A new digital X-ray flat panel detector (FPD) includes application-optimized improvements to allow low-dose imaging at fast scanning speeds.

The Detection Technology (Espoo, Finland) X-Panel 2222s is a complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) X-ray FPD series that includes application-optimized variants for mobile and mini C-arm systems. The small form factor takes up less space in operating rooms, and provides a large field of view (FOV) that is unaffected by geometrical distortions. In addition, the X-Panel 2222s comes with a mechanical outline that suits most existing system designs, and with a complete developer aid kit for speeding up system designs.

Features include a high-resolution zoom mode with native 100 μm pixel pitch, ultra-low noise with close to one analog-to-digital unit (ADU) temporal dark noise at 14 bits, and a large active area of 222X216 mm. The fast sensor provides up to 60 full frames per second through a five GigE interface, and true 16-bit analog-to-digital conversion augments image grayscales. And while inherently ultra-stable, even in longer scans, stability is further enhanced by in-built features that virtually cancel the drift.

“We have designed the X-Panel 2222s to be a new trendsetter for dynamic, ultra-low dose imaging in its target markets,” said Jyri Tolonen, product manager in the medical business unit at Detection Technology. “The X-Panel 2222s comes with a mechanical outline that suits existing X-ray system designs, and strong worldwide service. We can guarantee improved imaging performance, yet system integration is straightforward for faster time-to-market and notable total cost savings.”

Mobile C-arm X-ray systems are used for a variety of diagnostic imaging and minimally invasive surgical procedures. Examples include visualizing kidney drainage, abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm repair, percutaneous valve replacements, cardiac and vascular surgery, gastroenterology, orthopedics, and pain management and neurology procedures.
