SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ECR Booth #313/Expo C -- Varian Medical Systems, Inc.  (NYSE: VAR), will exhibit X-ray tubes and PaxScan® digital image detectors for fluoroscopy, angiography, cardiology and cone-beam CT imaging at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) annual meeting in Vienna, Austria, from March 1- 5, 2012.   

"This year our exhibit reflects our dedication to continuous product improvement," said Stephen Kimmel, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Varian X-Ray Products.  "We've responded to the industry's need for advanced digital imaging solutions with revolutionary new designs of PaxPower™ X-ray tubes and a new generation of our PaxScan® line of image detectors designed to improve image quality and increase patient throughput."

The products to be highlighted at ECR are:

  • PaxScan® 1515DX – a mid-size CBCT and panoramic imaging panel using Varian's new DX technology, a proprietary, state of the art 6th generation architecture, featuring increased frame rates, improved low dose imaging and 16-bit data acquisition.  The panel is suitable for use in mini C-arm applications and is also well suited for dental and industrial applications.   
  • PaxScan® 4336X – a cassette sized flat panel detector designed with low noise electronics, 2.8 second acquisition time, internal shock event recorder and weighing only 3.1kg. The detector has 16-bit data acquisition and is available with or without handles.  
  • PaxScan® 4343CB  - a flat panel detector developed for applications in R&F, surgical, ENT, oncology and orthopedics.  The large field of view panel features multiple sensitivity ranges, extended dynamic range modes and a 139 µm pixel size for high quality radiography. 
  • PaxPower™ FP 2250 - an X-ray tube optimized for high throughput interventional procedures on systems including portable surgical CT.  The compact tube platforms were designed with higher heat dissipation which allows for higher patient throughput.
  • PaxPower™ M-1500 - Varian's first X-ray tube developed specifically for advanced mammography applications such as tomosynthesis and CT.  The M-1500 provides exceptional performance in a space efficient design allowing high quality imaging in the chest wall region.
