PerkinElmer Announces New X-Ray Detectors for Easy Transition from Film to Digital in Radiography
PerkinElmer, a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, introduced today the XRpad™ 4336 wireless cassette detector component for easy upgrade from film to digital, leading to better image quality and lower costs.
With over 20,000 detectors deployed as components of x-ray systems for medical, veterinary and industrial settings, PerkinElmer is a leader in innovative digital detector technology. The XRpad™ 4336 cassette detector is a wireless, lightweight cassette-sized flat panel detector component suitable for the full range of digital radiography (DR) applications. It fits into a conventional table or wall-stand bucky, just like a film-screen cassette, for DR upgrades/retrofits, as well as new systems. It also provides exceptional image quality with a 15 million pixel image matrix, automatic exposure detection (AED), a best-in-class 100μm pixel pitch, and a directly deposited CsI scintillator for outstanding environmental protection and a sharper image.
“The XRpad™ 4336 detector addresses the primary concerns facing medical imaging today, enabling lower radiation dose and providing excellent image quality while reducing costs by making the transition from film to digital virtually seamless,” said Brian Giambattista, President, PerkinElmer Medical Imaging. “As we continue to develop our medical imaging portfolio, these enhancements are a testament to our commitment to improving both a-Si and CMOS X-ray imaging technology.”
At the 2013 annual meeting for the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) PerkinElmer will highlight an impressive portfolio of a-Si and CMOS flat panel detectors for digital radiology.
