ECR 2017: Fujifilm demonstrates FDR D-EVO GL with virtual grid image processing technology


FUJIFILM Europe Medical Systems Division will demonstrate the FDR D-EVO GL detector at the 23rd annual European Congress of Radiology will be held 1-5 March 2017 in Vienna. Designed to capture long length digital images in a single exposure, the FDR D-EVO GL features Fujifilm’s advanced Virtual Grid image processing, which can produce images with contrast and clarity comparable to exams performed with a physical grid while requiring as little as half the dose.

“Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO GL detector with Virtual Grid allows efficient acquisition of long-length exams with a single low dose DR exposure, generating high quality images without a grid with a potential of up to 50% lower dose than grid exams.” said Richard Cahalane, DR Product Manager, FUJIFILM Europe. “The speed of acquisition and dose savings provide benefits for all patients but in particular, paediatric patients and those patients on whom these tests are performed recurrently.”

FDR D-EVO GL features a groundbreaking 17 x 49” field of view for DR long length Imaging; with its wider format helping to reduce anatomy cutoff and therefore dose by fewer repeats. Compared to multiple exposure conventional long length DR imaging, GL’s single exposure improves workflow and simplifies exam time to improve patient experiences.

Virtual Grid image processing is a great complement to the FDR D-EVO GL and can be used for all body parts (except for breast imaging). In mobile imaging Virtual Grid allows a new flexibility to perform high-quality imaging without the limitations of associated grid misalignment artifacts and repeat exposures. It further simplifies positioning by eliminating the handling of heavy grid caps and improves patient comfort. Virtual Grid automatically adapts processing to provide enhanced Image quality with automated and selectable grid characteristics to further optimize to departmental preferences.

The Fujifilm booth at ECR is located at the Austria Center Vienna, Expo X3.
