FDR AcSelerate Suite™

Experience meets innovation

FDR AcSelerate is the innovative digital radiography environment designed to improve the experience for both the technologist and the patient. Featuring automated positioning and optional, fully-automated advanced applications.

FDR AcSelerate provides impressive speed and repeatability for faster workflow. Fujifilm’s proprietary Irradiated Side Sampling (ISS) technology captures images with high sharpness and DQE with lightning-fast preview and cycle times.

Designed to speed workflow

FDR AcSelerate offers a variety of features and automated functions that boost x-ray room productivity and efficiency:

  • SpeedLink™ automatically presets preferred, dose-saving techniques: collimation field size and more, to the exam menu selected at the FDX Console
  • Auto-positioning automatically moves the x-ray tube and corresponding detector to the required position for the exam (tube and detector can also be positioned manually)
  • Auto-collimation automatically adjusts field size based on Source to Image Distance (SID) and exam type selected at the workstation
  • Automatic x-ray tube tracking to manual movements of the table and upright detector
  • Auto-filtering provides three filter thickness options that automatically adjust to the body part designated by the exposure menu selection
  • 2-second image preview, 4-second cycle times

Ergonomic design is easy on technologists and patients

  • Lightweight ceiling suspension and tube head system for smooth and easy movement to any position, angle or height
  • Tilting upright stand (-20 to 90°) with motorized elevation
  • Large area tabletop and stroke with motorized elevation is easy to position and accommodates up to 550 lbs.

AcSelerate Suite is also available with an AcSelerate-flex table, a bucky-design table which allows flexibility for use with a removable FDR D-EVO or FDR D-EVO II detector for free positioning exams.

Cesium detectors provide sharp images with lower dose

Fujifilm’s CsI detectors take the inherently sharp imaging capabilities of CsI to the next level with Fujifilm’s patented ISS, which helps to produce higher DQE and MTF at lower doses by limiting the scatter of data within the detector capture circuitry. In typical detectors, the image is read near the base of the crystals, where they flare and are fused to adjoining crystals. With Fujifilm’s ISS, readout electronics are positioned at the top points of the crystals to further sharpen data collected, capturing where signals are strongest and less diffused, and yielding sharper images at lower doses.

Dynamic Visualization™ for exceptional images

FDR AcSelerate incorporates the robust FDX Console, driven by Fujifilm’s exceptional Dynamic Visualization. Dynamic Visualization image processing automatically recognizes the region of interest and applies the optimum image processing parameters throughout the entire exposure field, dynamically extending visibility, contrast, and window and leveling capabilities for more confident diagnosis. Additional advanced functions include:

  • Multi-Frequency Processing (MFP): Applies edge enhancement and gray scale processing to multiple frequencies, improving visibility for varying densities and foreign structures. Useful in viewing spine, skull and orthopedic hardware images
  • Flexible Noise Control (FNC): Selectively suppresses noise without loss of sharpness. Useful for pediatrics, lumbar spine and abdomen views
  • Grid Pattern Removal (GPR): Intelligently removes moiré patterns caused by grids
  • Fujifilm DR to Fujifilm Synapse PACS viewing shortcuts: Applies radiologist-specific single-click processing preferences to views, significantly simplifying workflow

Automated Long Length Stitching

Fast, easy, synchronized detector and tube movements capture multiple rapid exposures for one long length image.

  • Full length image capture in as little as 20 seconds
  • Length: up to 71” at upright and 31.5” supine on table

Fujifilm innovations bring these images to even higher diagnostic visibility with:

  • Motion correction: recognizes and compensates for minor patient movement between exposures
  • Gradation processing: adjusts for changes in density and contrast to display a seamless transition from one image to the next

Linear Tomography (included standard)

FDR AcSelerate features linear tomography application that utilizes the automated positioning capability to capture multiple image slices. AcSelerate’s linear tomography provides:

  • A more 3D view than a single x-ray image
  • Lower x-ray exposure than conventional CT scan
  • Multiple captures at varying angles, from 5-40° with cut lines of 0-10”
  • Tube arc and detector move together
  • Provides visualization of fine line fractures, head and neck trauma, lung screening, orthopedics

Dual Energy Subtraction (option)

FDR AcSelerate uses dual energy subtraction (DES), an advanced radiographic technology that removes anatomical structures of high and low x-ray absorption, such as soft tissue or bone, which along with other underlying and/or overlying structures can obscure suspected pathology.

The DES process captures two images at different x-ray energy levels, then subjects them to ‘subtraction processing’ to produce three resulting images: traditional, bone only, and soft tissue only views. DES enhances differentiation between bone and soft tissue structures to help better visualize suspect areas.

Fujifilm’s innovative approach to dual energy subtraction further enhances diagnostic visibility with three advanced processing algorithms:

  1. 1.Multi-Stage Registration, or MSR, which intelligently corrects and compensates for patient motion, such as: breathing and heart beat artifacts which are typically characteristic of dual energy subtraction
  2. 2.Patient Thickness Compensation, which recognizes high density anatomy to optimize and clarify over- or under-penetrated areas of the entire image
  3. 3.Advanced Noise Reduction, which selectively suppresses noise at multiple frequency levels without losing sharpness

Fujifilm AcSelerate’s DES delivers enhanced diagnostic detail, making it an innovative new standard of care for routine chest exams in today’s changing healthcare environment, as well as offering an effective follow-up or screening tool to help rule out the need for other, more dose-intensive and higher cost exams such as CT.

Digital Tomosynthesis (option)

AcSelerate 3D enhanced imaging technology, digital tomosynthesis is an advanced radiography application that produces multiple tomographic slices from a single sweep of the x-ray tube. Through reconstruction of the cross section areas of interest, digital tomosynthesis provides radiologists added dimension of image “depth.” Images can be displayed on a PACS workstation in a cine mode or frame by frame.

AcSelerate’s digital tomosynthesis (DTS) captures up to 60 rapid exposures in a single sweep, using either the upright or table, tube angles ranging from 10 to 60º, and a 4-12 second sweep time. DTS imaging can be particularly useful for visualization of fine line orthopedic fractures, clearer imaging around orthopedic hardware, head & neck trauma, lung screening and or to pre-screen or rule out need for CT. All of which is especially beneficial to the patient since DTS is considerably less dose and lower cost than a CT exam.

Fujifilm’s intelligent post-processing features the ability to reconstruct images at different slice thicknesses , allowing additional diagnostic visibility from the original data acquired, without re-exposing the patient.
