Computed Radiography

From the inventor and world's leading manufacturer of digital X-ray systems

We pioneered the world's first digital X-ray system in 1983. Ever since, Fuji Computed Radiography (FCR) has stayed the leader, offering the broadest product range to suit virtually every imaging application.

Recording media for digital diagnostic imaging

Computed radiography uses an imaging plate (IP) instead of film to record X-ray images. The IP contains photostimulable phosphors that store X-ray energy. Scanning the IP releases the energy, producing electronic signals, which are converted to digital values. Barium fluorohalide (BaFX) phosphors in a high-density layer deliver the sensitivity, sharpness and low noise demanded in computed radiographic diagnosis. An IP is inserted in a cassette for X-ray exposure.
