Canon Medical Systems Corporation (Otawara, Japan) has launched an all-new size for its Hi-Def flat panel detector that offers the highest resolution on interventional X-ray systems in the market.
Available on the Alphenix Sky +, 4D CT with Sky +, Biplane, and Core+ systems, the 12”×16” Hi-Def flat panel detector provides more than twice the spatial resolution1 of conventional flat panel detectors, helping clinicians see fine details in complex interventional procedures. The new 12”×16” detector joins the existing 12”×12” Hi-Def detector to provide clinicians with the ideal size for their unique procedural needs.
Made up of the world’s first true high-definition detector – with 76 micron resolution – for resolving fine details, the unique hybrid 12″x16″ panel is combined with high-definition flat panel technology that results in resolutions of 2.6 lp/mm (Standard) and 6.6 lp/mm (Hi-Def detector). Evolving minimally invasive treatments for vascular diseases such as stroke, embolization and aneurysms, places increasing demands for high definition real time imaging to aid the interventionist in catheter position and deployment of devices such as balloons, coils, stents, or flow diverters, the Hi-Def detector provides higher spatial resolution modes with sharper and visually improved images, compared with those of traditional FPD images. The larger 12”x16” Hi-Def detector can help improve visualization during peripheral and abdominal procedures in Interventional Radiology (IR), Oncology (IO), Neurology (IN), and Cardiology (IC).
“We’re taking outcomes driven innovation in interventional imaging one step further than ever thought possible with the availability of Hi-Def on all of our Cardiac and Vascular systems. Having Hi-Def provides improved image quality and interventional imaging efficiency at a lower dose for all clinical specialties (IR/IO, IN, and IC), which will be very important for clinicians and for patients,” said Bill Newsom, managing director, Vascular Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “With the highest level of resolution available in the market, and now in an additional size of 12”x16”, our customers have the ability to perform minimally invasive procedures with fine detail images, enabling them to prioritize clinical decisions and patient outcomes.”
