AT RSNA 2018 FUJIFILM UNVEILS TWO NEW DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY DETECTORS WITH EXCEPTIONAL IMAGE QUALITY AT LOW DOSE

Innovations include single exposure energy subtraction and next-generation X-ray room retrofit detectors

 

STAMFORD, Conn., November 15, 2018 (Booth #2545) – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of diagnostic imaging and medical informatics solutions, today announced that it will add two new digital radiography (DR) detectors —the CALNEO Dual (available only in Japan) and the FDR ES—to its ever expanding portfolio of digital radiography solutions on display at  booth #2545 at McCormick Place in Chicago during the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from November 25-30, 2018. At the event, Fujifilm will also offer a unique glimpse into the future of DR detector technologies with an under the cover, inside view prototype display.

“Once again, Fujifilm is pushing the limits, expanding the capabilities of digital radiography,” said Johann Fernando, Ph.D., Chief Operating Officer of FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Our latest advances with the CALNEO Dual represents a transformation in image capture technologies that will allow clinicians to visualize more detail than before and from a single exposure.”

The CALNEO Dual is Fujifilm’s newest development in DR technology. The 17x17” standard cassette sized detector features two sensitivity capture layers coupled with Fujifilm intelligent energy subtraction processing. A single exposure produces three images; traditional, soft tissue only and bone only views. These distinctly different images can be utilized for visualizing or tracking of lung cancer nodules. The innovative dual capture layer design yields higher definition general X-ray images, enhancing separation accuracy of bone detail and soft tissue.

At RSNA, Fujifilm will also debut its FDR ES detector— this next generation X-ray room retrofit solution is designed with the essential conveniences of Fujifilm DR image acquisition innovations. The light, portable detectors are packed with all the benefits of Fujifilm’s high sensitivity detector technologies and the latest refinements in image processing. Optimized for existing X-ray room equipment, these detectors feature simplified integration for a more affordable DR retrofit without sacrificing dose, workflow and image quality performance.

In addition to these latest and most advanced detectors, Fujifilm will showcase its comprehensive line of DR detectors and mobile DR solutions to suit the needs of imaging facilities large and small.
