FDA clears Fujifilm wireless flat panel detector
Fujifilm Medical Systems' FDR D-Evo has received FDA 510(k) clearance and is commercially available in the U.S.

The wireless version of the company’s flat panel detector pairs digital image quality with a lightweight to accommodate various imaging applications, according to Stamford, Conn.-based Fujifilm. The FDR D-Evo Wireless uses Fujifilm’s Irradiation Side Sampling technology, and produces details for images of delicate areas, such as orthopedic exams of the wrist, hand or leg.

The FDR D-Evo Wireless features a removable lithium ion battery that provides up to three hours or 400 exposures of use per charge, Fuji stated. A multi-charger system with two spare batteries is included with the detector. Additionally, a detachable cord provides the option for continuous charging and the ability to leave the detector in the bucky for uninterrupted extended use.
