The Varian booth will showcase several filmless imaging detectors and X-ray tube products, including:

  • The PaxScan® 3030+, a 30cm x 30cm real-time digital imaging panel that operates at speeds up to 30 fps, enables physicians to monitor interventional procedures, including placement of catheters within blood vessels, in real-time. The multi-modality panel is also designed for use in cardiovascular imaging systems and surgical C-arms.
