Samsung has unveiled a new flagship solution, the AccE Glass-Free Detector.
Recently cleared by the FDA, the radiography device is designed to capture high-resolution images with the quality of a digital detector.
It also weighs approximately 4.5 pounds without the battery, making it 27% lighter than the company’s conventional model, the S4335-AW.
KA Imaging’s Reveal 35C detector, currently available as an upgrade solution in the US and selected geographies, can now be sold in the European Union. The detector recently obtained the CE Mark. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a free demo.
“From the ER to the OR, our glass-free detector exhibits reliability in versatile environments to help get the job done — and done well,” said David Legg, vice president and head of Boston Imaging, Samsung’s U.S. subsidiary that oversees manufacturing and distribution of the company’s digital radiography and ultrasound systems, in a statement.
The AccE Glass-Free Detector has a 76% detective quantum efficiency for measuring signal-to-noise ratio in image quality.
It is made up of a non-glass flexible panel with center-engraving to position patients, and can hold up to 441 pounds of patient load and up to 881 pounds of surface load.
A side chamfer makes lifting easier and a rear grip makes transportation better. It also is dust and water resistant, making it usable in fast-paced environments.
The solution is available for use on the AccE GM85 mobile Digital Radiography system and will soon be able to be used with the AccE GC85A.
Formerly known as NeuroLogica, Boston Imaging changed its brand name
in February 2022 and became the U.S. headquarters for sales, marketing and distribution of Samsung’s DR and US business.
The name change was a strategic decision to allow Samsung to focus more on core businesses.
The company most recently announced that it is splitting its ultrasound business
into separate entities, one focused on general radiology and the other specifically on women’s health.
"I'm excited to be a part of the Samsung vision of segmenting the ultrasound business, enabling us to provide dedicated people, products and processes to address the specific needs of Women's Health patients and clinicians," said Tracy Bury, who was appointed head of the women’s health ultrasound business.
Samsung did not respond to HCB News for comment.
