Varian Medical Systems to Highlight the Latest Digital Detectors and X-ray Tubes at the MEDICA 2011 International Trade Fair
November 23, 2011 –Varian Medical Systems will exhibit its PaxScan digital image detectors and new PaxPower X-ray tubes at the MEDICA 2011 International Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 16-19, 2011.
The Varian booth will highlight:
- The PaxPower FP 2250SP X-ray tube, a next-generation tube designed for digital radiological imaging systems. The tube uses Varian's a rotating anode technology for high demand applications and can also be used in real-time imaging from fluoroscopy to cardio vascular applications. The X-ray tube is lightweight, small in size and is capable of 1,000 watts continuous heat dissipation. "At half the size and twice the power of conventional dual-ended tubes, PaxPower tubes have the potential to drive new equipment designs and capabilities much as flat-panel detectors have done for digital imaging over the last five years," said Steve Kimmel, vice president sales and marketing for Varian's X-Ray Products group.
- The PaxScan 4336R, a 43 cm x 36 cm detector for digital radiography (DR) that is the first DR panel designed in conformance with National Electronic Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standards to replace film cassettes used in existing radiographic and multi-bucky applications. "A portable 4336R is also available with a hand-held enclosure for use in mobile imaging systems," added Kimmel.
- The PaxScan 4343R, a 43cm x 43cm detector, which is Varian's largest panel designed for permanent mounting in radiographic tables or wall stands.
