traditional systems. With just the touch of a button, technologists at high volume facilities will benefit from the enhanced productivity and flexibility of the FDR AcSelerate. The system performs nearly any general radiology exam using fully automated features, thus avoiding physical stress and repetitive injury to technologists.
