Fujifilm Medical Systems USA, a provider of diagnostic imaging products and medical informatics solutions, highlighted its new digital radiography solutions designed to meet the needs of radiology professionals at the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) annual meeting held July 19–22 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
According to Fujifilm, its new FDR D-Evo II detectors feature advances in design and functionality to bring improved levels of performance to radiographic imaging. The detectors are lightweight with a ruggedized magnesium alloy case and streamlined shape that is intended to simplify positioning under patients. Inside, its electronics have been reengineered to enhance dose efficiency and improve diagnostic image quality at ultra-low dose levels. D-Evo II is said to be the first detector protected with an engineered antibacterial coating.
At the AHRA meeting, Fujifilm also introduced a new image processing tool called Virtual Grid that adapts contrast to improve image quality for exams acquired without a grid. With the ability to customize its emulated grid characteristics, Virtual Grid is intended to provide exam flexibility and eliminate image quality problems that result from improper grid alignment or focal distance, which are common with mobile imaging. The Virtual Grid is designed for use with Fujifilm DR detectors and the FDX Console workstation and is suitable for mobile imaging applications in emergency rooms, operating rooms, and critical care.
