Detection Technology Announces Global Availability of TFT Flat Panel Detectors
Detection Technology, a global leader in X-ray detector solutions, announces the global availability of a comprehensive range of TFT (thin-film transistor) flat panel detectors. The portfolio includes IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) and a-Si (amorphous silicon) technology-based solutions optimized for medical and industrial applications.

"We are pleased to start worldwide sales of our TFT flat panel detector solutions as the timing is just right. IGZO is replacing CMOS and a-Si technologies in dental CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) applications for large fields of view, fast frame rates, and excellent low-dose performance. In turn, in surgical applications, IGZO will replace image intensifiers and offer improved low dose performance compared to a-Si. We now launch two IGZO detectors for surgical and will expand our portfolio soon to dental applications," says Tuomas Holma, Director of Product Management of the Medical Business Unit at Detection Technology.

"The industrial market is rapidly changing. New requirements are coming in from the automotive industry, especially for inspection of large castings, electronics, and batteries. We have been pioneers in providing CT and line scan solutions for industrial customers and are now even better positioned to serve them with the addition of TFT flat panel detectors. We kick off global sales with a range of dynamic a-Si detectors that provide high resolution, large field of view, fast frame rates, and excellent radiation hardness for inline DR and CT applications. We are also launching a static a-Si panel for component counting. We are ambitious, and our TFT detector portfolio for industrial is also about to expand," says Tomi Fält, Director of Product management of the Industrial Business Unit at Detection Technology.

At present, the portfolio includes the following sellable items:

X-Panel 2323z FDM, a dynamic IGZO X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for mobile C-arms, image intensifier (II) replacement, and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)

X-Panel 3030z FDM, a dynamic IGZO X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for mobile C-arms, medical CBCT and digital subtraction angiography (DSA)
X-Panel 4343a FQI, an a-Si X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for industrial CBCT and non-destructive testing (NDT)

X-Panel 2530a FQI-XM, an a-Si X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for battery inspection, in-line digital radiography (DR) and computed tomography (CT)
X-Panel 4343a FQI-H, an a-Si X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for high-energy NDT (applications utilizing linear accelerators)

X-Panel 4343a FSI, an a-Si X-ray flat panel detector, optimized for component counting.

"Our state-of-the-art TFT flat panel offering is rapidly evolving. We have numerous different solutions and their variants in the pipeline, and our portfolio will be further expanded for global sales towards the end of this year."

The TFT flat panels are now available for purchase worldwide. For more information on pricing, availability, and technical specifications, please contact the Detection Technology sales.

Detection Technology will showcase the key features of its X-Panel portfolio at the upcoming exhibitions. The company will be exhibiting medical solutions at the CMEF show in Shanghai, China on 11—14 April, and solutions optimized for versatile industrial applications at the WCNDT show in Incheon, Korea on 27—31 May.
