CMOS based x-ray panels for fluoroscopy, dental imaging

DALSA’s Xineos-1313 strives to be the next generation in CMOS Flat Panel for Fluoroscopy and Cone Beam CT Dental Imaging.

Dalsa Corporation [TSX: DSA], a global leader in digital image sensing technology, produces the first in a family of dynamic CMOS X-ray detector panels. The new Xineos purportedly represents the industry’s first standard CMOS flat-panel detector to deliver high speed, low dose imaging without compromises in resolution.

Dalsa’s CMOS

Dalsa said it developed Xineos to deliver better sensitivity and signal-to-noise performance compared to other standard technologies at equal X-ray dose conditions.DALSA’s CMOS Flat Panel and Cone Beam Imaging Xineos-1313 CMOS image detectors offer numerous advantages including ability to record faint image details at higher resolutions – allowing for the diagnostics of medical anomalies at earlier stages, and significantly increasing the probability of early intervention, patient recovery, and reduced treatment costs.

“With the introduction of Dalsa’s Xineos line of digital imaging X-ray panels, we are leveraging our CMOS technology to maximize the signal and minimize sources of noise in X-ray imaging,” stated Bryan Delodder, Xineos product manager at Dalsa. “In low dose conditions where competing products fail to distinguish faint signals due to noise, our advanced CMOS detectors excel to deliver the clearest images possible.”

Low-dose applications

In dental applications, the Xineos-1313-EO is designed to operate at full resolution for both frame-based panoramic imaging, at frame rates exceeding 300 fps, as well as for Medium Field of View (MFOV) Cone Beam CT applications at 30 fps. An optional “Sequence Memory” enables storing an entire CBCT image sequence inside the detector, allegedly eliminating the need for rescans due to data acquisition loss during the actual CBCT scanning procedure.

In medical applications, the Xineos-1313-FL is optimized for fluoroscopic imaging, purportedly offering the highest X-ray sensitivity combined with lowest readout noise. Xineos enables real-time imaging for cardiac, vascular, orthopedic as well as other minimally-invasive procedures that depend on real-time imaging, with minimum patient dose.

Gigabit Ethernet, simplifies connectivity, operation, company said

Xineos products are equipped with Dalsa's hardware and software implementation of the industry standard GigE Vision data interface. Xineos can reportedly connect almost any computer within minutes to produce low-noise, real-time, high resolution X-ray images.
