  • 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.
