Forward-thinking design eliminates traditional glass substrate from the capture layer, the most fragile layer inside.
Fujifilm Healthcare have announced the introduction of the new FDR D-EVO III DR detector. Recently 510k cleared by the FDA, the FDR D-EVO III is Fujifilm’s third generation digital X-ray detector and features a sleek, thin design and enjoys the status of being the world’s first glass-free DR detector with patented Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS)1 – also making it the world’s lightest 14×17 detector weighing approximately 1.9 Kg. The innovative design removes the traditional glass substrate from the capture layer, eliminating the most fragile layer inside, allowing for a much lighter weight compared to previous models. The FDR D-EVO III will initially be available in 14×17” and 17×17” sizes to fit a wide range of diagnostic needs.
“As imaging departments navigate their future, the need to advance technology while containing costs will continue to be a focus,” said Robert Fabrizio, Director of Strategic Marketing, Modality Solutions, FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. “Fujifilm is focused on the future – with the new FDR D-EVO III detector, imaging departments will be able to invest in a smart solution, providing cutting edge technology to their patients and which is built to last well into the future.”
The next generation 14×17” detector incorporates all of the groundbreaking features of the earlier model in the range, the FDR D-EVO II including its sleek design with smooth and tapered edges for easier positioning, antibacterial nano-coating to help fight against HAIs and a long-lasting battery life.
