Digital x-ray detector company dpiX has introduced FlashScan 30, an amorphous silicon-based digital detector that features an expanded active imaging area of 12 x 16 inches. In contrast, the Palo Alto, CA-based firm's previous product, FlashScan 20, featured an 8 x 10 inch array.

FlashScan 30 can replace conventional x-ray film cassettes in existing medical equipment, and can be readily designed into new systems, according to dpiX.

In other dpiX news, the company has announced a cooperative sales arrangement with Varian Imaging Products, under which Varian will offer FlashScan imagers to its OEM customers. The FlashScan detectors, targeted at general radiography applications, will complement Varian's Large-Area Sensing Technology (LAST), which is designed for fluoroscopy.
