Varian Medical Systems, Lincolnshire, Ill, will exhibit its PaxScan 4336W wireless flat-panel detector at the annual meeting of RSNA in December. The detector features sixth-generation architecture incorporating 16-bit data acquisition. At 43 cm × 36 cm and 3.4 kg with battery, the 4336W transmits image data across a wireless link with transfer rates up to 170 Mbps, for a preview time of as little as 2 seconds.
The ruggedized 4336W design is well suited to mobile cart applications. The 4336W has a dedicated access point (host bridge) using the same interface as the wired 4336X, simplifying the integration challenge of going wireless.
