The most important consideration for cardiovascular system used for PCI procedures is the image quality that accurately captures and visualizes the target area. Shimadzu has developed the direct-conversion FPD based on a concept completely different from all other conventional designs. Exceptional image quality achieved only by THE POWER OF SAFIRE has just arrived.
Outstanding Image quality achieved only by a Next- Generation X-ray Detector
Direct-conversion detection, which converts X-rays directly to electrical signals, eliminates the blurring that results from the scattered light generated in conventional imaging processes, realizing "pure digital imaging".
It also features the smallest pixel size in its class - 150µm - to provide fluoroscopy / radiography images with exceptional visibility.
The FPD has a 9 x 9 inch field of view, which accommodates steep cardiac angles and also provides an optimal view of peripheral regions.
State-of-the-Art Digital Technology Ensures High-Speed Response
Almost as important as image quality is the speed of image processing operations, which is an extremely important factor for stress-free PCI procedures.
Due to the improved operability and response time of the BRANSIST safire, in respect to both hardware and software. In particular, it uses a multiprocessor and its multitasking feature to improve the workflow of parallel processing and the mirroring feature to improve the security of image data.
Fast & Easy C-arm operation
The CyberGrip allows free manipulation of the 25 degree per second high-speed C-arm with one hand, the proprietary Direct Memory feature, which remembers C-arm angles, and IVR NEO, which integrates all the image processing functions necessary for PCI procedures. These are all combined on the bedside controller to allow X-ray technologists the freedom to perform PCI procedures in any manner they choose.
Upgraded Digital Filter Provides Improved Visibility
To make viewing the ultra-high-definition image from the direct conversion FPD even easier, Shimadzu now has equipped the upgraded digital filter (Power RSM Digital Filter) with image processing parameters optimized based on Shimadzu's extensive experience at clinical sites. Compared to previous FPD filters, this new filter maintains the same high visibility levels offered by conventional FPDs, but is able to provide an easier-to-see image by improving the graininess of the fluoroscopic image and making the differences in background contrast even more uniform.
