Xineos and Argus X-ray imaging solutions
Dalsa has introduced two X-ray imaging solutions for dental and medical applications. Xineos is a family of dynamic CMOS X-ray detector panels, delivering high speed, low dose imaging without compromises in resolution. The Argus platform of CCD/TDI-based X-ray image scanners offers high resolution scintillation technology and standard Ethernet connectivity, allowing images to be ported directly to the host computer for image processing. Assembled with advanced MEMs fabrication techniques, the Argus detectors can be produced for large fields of view up to 44cm wide.
CMOS image detectors, as found in the Xineos products, offer numerous advantages including the ability to record faint image details at higher resolutions, allowing the diagnostics of medical anomalies at earlier stages.
In dental applications, Dalsa's Xineos-1313-EO is designed to operate at full resolution for both frame-based panoramic imaging, at frame rates exceeding 300fps, as well as for Medium Field of View (MFOV) Cone Beam CT applications at 30fps. An optional 'sequence memory' enables storing an entire CBCT image sequence inside the detector, eliminating the need for re-scans due to data acquisition loss during the scanning procedure.
In medical applications the Xineos-1313-FL is optimised for fluoroscopic imaging, offering the high X-ray sensitivity combined with low readout noise. Xineos enables real-time imaging for cardiac, vascular, orthopaedic as well as other minimally-invasive procedures that depend on real-time imaging, with minimum patient dose. Xineos products are equipped with a GigE Vision data interface.
The Argus platform incorporates Dalsa's TDI (Time Delay and Integration) technology for high sensitivity and detective quantum efficiency (DQE), and excellent image quality at low patient exposures.
The Argus-Pan is designed for extra-oral imaging applications. The extremely low noise operation, coupled with high performance 16-bit ADC, provides up to 80dB of dynamic range.
In addition to the Argus-Pan, the Argus line scan TDI X-ray imaging platform will support two other modules, the Argus-DQ, and the Argus-Scan. The Argus-DQ features an advanced scintillation technology for ultra-high resolution and low noise applications like mammography. The Argus-Scan provides a 44cm wide field of view ideal for applications such as body scanning and trauma imaging.
