(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Say “computed radiography” and the name Fujifilm is bound to come up among those in the know. The Japanese company invented CR, introducing this digital technology to U.S. customers 27 years ago. In the decade since flat-panel x-ray detectors were introduced, Fujifilm has been a stalwart advocate of the phosphor-based technology, successfully arguing its role as a costeffective way for U.S. radiography departments to go digital, even as the price of flat-panel systems has dropped. Now the company is set to meet any and all requests for digital radiography. Last week FDA regulators cleared a solid-state detector designed by Fujifilm for sale in the U.S. The AcSelerate system, named for the selenium substrate in its detector, includes a fully automated table and upright system with automated positioning and four-second image cycle times that the company says will help imaging departments increase efficiency and maximize productivity. The direct image capture technology built into the amorphous selenium technology coupled with Fujifilm’s own image processing software support high-quality imaging at substantially reduced doses of radiation.
