FDR Visionary Suite


A flagship X-ray system providing advanced applications for diagnosis.

The content on this page is intended to healthcare professionals and equivalents.

  • Compatibility with a Broad Range of Cassette DR Panels for Maximum Flexibility
  • Wide Array of applications to support diagnostics
  • Stress-free, Optimized Imaging Workflow

Smoothly and Surely Ensuring a Stress-free Imaging Environment


Completion of room preparation without touching the system

The system features an auto-positioning function that moves the X-ray tube into position automatically. It is possible to pre-set and restore positions from the image guidance menu.

X-ray stand

A movable scope makes it possible to take images of the entire lower limb from the cervical vertebrae down. The exposure platform can be adjusted for images of the head and upper limbs.

X-ray table

Using the foot switch and grip switch it is possible to adjust the height quickly and easily.
With the weight capacity on the table exceeding 295kg, the system can be used for bariatric patients without concern.

Patient Guidance and Positioning

Easily define the imaging position for each individual patient

With the auto-tracking function the panel and X-ray tube are automatically kept in alignment, making it possible to focus on patient positioning and care. By switching between automatic and manual functions positioning can be simplified, allowing the operator to maintain full control.

Radiation field linking function

The pre-selected radiation field size for the area to be imaged is automatically set and alignment of the field to the upper or lower potion of the detector is also automatically performed.

Simplified Generator Setting with an LCD touch panel

The touch panel presents image-related information clearly and also allows settings to be easily changed. The angle of the square LCD panel will also change by 90 degrees to match the direction of the X-ray tube, making it easy to see at all times.

Taking Images

Change conditions in the X-ray room using the touch panel

All conditions can be changed using the LCD touch panel on the X-ray tube supporting arm, making it possible to set conditions in the X-ray room alone. The changed conditions are relayed in real time to the controller outside the X-ray room.

“Sound and light” notifies those away from the machine when an X-ray is being taken

“System Ready ” and “X-ray in progress” notifications can be clearly understood by sounds and lights on the frame and hand switch. There is a choice of seven colors for the notification lights.

Wide Range of Applications That Contribute to Improving Diagnostic Capabilities


Freedom to reconstruct and display image slices

With this technology the X-ray tube moves linearly, acquiring a series of images in a single sweep, which are then reconstructed to create cross-sectional image slices.

Automatic X-ray dose control and background reconstruction

Using the imaging conditions for a single preliminary image as reference, the conditions for Tomosynthesis imaging are set automatically.

High-precision, high-quality imaging to 150μm

By controlling such items as metal artifacts, high-precision imaging down to 150μm is possible.

Energy Subtraction

Separates images of soft tissue and bone for improved viewing

This technology takes two X-rays, utilizing the difference in X-ray energy absorption to create specific images of soft tissue and bone, etc. The dose rate is changed automatically between shots.

Controlling motion artifacts

Motion artifacts that may occur between exposures are suppressed by multiple resolution alignment processing, allowing for clear images of soft tissue and bone.

Long View Imaging*1

Display full-length images of spine or lower limb

This technology uses multiple images taken in one sweep and automatically stitches them to create images of wide area of up to 160cm upright and 120cm recumbent. Disjointed images caused by patient body movements can be automatically corrected through image alignment.*1
