Varian Medical Systems to Feature New Products for Digital Radiography at the CMEF Trade Fair in Chengdu, China

CHENGDU, China, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Booth H3-F06 -- Varian Medical Systems (NYSE: VAR) will exhibit X-ray tubes and digital detectors with improved image quality and higher dynamic range at China International Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF) in Chengdu, China from October 18-21.  The company will also display its technologies for treating cancer with fast, image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery.

Varian's X-Ray Products business will showcase:

  • PaxScan® X digital detector technology – Varian's proprietary, state of the art 6th generation architecture, featuring increased frame rates, improved low dose imaging and 16-bit data acquisition.  The X platform is optimized for high dose efficiency and very low electronic noise.  The result is significantly improved low dose fluoroscopy and dental panoramic imaging.  New X technology detectors to be highlighted are:
    • PaxScan 4336X digital detector – Designed to support the digital radiography (DR) market, the 4336X has a slim ergonomic design and is the company's lightest and most durable panel for mobile applications. 
    • PaxScan 1313DX digital detector – A panoramic detector using the latest high-speed electronics for advanced digital imaging for dental CBCT and mini C-arm manufacturers.

Also on display will be:

  • PaxScan 4343CB digital detector – Varian's largest dynamic detector capable of 60 frames per second (fps). The detector enables dual-energy imaging and tomosynthesis in radiography, while also serving in Universal RF and large volume cone beam CT (CBCT) applications.
  • PaxScan 3024M – The 3024M is a full field digital mammography (FFDM) compact detector suited for the new generation digital tomosynthesis and 3D mammography systems. The detector incorporates a narrow border at the chest wall and rapid image-acquisition capability.
  • Anode-End-Grounded (AEG) X-ray tubes – Built for high-performance multi-slice CT scanners.
  • PaxPower tubes – Designed for next generation diagnostic cardiac and interventional radiography C-arm applications.
  • Aftermarket  replacement tubes – New replacement CT tubes for major X-ray manufacturers single and dual-slice CT scanners.

"Varian continues to offer state-of-the-art technology enhancements designed to increase performance, improve image quality and reduce dose," said Gary Okamoto, senior sales and marketing manager for south Asia.

Oncology Systems
Varian's Oncology Systems business will show the UNIQUE™ medical linear accelerator, a single-energy machine for treating cancer with advanced forms of image-guided radiotherapy, which received China's State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) clearance in August, 2012.
