CHICAGO, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA, Inc. is pleased to unveil the FDR D-EVO*, its revolutionary flat panel DR cassette, at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting. Ideal for any clinical environment, FDR D-EVO uses an innovative new technology to provide clinicians with Fujifilm's trademark image quality and outstanding flexibility.
D-EVO is a smart way for users to transition to DR without modification to the exam room. The lightest weight DR cassette of its size available today, the flat panel DR cassette provides portability to address lateral or other cassette-based exams as needed, even in existing DR rooms. Another distinct advantage over competitive solutions includes a detachable power supply which eliminates the potential hazards of a tethered cord or concerns about battery life.
The FDR D-EVO represents the latest addition to Fujifilm's impressive line-up of groundbreaking DR products. Featuring secure network connectivity, D-EVO transmits images to the technologist workstation in only 5 seconds and features 9 second cycle times. FDR D-EVO uses Fujifilm's patented ISS (Irradiation Side Sampling) to improve DQE (detective quantum efficiency) for outstanding image quality. This patented technology reduces the distance for light signals reaching the sensor, mitigating diffusion and attenuation for enhanced image sharpness and reduced noise. The result is FDR images with consistent high quality images and increased diagnostic confidence.
"FDR D-EVO is a testament to Fujifilm's dedication to intelligent product evolution. Fujifilm developed a portable DR cassette-based solution that offers outstanding flexibility, speed and value without compromising image quality," says Penny Maier, Fujifilm's Director of Marketing, Imaging Systems. "The FDR D-EVO also offers clear advantages to technologists like with its lower weight for easier positioning and comfort, along with quick cycle times to minimize waiting."
The product is anticipated to be available in the second quarter 2010. FDR D-EVO requires FDA clearance and is not yet available for sale in the US.
