Canon Medical Systems is introducing an all-new size for its high-definition flat panel detector for vascular and interventional radiology (IR) procedures, a press release from the company reports. Canon Medical claims that the 12”×16” high-definition detector provides more than twice the spatial resolution of conventional flat panel detectors, helping clinicians see fine details in complex interventional procedures. The new 12”×16” detector joins the existing 12”×12” high-definition detector to provide clinicians with the ideal size for their unique procedural needs.
“All those things which the device does that were impossible to see with conventional flat panel detectors become overly abundant with high-definition detector technology,” said Adnan Siddiqui, director of neurological stroke services, Kaleida Health; CEO of The Jacobs Institute; and professor of neurosurgery at the University at Buffalo, New York, USA).
Now available on Canon Alphenix interventional systems, the 12”×16” high-definition flat panel detector offers the highest resolution in the market, according to Canon Medical. Made up of what the company asserts to be the world’s first true high-definition detector—with 76-micron resolution—for resolving fine details, the hybrid 12″x16″ panel is combined with high-definition flat panel technology that results in resolutions of 2.6lp/mm (standard) and 6.6lp/mm (high-definition detector).
Canon Medical is showcasing Alphenix high-definition detector technology at this year’s virtual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting (28 November–2 December, Illinois, United States). Learn more about the Alphenix’s full suite of technology here.
