SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- South Hall, Booth 4804 -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) will exhibit the company's new PaxScan® wireless digital detector, digital image processing systems and X-ray tubes at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago from Nov 25 – 29. In addition the company will display its technologies for treating cancer with targeted radiotherapy and radiosurgery.
X-Ray Products - New digital X-ray imaging products to be showcased are:
PaxScan® 4336W – Wireless Flat Panel Detector - The new PaxScan 4336W wireless detector features Varian's proprietary, advanced wireless technology with state-of-the art 6 th generation architecture incorporating 16-bit data acquisition. The panel is optimized for dose efficiency and very low electronic noise. The new wireless platform is a dual band 2.4/5GHz panel with high speed data transfer rates up to 170Mbps and a 2 – 3.3 second preview time. It also has on-panel diagnostics and a built-in shock sensor. The panel is a lightweight 3.4kg with battery, and has a removable tether/service cable. "These new innovative technologies allow our customers to take full advantage of superior digital image quality with the capability of higher throughput, significant workflow efficiencies and the potential to enhance patient care and comfort for an improved experience," said Steve Kimmel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Varian X-Ray Products.
PaxScan® 4343CB – Incorporating the advanced PaxScan technology, the 4343CB is designed to deliver the highest quality radiography combined with state-of-the-art dynamic imaging. The 4343CB is capable of generating 60 frames per second enabling dual energy imaging and tomosynthesis in radiography. "The 4343CB detector is an excellent choice for Universal RF and large volume Cone Beam CT (CBCT) applications," added Kimmel. The large field of view features multiple sensitivity ranges, extended dynamic range modes and a 139 micron pixel size for high resolution imaging.PaxScan® 1515DX – The mid-size CBCT and panoramic imaging panel is intended for use in mini C-arm applications and is also well suited for dental and industrial applications. PaxScan® 2530C – A 10" x 12" radiographic panel designed with special imaging modes for use in mid-size radiographic applications. InfiMed Imaging Software Systems – Varian's digital image processing software and workstations with advanced imaging algorithms for single or multiple radiographic flat panel detectors, dynamic detectors and legacy image intensifier systems. Cone Beam CT Software Tools (CST) – A suite of image reconstruction software tools for use by system designers. The software offers a set of plug-ins for preprocessing corrections, CBCT reconstruction and post reconstruction processing. The software is designed to reduce scatter and lag and corrects for the effects of beam hardening. The suite enables OEM engineers to use standard CST plug-ins or add their own custom processing plug-ins.
