Varian Medical Systems has obtained FDA clearance to market a lightweight, portable system designed to produce high-quality digital x-ray images. The new PaxScan 4030 Medical Digital Imaging System combines a computer workstation with imaging software and an amorphous silicon flat-panel image detector. It is intended for emergency and trauma situations, according to Varian. PaxScan 4030 may be particularly suited to military applications, due to its light weight and portability. According to the company, the solid-state sealed DR system will be more reliable in harsh conditions than film or CR systems, which can be vulnerable to heat and contamination in dusty environments.
