One of the FCR key components is an Imaging Plate, or IP, that is used in place of X-ray film to easily digitize X-ray images. The FCR CAPSULA XLII features the IP in an unprecedented compact frame, as it incorporates over 70 years of Fujifilm's extensive technology and know-how.
CAPSULA, meaning small box in Latin, has been cleverly trimmed to be smaller and lighter, boosting flexibility on installation and layout, while maintaining the specifications for a broad range of diagnostic imaging needs from general radiography to pantomography. Plus, the optional capability of 50-micron reading with the HR-V or HR-VI can be utilized to visualize finer and more minute structures for better diagnosis.
Compact with high efficiency
FCR CAPSULA XLII enables extremely high throughput of up to approximately 94 IPs/hr.* and the time to display the image on the CR Console monitor is approximately 23 sec., in spite of its compactness.
All-in-one unit for all diagnostic imaging needs
Three types of IP cassettes (Type CC, LC and CH**) can cover various imaging such as chest, lumbar spine, pantomography (15 × 30 cm), and extremities. Virtually all imaging requirements can be satisfied with the single unit.
Easy operations monitored on screen
Capable of automatically starting the IP reading and image processing when the IP cassette is inserted, the system is designed to complete the IP reading cycle with simple operations. Setting parameters can be changed with the buttons on the monitor screen. The screen can also display the status and the time remaining to complete the IP reading process for user-convenience.
Image display and processing — CR Console
The multi-function console handles all complex procedures of digital X-ray imaging — patient ID, image reviewing, processing and printing, DICOM interface, and more — as well as quality assurance functions all within a single workstation.
