WATERLOO, Ontario, Dec. 13, 2010 — Dalsa Corp.’s new Xineos-1313 is a next-generation CMOS flat panel for fluoroscopy and cone beam computed tomography (CT) dental imaging applications.
The digital x-ray detector panels deliver high-speed, low-dose imaging without compromising resolution.
The panels were developed to deliver high sensitivity and good signal-to-noise performance compared to other standard technologies at equal x-ray dose conditions. CMOS image detectors offer numerous advantages including the ability to record faint image details at higher resolutions, enabling diagnosis of medical anomalies at earlier stages, and increasing the probability of early intervention, patient recovery and reduced treatment costs.
In dental applications, the company’s Xineos-1313-EO is designed to operate at full resolution for frame-based panoramic imaging, at frame rates exceeding 300 fps, as well as for medium-field-of-view cone beam CT applications at 30 fps. An optional "sequence memory" enables storing an entire cone beam CT image sequence inside the detector, eliminating the need for re-scans due to data acquisition loss during the scanning procedure.
In medical applications the Xineos-1313-FL is optimized for fluoroscopic imaging, offering high x-ray sensitivity combined with low readout noise. It enables real-time imaging for cardiac, vascular, orthopedic and other minimally invasive procedures that depend on real-time imaging, with minimum patient dose.
The products are equipped with proprietary hardware and software implementation of the industry standard GigE Vision data interface and can connect to almost any computer within minutes to produce low-noise, real-time, high-resolution x-ray images.
