Radiation therapy firm Varian Medical Systems plans to highlight a number of its medical imaging products next month at the annual ECR 2016 meeting in Vienna.
Among the offerings the company will focus on will include its new Cardinal CT tube, which is designed for use in new CT scanners and as a replacement for the Stargate/CTR-2150 tube.
Varian also will exhibit its 4336W and 2530W wireless digital x-ray detectors. The lightweight, cassette-sized portable units measure 43 x 36 cm and are designed for enhanced dose efficiency, very low electronic noise, and consistent wireless transmission rates.
Also for the first time at ECR 2016, Varian will promote its recent acquisition of Claymount, a supplier of high-voltage connectors, ionization chambers, and solid-state automatic exposure control systems to regulate dose for medical x-rays.
In other news, Varian is in the process of completing its acquisition of MeVis Medical Solutions, headquartered in Bremen, Germany. The advanced visualization firm specializes in image-processing software and services for cancer screening.
