Product Review Fujifilm VXR Veterinary X-Ray Room - TechSci Research

Healthcare | May, 2021

From the management of clinical cases to performing research operations involving animals, veterinary imaging has a significant role to play. With continued development in imaging technologies and modalities, veterinary diagnostic solutions are rapidly evolving. New-generation X-ray systems have high-resolution capabilities that enhance productivity and reduce operating costs. Offering advanced features for all types of veterinary practices, digital radiography has become a go-to solution for many veterinarians around the world. Recently, Fujifilm has launched its first all-in-one VXR Veterinary X-Ray room designed to provide enhanced diagnostic imaging, streamline veterinarian’s workflow, and ensure good health and peace of mind for the pet owner. The digital radiography system dedicated to veterinary imaging is intended for veterinarians looking for an easy-to-use, affordable, high-quality, and low-dose X-ray solution. The VXR Veterinary X-ray room consists of high-sensitive DR detectors, and advanced image processing technologies that contribute to a safe work environment for both clinicians and patients. 

 

Features of VXR Veterinary X-Ray Room

Rotating Bucky

The VXR Veterinary X-Ray Room comes with a rotating Bucky that optimizes speed workflow as well as minimizes the risks associated with detector handling. Also, it reduces the need for handling by enabling its 14X17” GOS detector to reposition images as per the configuration (portrait and landscape).

 

Four-way floating tabletop

The four-way floating tabletop provides additional positioning flexibility, so the patient does not get disturbed while changing the cassette or using the grid. As the tabletop offers movement in every direction, the provider gets accurate positioning and precise beam alignment every time. 

 

Built-in detector connections

The built-in detector connections accelerate the image preview process and provide power to the digital radiography detector. This helps in continuous and uninterrupted functioning of the system and keeps it charged for free detector imaging or on-demand tabletop. 

 

On-board FDX Console PLUS workstation 

Mounted on an articulating arm, the On-board FDX Console PLUS workstation has a 19” touchscreen to facilitate easy navigation. Since the workstation is swivel-mounted at the eye level of the patient, technicians can stay more focused and perform quicker examinations. 

 

FDX Console PLUS generator integration 

The FDX Console PLUS generator integration enables faster and easy exam completion by automating optimal dose technique based on the menu selection and thus reduces workflow steps. The technician can always fine-tune settings based on the patient’s specific size and unique needs. 

 

FDR ES panels 

The light-weight and portable detectors provide incredible versatility by allowing the provider to perform table and free cassette-based exams conveniently. Also, leveraging Fujifilm’s patented ISS (Irradiated Side Sampling) technology, the panels can capture ultra-sharp and clear images with extra-low dosage capabilities when compared to other conventional diagnostic radiology detectors. 

 

Advanced Image Processing

Advanced Image Processing provides many ways to optimize images while embracing ALARA to minimize dose radiation. Here are some of the imaging tools that help in enhancing the overall visualization experience. 

 

·         Auto Trimming 

Recognizing the off-centre imaging of the small anatomy, the auto trimming tool just adapts the image to full view for better preview and optimized display. 

 

  • Dynamic Visualization 

The latest development in Fujifilm’s image processing, Dynamic VisualizationTM automatically identifies the region of interest and then applies certain parameters to produce high-end images as well as level content for faster and accurate diagnosis. Thus, the imaging tool reduces the need for post-processing image adjustments, thus streamlines the customer’s workflow. 

 

  • Dynamic Range Control 

The imaging tools help to clarify under-exposed and over-exposed areas and reduce retakes. Also, the wide dynamic range adaptability helps to enhance image appearance on more difficult exposure areas. 

 

  • Graduation Display Optimization 

It helps in achieving the highest contrast possible by optimizing display characteristics in order to get even wider latitudes than traditional image processing. 

 

  • Enhanced Menu Parameters

The parameters help to automate and refine images to improve sharpness, contrast, and other anatomical details that eliminates the need for post-processing. 

 

  • Multi-Frequency Processing

The image tool helps to improve visibility for varying densities and foreign structures and is highly useful for viewing spine, skull, and orthopedic hardware images. 

 

  • Flexible Noise Control 

The tool helps to suppress noise without comprising the sharpness of the images. It is beneficial for paediatrics, lumbar spine, and abdominal viewing. 

 

Dose Optimization

The innovative diagnostic solution consists of dose-optimizing technologies that enables to achieve an optimal dose efficiency allowing an improvement up to 30% when compared to traditional DP detector designs. Lowering doses does not compromise the quality of images or operational performance. 

 

Fujifilm’s diagnostic solution is engineered to help providers detect ailments accurately and enhance the productivity of the screening process. Leveraging advanced technology and modern imaging tools, VXR Veterinary system thereby sets higher standards for quality veterinary care. Utilizing the X-ray room, veterinarians, technicians, and pets can reduce their radiation exposure with the faster examination, lesser retakes, and get the best quality images at the lowest possible dosages.
