First DR clinical results presented at CAR meeting

The first clinical results of Sterling Diagnostic Imaging's Direct Radiography technology were presented late last month at the International Congress of Computer Assisted Radiology in Berlin. Dr. Gary Shaber, director of the division of general diagnostic radiology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, presented a study comparing images acquired with a 14 x 17 DR detector array with conventional screen-film x-ray. The study included over 50 patient chest and abdomen studies.

DR uses a detector made from a layer of amorphous selenium deposited on an amorphous silicon thin-film transistor array to digitize x-rays directly. The company plans to introduce DR in 1998, pending Food and Drug Administration clearance.

In other DR news, Sterling, of Greenville, NC, announced that it has expanded its Glasgow, DE, manufacturing facilities in preparation for a commercial launch of the technology. The Glasgow site manufactures Sterling's electronic imaging products, such as its Helios printers and Linx networking products, while Sterling x-ray film is manufactured in Brevard, NC.
