November 18, 2010 -- Canadian digital imaging developer DALSA of Waterloo, Ontario, has launched the first in a new family of x-ray digital detector panels based on complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology.

DALSA plans to highlight the new product, Xineos-1313, at the upcoming RSNA meeting. CMOS-based detectors offer numerous advantages, including the ability to record faint image details at higher resolutions, which allows for earlier diagnosis and intervention and reduced treatment costs, according to DALSA.

Version Xineos-1313-FL is optimized for fluoroscopic imaging, but it allows for real-time imaging for cardiac, vascular, orthopedic, and other minimally invasive procedures that depend on real-time imaging, with minimum patient dose, DALSA said.

In dental applications, DALSA's Xineos-1313-EO is designed to operate at full resolution for frame-based panoramic imaging at frame rates exceeding 300 frames per second (fps), as well as for medium field-of-view (MFOV) conebeam CT applications at 30 fps. An optional "sequence memory" enables storing an entire conebeam CT image sequence inside the detector, eliminating the need for rescans due to data acquisition loss during the actual conebeam CT scanning procedure.
