Our Flat Panel X-ray Detectors (FPDs) play an important role in people’s health by helping to provide earlier medical insights, more accurate diagnosis , effective therapies, and better outcomes. They are used in radiosurgery, medical diagnostic imaging, and radiation therapy to provide real time imaging for diagnosis and less-invasive treatments.
Today’s state-of-the-art radiation therapy and radiosurgery systems demand the best in digital X-Ray detectors. These oncology treatment systems typically utilize a powerful high energy (MeV) X-Ray source to irradiate the tumor, in combination with a kilovoltage cone-beam computed tomography (CT) or stereotactic imaging system to precisely pinpoint the tumor site, before and during treatment.
PerkinElmer’s MeV FPDs are specifically designed to withstand these high-energy environments and to ensure longer detector lifetime and lower cost-of-ownership. Our detectors provide exceptional image quality and contrast resolution to delineate fine anatomical structures.
In addition the high frame rate (up to 100fps) of our FPDs help provide real time imaging contributing to improved angiography, cardiovascular and neurovascular imaging.
Applications benefitting from the high frame rate, exceptional image quality and superior contrast resolution of PerkinElmer FPDs include:
- Therapy simulation
- 3D cone-beam CT
- Proton / particle therapy
- Bone densitometry
- Cardiovascular imaging
- Neurovascular imaging
