The Fujifilm Computed Radiography (FCR) XL-2 and XC-2 are digital radiography systems utilizing storage phosphor Imaging Plates (IP) as an x-ray detection device.
FCR XL-2 and XC-2 units scan and process x-ray image information from an IP that has been exposed using a cassette-type x-ray stand. This system can also print out hard copies on film via a connected image recorder and can transmit digital images to PACS.
The FCR XL-2 and XC-2 provides general x-ray imaging for Private Practitioners. FCR XL-2 and XC-2 systems also include the capability to perform Pantomographic exams.
Due to the benefits of digital image processing, the system produces radiographs that have a high diagnostic value and are easy to read. Fast Scan (200μ), Standard High Resolution (100μ) and High Resolution (50μ) size using HR IP’s is possible with the FCR XL-2.
Reading modes are user selectable. Fast Scan reading provides maximum throughput for the XL-2 for both 14×14” and 14×17” sizes, while standard HQ reading mode provides 10 pixel/mm resolution image acquisition and display for all intake sizes without impacting system speed.
High Resolution (50μ) Scanning is available with the FCR XL-2 for 18x24cm and 24x30cm sized (HR IP’s) making it ideal for orthopedic and extremity applications, where seeing fine detail is critical.
The system’s wide latitude and automatic sensitivity adjustment function protects radiographs from variations in x-ray exposure conditions. This results in consistent image density for all types of radiographs. Image processing parameters are selected through anatomical region selection menus.
The FCR XL-2 reader can be network connected to multiple Flash IIP (Image & Information Processor) consoles and other FCR readers for maximum scalability and redundancy.
The FCR XC-2 supports a dedicated relationship of the reader to the Flash IIP console workstation.
A Flash IIP console workstation is provided standard with each reader unit. Fujifilm’s Flash IIP is designed for simple and fast patient identification, image viewing, reprocessing and optimization. It integrates patient identification process (via manual entry or automated by connection with RIS/HIS using DICOM Worklist Management) with Fujifilm’s intelligent image processing and ability to transmit images to PACS and/or imagers. The Flash IIP features a simplified user interface, which allows for complete patient processing in as few as 3 easy steps. See Flash IIP datasheet for more information.
Dedicated XL-2, XC-2 cart: Heavy duty engineered stand providing countertop and cassette holder space for the reader, with the CPU and monitor of the Flash IIP console.
