Adding more variety to Fujifilm's DR cassettes
This square shaped cassette, which does not require holizontal / vertical switching, greatly streamlines the examination workflow.
The novel type CsI:TI FPD, combining an adhesively coupled structure with ISS method, exhibits significant improvement in image quality than conventional CsI:TI FPDs and provides a way to reduce X-ray exposure to the patient.
This square shaped cassette does not need to be switched horizontally or vertically when incorporated in an upright / table X-ray system. It frees users from bothersome procedures during an examination, realizing a comfortable workflow.
Since this DR cassette is designed as thin as a regular CR cassette fitting the existing stand / table, it enables the DR systems to be introduced at reduced cost.
Fujifilm developed a new technology “SmartSwitch” which allows automatic X-ray detection. With “SmartSwitch,” FDR D-EVO no longer requires connection between the X-ray generator and DR power supply unit to automatically detect X-rays and start image creation.
In X-ray Auto Detection Mode, DR cassettes detect X-rays at the time of exposure and automatically enter the image detection mode and then the image construction mode.
It just takes one second to display the preview image after an exposure and the inter-exposure time in a minimum of 8 seconds. Quick re-exposure is also possible, with no need to have patients wait. High throughput is realized, reducing the examination time significantly.
X-ray field recognition for an image and image trimming to an appropriate size are performed automatically. With easier editing procedures, images in sizes most suitable for diagnosis are provided.
Easy and rapid switching between modes is available as required, dependent on examination type. The mode is automatically switched in only 1 sec. by detaching or attaching the cable.
Wireless mode enables free positioning with easy handling. When used as a wireless portable type, table-top exposures are easily performed, allowing exposure situations to be expanded.
With the cable attached, the battery in the cassette can be charged. X-ray procedures run smoothly without any worry about the state of the battery.
By charging the extra battery pack with the designated charger, the battery can be quickly replaced whenever needed, allowing the X-ray procedures to be performed without interruption. The battery lasts about 3.5 hours. The charger is common in the FDR D-EVO series.
With the SE cable attached, the battery used in the cassette can be charged. Even if the battery level becomes low in the wireless mode, X-ray procedures can be carried out without interruption by attaching the cable. The SE cable is common in the FDR D-EVO series.
In addition to the familiar basic operation, new gradation design monitor and the intuitive arrangement of operation buttons make it possible to check and confirm information quickly and accurately. The image display area on the display monitor is larger, and enables easy checking of diagnostic images. An optional touch panel monitor ensures quick and accurate operation.
Constantly endeavoring to provide the highest image quality, Fujifilm offers a proprietary technology to produce the optimal image for each examination. With the enhanced visibility achieved by this technology, information in greater detail can be obtained from images.
This new approach is designed to take full advantage of DR's dynamic range capabilities. Fujifilm has created a new full spectrum optimization with dynamic-range control processing. This processing fully utilizes all of the exposure data captured and optimizes its image recognition output. Enhancing visualization of the entire image within the exposure field, even significantly clarifying overexposed and underexposed areas. The effect can be adapted to CR images as well. Allowing clearer detail images regardless of a type of detector.
This new processing is designed to maintain the highest contrast possible for the region of interest achieving even wider latitudes than traditional processing, by combining with a new and more enhanced gradation display look up table (LUT) which intelligently optimizes the monitor's display characteristics. This innovative image display optimization has been built to enhance diagnostic viewing with just about any display on the market. Providing easy-to-interpret and rich gradation.
Compared to film, display monitors have narrower dynamic range and sharpness. Through an in-depth analysis of conventional image processing parameters, we developed a brand new set of automated menu parameters specifically designed to improve sharpness, contrast, and latitude for every anatomic menu. These new parameters enable the best possible first up display for every exam.
