FUJIFILM's FDR D-EVO™ Wireless Now Available in the U.S.
STAMFORD, Conn., May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce the FDA 510(k) clearance and commercial availability of the FDR D-EVO™ Wireless. This new wireless version of the company's flat panel detector will deliver Fujifilm's renowned image quality in a lightweight design for enhanced versatility and greater ease of positioning in a wider variety of imaging applications. The FDR D-EVO Wireless will be featured along with Fujifilm's complete product line-up -- including the Synapse® portfolio -- at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2011 Annual Meeting June 2nd - 5th in Washington, DC.
"As we expand our DR product line, Fujifilm is focused on delivering solutions that meet the needs of the entire radiology department," says David Hotchkiss, Director of Product Marketing, Modality Solutions for Fujifilm. "The FDR D-EVO Wireless offers technologists increased versatility and improved workflow during an exam while providing radiologists with the same exceptional image quality that they have grown to expect from Fujifilm."
Like its corded predecessor the FDR D-EVO, the FDR D-EVO Wireless offers Fujifilm's exceptional image quality while also enabling facilities to achieve significant dose efficiency improvements. The flat panel detector uses Fujifilm's patented Irradiation Side Sampling (ISS), an innovative technology that improves detective quantum efficiency (DQE) and enables technologists to take high quality images at lower doses. This design reduces scatter and blur of x-rays captured, resulting in sharper images with greater detail that enhances diagnostic confidence for the radiologist. The wireless detector is the ideal solution for exams where low dose is required to produce the fine details for images of delicate areas, such as orthopaedic exams of the wrist, hand or leg.
In addition to providing flexibility during an exam with its light weight and no cord to interfere, the FDR D-EVO Wireless also offers a lasting power supply that will reduce downtime and increase throughput. The system offers a lightweight removable lithium ion battery that provides fast charge times and up to three hours or 400 exposures of use per charge. A multi-charger system with two spare batteries is also included with the detector which reduces concerns for power loss. Additionally, a detachable cord provides the option for continuous charging and the ability to leave the detector in the bucky for uninterrupted extended use.
