4800: Digital detector for dynamic cardiovascular imaging

The 4800 uses the same technology as the 4600, the first digital detector in the Pixium® family, combining an amorphous silicon flat panel with a caesium iodide scintillator (CsI/TI). The result is a detector which provides advanced dynamic features for excellent and extremely reliable image quality. The 4800's Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE) provides exceptional digital images which enable very efficient fluoroscopy exams.

The 4800's compact size (25 cm diagonal) facilitates operation at all angles and provides easier patient access in single and biplane systems. The single-plate detector offers high contrast, high spatial and temporal resolution at a very low X-ray dose. 

Clinical use has shown a 35% dose reduction compared to other detection technologies. In addition, its design and performance characteristics makes the 4800 ideal for Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) and high speed acquisition of up to 60 frames per second in pediatrics.
