Imaging suppliers Analogic has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for its flat-panel X-ray detector (FPD), GR17, developed by the company's Canadian subsidiary, Anrad. The company says GR17 has been designed for use in a variety of radiological applications and uses a 17-inch square panel to optimise patient exposure, and to simplify the positioning of the detector around the patient. It is the fifth FPD to be produced by Anrad, and uses amorphous selenium-based technology to capture and convert X-ray waves directly into digital signals. Analogic is based in Peabody, Massachusetts. John Wood, President and CEO of Analogic, said: "The GR17 represents another step forward in Analogic's commitment to digital radiography."
