Fujifilm unveils additional DR Mobile Imaging Options at ECR 2012
Fujifilm is a pioneer in diagnostic imaging and information systems for healthcare, with a range of constantly evolving, clinically proven, products and technologies designed to assist medical professionals perform efficiently and effectively. The company are pleased to have presented their enhanced mobile imaging range at ECR 2012, held from 1st to 5th March in Vienna, Austria.
Fujifilm’s FCR Go2, FDR Go and FDR Go flex were among the range of Fujifilm products on display at ECR, demonstrating the company’s ability to offer a variety of innovative mobile solutions that are both CR and DR based. These products are designed to bring digital X-ray exams to the patient and meet the varying needs of clinicians and facilities across Europe.
The FDR Go is the company’s new DR portable digital X-ray system and the latest addition to its comprehensive and expanding FDR product line. This next generation portable system will offer the benefits of Fujifilm’s FCR Go2 systems with the enhanced features of DR.
New features of the FDR Go include:
• A new, more compact, size capable of fitting into even smaller areas.
• The ability to employ any FDR D-EVO detector, including 35x43cm, 43x43cm and 24x30cm sizes.
• Image preview in as little as 2 seconds.
• Radiographers can send images wirelessly to the hospital network without leaving the patient’s bedside.
• Several innovative features designed to simplify workflow, including auto menu mapping, tube head inching and convenient spare battery charging.
Rounding out the new mobile options at ECR is Fujifilm’s most flexible DR system to date, the lightweight, compact FDR Go flex. The Flex consists of a wireless FDR D-EVO flat panel detector, a full featured laptop workstation and supporting mini components box. This easily transportable, wireless system offers Radiographers the ability to turn virtually any analogue portable system, analogue X-ray room or remote location in to a DR imaging system instantly. Radiographers can simply drop the box into the cassette drawer and position the notebook on top to begin capturing DR images.
In addition, the FDR Go flex features Fujifilm’s new X-ray detection feature, called “Smart Switch” that simplifies its use in any room by eliminating the need to connect the detector’s processing system to the generator equipment’s exposure circuit. The detector preps itself when the examination is started and automatically senses exposure to capture images.
The new FDR portable system also includes Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS), Fujifilm’s patented advanced detector technology. ISS technology improves DQE and MTF. This unique innovation aims to achieve significant dose efficiency improvements compared to similar DR detectors. It also reduces scatter and blur from within the detector, resulting in sharper images with greater detail that enhances diagnostic confidence for the Radiologist.
