The multipurpose, portable flat-panel detector measures 14 x 17 inches. It comes with Anytime, Vieworks' automatic exposure detection (AED) feature, eliminating the need for a cabled connection between the x-ray system and generator, the firm said.
Anytime uses a separate AED trigger sensor, and the Vivix-S 1417N does not create artificial defects as the whole of the flat-panel detects x-ray signal to create images, Vieworks added. The new detector also uses near-field communication for quick and easy configurations, and clinicians can swap batteries without turning off the detector.
The Vivix-S 1417N is also dust- and water-resistant and offers wireless communication for quick throughput.
