Agfa's DR 17e detector

Lighter, sturdier and wireless: What’s new in X-ray detectors

por Lisa Chamoff , Contributing Reporter
From the November 2017 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine

X-ray detectors are continuing to go the way of the smartphone and other consumer electronics. They are getting lighter, easier to handle and more durable, while impressing with high-quality images.

Here are the new detector offerings from several companies.

Agfa
New detectors from Agfa include the DR 14e and DR 17e, which will join last year’s release of the DR 14s. Agfa has introduced this new product line for retrofits “to help our dealer channels and customers that are looking at price and specifications versus the best possible dose efficiency and dose reduction,” says George Curley, senior sales marketing manager for digital imaging at Agfa. "In many cases we can still reduce dose quite a bit. This is where MUSICA steps in.”

The retrofit detectors include 14-inch-by-17-inch and 17-inch-by-17-inch detectors that can be used wirelessly or tethered. There is also a 10-inch-by-12-inch detector that is a work in progress, with a planned release in the first quarter of 2018.

Canon's CXDI-710C detector

Canon
Canon recently previewed three DR detectors at AHRA in Anaheim, Calif., in July.

The lightweight detectors, the CXDI-710C Wireless digital detector and CXDI-810C Wireless digital detector, have many design and functionality changes, including more rounded corners, tapered edges and built-in notches for handling and positioning. They are also IPX7-rated for water resistance.

The detectors are some of the lightest on the market, says Lori Webb, product line adviser for Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon USA.

“Our 14-by-17-inch panel is over 2 pounds lighter than the previous generation,” Webb says.

The detector batteries can either be charged in a Canon battery charger or in the new CXDI docking station, which will cut at least 20 minutes off overall charging time, Webb says.

The detectors also have drop and shock detection and reporting that provides information about the incident to the CXDI Control Software NE workstation. It will also provide that data if the detector is turned off, as long as there is a battery within the detector. The panels also have on-board image storage of up to 99 images used in a stand-alone mode, for emergency downtime situations, or in a PC-less scenario.
