Summary

Experience meets innovation


FDR AcSelerate is the innovative environment designed to improve the experience for both the technologist and the patient. Featuring automated positioning and optional, fully-automated advanced applications, including:



  • Long length image stitching

  • Dual energy subtraction

  • Tomosynthesis

  • Linear tomography


FDR AcSelerate provides impressive speed and repeatability for faster workflow. Fujifilm's proprietary Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) technology captures images with high sharpness and DQE with lightning-fast preview and cycle times.

Designed to speed workflow


FDR AcSelerate offers a variety of features and automated functions that boost productivity and efficiency:



  • SpeedLink™ automatically presets preferred, dose-saving techniques to the exam menu selected at the FDX Console

  • Auto-positioning automatically moves the x-ray tube to the required position for the exam (tube and detector can also be positioned manually)

  • Auto-collimation automatically adjusts field size based on Source to Image Distance (SID) and exam type selected at the workstation

  • Automatic x-ray tube tracking to manual movements of the table and upright detector

  • Auto-filtering provides three filter thickness options that automatically adjust to the body part designated by the exposure menu selection

  • 2 second image preview, 4 second cycle times


Ergonomic design is easy on technologists and patients



  • Lightweight ceiling suspension and tube head system for smooth and easy movement to any position, angle or height 

  • Tilting upright stand (-20 to 90°) with motorized elevation

  • Large area tabletop and stroke with motorized elevation is easy to position and accommodates up to 550 lbs


AcSelerate Suite is also available with an AcSelerate-flex table, a bucky-design table which allows flexibility for use with a removable FDR D-EVO detector for free positioning exams.

    New flat panel detector


    CsI scintillator - Fujifilm’s new Flat Panel Detector capitalizes on the high X-ray absorption characteristics of CsI and the ability of its needle crystals to deliver high image sharpness.



    ISS technology - Fujifilm has developed a new Flat Panel Detector (CsI) featuring its proprietary “Irradiation Side Sampling” (ISS) technology which offers high image quality. By reading the data from the surface of the detector (the incident side), light is collected before the radiation can be attenuated and diffused within the detector. Thus MTF and DQE are significantly improved when compared to conventional methods.



     


    New console advance


    New image processing, Dynamic Visualization - Fujifilm’s renowned diagnostic image quality has now evolved still further. Leveraging its world leading image processing technology, built on a long heritage in medical imaging, and its endless pursuit of improvements in diagnostic imaging, Fujifilm’s CONSOLE ADVANCE is more than able to meet the exacting demands of the modern medical market. Fujifilm’s image processing technology automatically recognizes the region of interest and applies the optimum image processing parameters in order to deliver reproducible, high quality images every time. This greatly streamlines workflow thus reducing the load on Technologists and speeding up diagnosis for Doctors.


     



     


    A highly sensitive DR Detector with unique features - FDR AcSelerate is equipped with an innovative FPD, ISS and Image Intelligence™ technology that produces extremely high image quality. The use of these unique features is particularly useful in producing high quality chest and abdomen images whilst using minimized radiation doses.


    Benefits

    Increase efficiency with automated functionality



    • Auto-Positioning
      By selecting the program from the exposure menu, on the CONSOLE ADVANCE, the X-ray tube automatically moves to the required position using the 5-axis motorized tube support. Manual adjustments can always be applied, however, the simplicity and accuracy of AcSelerate make manual movements a thing of the past!




    • Auto-Tracking
      When the patient is on the table, the FPD will auto-track the manual movement of the X-ray tube to allow examination of the intended body part. If the patient is at the upright detector, the X-ray tube will automatically track the vertical movements of the FPD.




    • Auto-Collimation
      The required collimation area, taking into account the SID (Source to Image Distance) is automatically adjusted to the body part selected from the exposure menu. Manual adjustments can be made easily if needed.



    • Auto-Filtering
      Three sizes of copper filter automatically adjust to the designated body part selected on the exposure menu thus reducing unnecessary radiation, this filtration can also be used manually.


    Wide range of movement for various examinations




    • Light-weight Ceiling Suspension System
      The lightweight ceiling suspension system and tube head provide smooth movement to any position, to any angle and to any height within the examination room. The support features an extended range of vertical movement, 1750mm, which allows for easy examination of the lower extremities.




    • Tilting Upright Stand
      The vertical movement of the flat panel detector can be operated either using the motor or manually from a height of 390mm from the floor to 1900 mm. The motorized vertical movement allows you to improve your workflow when taking a variety of exposures not only of the chest and abdomen but also exposures from the cervical spine down to the lower extremities. In addition, with the minus 20 degrees to 90 degrees angulation capability, the skull and upper extremities can also be examined as with the exposures of the elbow.




    • Table
      The table size is 2400mm 850 mm with an adjustable height of 550 mm to 930 mm from the floor, and weight capacity is 250 kg, making it extremely flexible for easy positioning and for accommodating all types and sizes of patients. The floating top table is equipped with three control methods depending upon operational need. Tomography is available as a standard feature.



    Generator



    • Ease of use in connection with CONSOLE ADVANCE
      Intuitive and flexible for any type of exams, the Generator can perform a wide range of studies on patients of all sizes from babies to adults. It also features CONSOLE ADVANCE, an easy-to-view display, which enables you to set the exposure settings easily and to start up and shut down the system quickly. 



     

    Also available with cassette tray, for a wide range of free exposure positions


     


    *D-EVO plus C35i/s and D-EVO G35i/s are selectable
