Fluoroscopy uses X-ray imaging to provide real-time moving images for diagnostic evaluation of soft and hard tissue conditions. It is an indispensable tool for many interventional medical procedures.
Orthopedic surgeons depend on X-ray images for minimally invasive procedures such as those on ankle, knee and wrist joints--real-time imagery is invaluable when setting fractures, both for fracture reduction and for placement of metalwork. Similarly, x-ray guided stereotactic needle biopsy allows accurate diagnosis of suspicious tissue in a minimally invasive way. In these dynamic imaging applications the low-dose sensitivity of our dynamic flat detectors multiplies our advantage; because every frame requires less dose, the cumulative dose with products such as our Xineos flat detector is dramatically lower than with competing technologies.
Teledyne DALSA's industry-leading CMOS imagers offer lower noise and higher sensitivity than competing products, allowing us to deliver better images at lower dose--benefitting both patients and practitioners.
Compared to competing technologies such as image intensifiers or amorphous silicon, our CMOS flat detectors offer significant advantages such as higher efficiency when detecting X-ray photons (aka DQE) down to the very lowest dose levels, higher frame rates (reduced motion blurring), and lower power consumption and heat dissipation (no cooling required).
Teledyne DALSA dynamic X-ray detectors are well suited for soft tissue radiography (10kV to 50kV) of patient extremities with resolution between 5 lp/mm to10 lp/mm, as well as higher energy 50kV to >100kV radiography for thick or dense structures such as the head.
