Imaging Dynamics Corp. introduced its new XM Series digital radiography system, the first IDC fixed-table DR system with a single detector. This new system complements the popular X2200 Series dual detector system by providing a more affordable fixed-table option.
IDC also showcased the Xplorer 1600 digital radiology system, a product awarded the 2006 Medical Imaging Product Value of the Year by Frost & Sullivan earlier this year. The single charge-coupled device (CCD) array of the Xplorer 1600 has an image preview area of 17” x 17” – the largest field of view for any CCD-based detector – and is comparable to tiled-array detectors of other flat panel systems that use as many as four panel arrays to span the same area. IDC made substantial upgrades and now offers a wireless remote.
IDC showed its expanded X-Series detector line which is scheduled to launch in 2007.
By leveraging a unique modular detector design, IDC is positioning the X-Series to offer potential buyers a broad selection of scintillator phosphor and CCD recording technologies. Each model can be custom-configured to provide optimized performance and cost for any clinical application. The X-Series detectors will feature microlenses and new lateral overflow drain (LOD), technology. This new CCD imaging technology greatly increases dynamic range and quantum efficiency, while eliminating the potential for pixel saturation. With modular rather than unibody detectors, customers have the freedom to mix and match.
“Value” is the number one reason for IDC’s success, said Rex Harmon, vice president of US sales. “We are addressing and meeting market needs not met by our competitors.”
