FDA approves Fujifilm's FDR AcSelerate system

Fujifilm Medical Systems (Fujifilm) has received FDA 510(k) approval for the Fuji Digital Radiograph

The company claims that FDR AcSelerate, a fully-automated digital table and upright system, produces quality images in comparison to other general radiographic systems.

It also includes new design elements and fast image cycle times that is expected to help imaging departments increase efficiency and maximize productivity.

The latest addition to company's line of DR systems, the FDR AcSelerate is a general radiography system that uses a direct image capture technology. This amorphous selenium technology, coupled with Fujifilm's image processing experience, produce clear images for better diagnostics.

The company said that the FDR AcSelerate can also provide the potential for dose reduction, and a dose area product meter (DAP) is available so physicians can monitor patient dose per exam and total dose per study.

Additionally, with a lightweight ergonomic design, AcSelerate takes less effort to position than traditional systems. The FDR AcSelerate provides image preview in two seconds with cycle times of four seconds, and the new FDX Console workstation is configured to alert technologists when exams are ready to expose.
