Varian Medical Systems to Highlight the Latest Digital Detectors and X-ray Tubes at the MEDICA 2011 International Trade Fair

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Booth - A78/Hall 10 -- Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE: VAR) will exhibit its PaxScan® digital image detectors and new PaxPower™ X-ray tubes at the MEDICA 2011 International Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 16-19, 2011.

The Varian booth will highlight:

  • The PaxPower™ FP 2250SP X-ray tube, a next-generation tube designed for digital radiological imaging systems.  The tube uses Varian's a rotating anode technology for high demand applications and can also be used in real-time imaging from fluoroscopy to cardio vascular applications. The X-ray tube is lightweight, small in size and is capable of 1000 watts continuous heat dissipation. "At half the size and twice the power of conventional dual-ended tubes, PaxPower™ tubes have the potential to drive new equipment designs and capabilities much as flat-panel detectors have done for digital imaging over the last five years," said Steve Kimmel, vice president sales and marketing for Varian's X-Ray Products group.
  • The PaxScan® 4336R, a 43cm x 36cm detector for digital radiography (DR) that is the first DR panel designed in conformance with National Electronic Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards to replace film cassettes used in existing radiographic and multi-bucky applications. "A portable 4336R is also available with a hand-held enclosure for use in mobile imaging systems," added Kimmel.
  • The PaxScan® 4343R, a 43cm x 43cm detector, which is Varian's largest panel designed for permanent mounting in radiographic tables or wall stands.

European Sales & Service Center

Varian Medical Systems has a dedicated, bonded facility at its service center in Willich, Germany where X-ray tubes are available in inventory for rapid shipment. This facility reloads, rebuilds and distributes medical X-ray tubes for immediate delivery throughout Europe. The center also evaluates and repairs tubes. Varian's X-ray Products Group is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.

"With inventory in our Willich facility and our sales and technical team, we are able to provide quality customer service throughout the European Union," said Stefano Daniotti, European regional manager for Varian X-Ray Products.
