In November, 2018, the company added new digital radiography detectors to its portfolio.

The 17” x 17” CALNEO Dual is a standard cassette-sized detector that can produce traditional, soft tissue-only and bone-only images with one single exposure. These different types can be used to visualize or track lung cancer nodules.

“Traditionally, dual energy’s attraction is usually only available as a built-in detector. You buy an X-ray room and it’s usually the high-end X-ray room," Robert Fabrizio, director of strategic marketing for digital X-ray and women’s health, told HCB News at the time. "This is a portable detector that can be retrofitted into any system. In addition, traditional energy’s attraction has two exposures so it does two-exposure rapidly. But in those two exposures, you have motion like the heart beat and lung breathing. With this being one exposure, there’s less chance for motion. It basically eliminates motion artifacts.”

The FDR ES detector is a next-generation X-ray room retrofit solution equipped with Fujifilm’s high-sensitivity detector technologies, as well as the latest refinements in image processing. A light and portable solution, the detectors are designed with simplified integration, providing a more affordable DR retrofit while still maintaining dose, workflow and image quality performance.

“It’s a more cost-effective detector designed for retrofitting rooms, whereas premium detectors are built with high durability, water-proofness and extra capabilities that you really need for mobile imaging but not necessarily in a room," said Fabrizio. "So with the ES detector, you’re not sacrificing all the image quality and detector efficiencies that we normally provide in the high-end detector. You’re able to retrofit a room at a more economical cost.”
