FDA clears Fuji's AcSelerate DR

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

January 27, 2010 -- Fujifilm Medical Systems USA of Stamford, CT, has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Fuji Digital Radiography (FDR) AcSelerate system.

The fully automated digital table and upright system features Fuji's own amorphous selenium-based direct image capture technology and can be positioned for most general radiography exams with the touch of one button. The system also has a dose area product (DAP) meter to monitor patient dose per exam and total dose per study.

FDR AcSelerate provides image preview in two seconds with cycle times of four seconds, and the new FDX console workstation is configured to alert technologists when exams are ready to expose.

The system will be upgradeable to tomosynthesis and energy subtraction. Both applications are pending FDA clearance and may be available later this year.
