Fujifilm Europe launches new hybrid C-arm and portable x-ray device
FDR CROSS is a flexible, hybrid C-arm and portable x-ray machine designed to offer high quality fluoroscopic and static x-ray images during surgery and other medical procedures. The system can capture both fluoroscopic and radiographic images on a single platform, providing a more efficient and streamlined workflow. Fujifilm Europe will showcase the new FDR CROSS at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), 13th-17th of July, in Vienna.
The FDR CROSS platform provides advanced fluoroscopic and radiographic imaging, powered by Fujifilm’s FDR D-EVO III digital flat panel detectors in three sizes. The panels are interchangeable and can be selected to meet the changing imaging requirements of a busy hospital. In fluoroscopy mode, the FDR CROSS can capture fluoroscopic x-ray images for real time visualization, while radiography mode provides high quality static x-ray images pre-, during and post-procedure, normally only available with traditional mobile x-ray units. Users can quickly switch between images and imaging type on the same console screen providing a smooth workflow.
The equipment’s lightweight, compact design allows it to be easily incorporated into busy operating rooms, while the addition of omni wheels provides smooth control in all directions during examinations, making it easy to move around the hospital, and between different rooms. The built-in, quick-charge lithium‑ion battery supports eight hours of continuous use between charges, while wireless connection to a foot switch and monitor cart means that the operating room is not cluttered with cables.
Eiji Ogawa, VP Modality Solutions, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs Medical Systems Division at FUJIFILM Europe GmbH, explained: “We are excited to be launching this new imaging solution in Europe soon*. FDR CROSS is entirely designed and made by Fujifilm, and combines our high quality imaging technologies into one portable, flexible cart that can fit into any operating theatre to provide both fluoroscopic and static imaging in a single solution. Its user-friendly interface is also extremely easy to learn, so operators will quickly be able to benefit from the new equipment.”
FDR CROSS will be available to view at the Fujifilm stand – (#218) – at ECR. Visit https://seelearn-emea.fujifilm.com/ecr2022/ for more information.
