STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(Booth #4165, South Building, Hall A) – FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. will introduce the FDR Visionary Suite*, a next generation Automatic Positioning Digital Radiographic X-ray Room System—at the 101st annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) held November 29 – December 4, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
“Fujifilm is truly making a difference in advancing digital radiography performance,” said Rob Fabrizio, director of marketing and product development, Digital x-ray and Women’s Health, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Every feature of the FDR Visionary Suite is designed to help eliminate repeats, streamline exams and improve patient care by providing consistency and accuracy in equipment positioning, preferred dose optimized techniques and intelligent processing for every exam.”
The new flagship system was designed to optimize imaging workflow while improving diagnostic capabilities. A flexible fully automated positioning digital radiographic room system allows technologists to focus on what matters most--the patient--positioning, safety, and comfort.
The system also features advanced imaging applications including automated Long Length Imaging, Dual Energy Subtraction (DES), and Tomosynthesis. FDR Visionary Suite’s auto positioning system lets the technologist simply select the exam and the system repositions its overhead tube to the preferred table or wall-stand and SID for that exam, it even maps the optimal dose techniques. The end result is a faster, more precise and reproducible exam with less chance of repeats for a better overall patient experience.
All New FDR D-EVO Advance detector
The system will be scalable and configurable with Fujifilm’s existing FDR D-EVO detectors and a new detector called FDR D-EVO Advance denoting its advanced applications acquisition technology. The new CsI detector featuring ISS, is a 17x17” format size, features a built in handle, can be used wirelessly for cross table exams and automatically plugs in for integrated wired connection, charging and high speed image transfer when inserted into the bucky tray of the table or upright.
Advance Applications Extends Imaging beyond Conventional 2D
FDR Visionary Suite’s advanced applications extend its diagnostic capabilities beyond conventional 2D radiographic imaging for challenging views and higher detail imaging. Included below is a summary of each advanced application –
- Automated Long Length Stitching capability captures DR images for whole spine and long leg imaging, acquiring up to 63” view in as little as 9 seconds. This functionality is complimented with Fujifilm’s intelligent image processing which automatically adjusts contrast between images and corrects misalignment from slight patient movements. The end result is fast easy long length images that help minimize patient positioning discomfort and optimized images that help eliminate repeat exams.
- The Tomosynthesis application produces up to 60 image slices in as little as 12 seconds from a single sweep of the x-ray tube to provide a deeper rendering of the anatomy to clarify small and obscured fractures at a fraction of the dose and cost of a CT scan.
- Dual Energy Subtraction acquires two rapid exposures at different energy levels to produce 3 images: traditional, soft tissue and bone only views, to help differentiate foreign objects, soft tissue and calcified structures. Fujifilm uniquely complements this application with sophisticated motion correction to suppress cardiac, lung and other misalignment distortions, along with density and noise compensation which further improve clarity and sharpness.
