Flat-panel detectors are a type of solid-state x-ray digital radiography technology that works in the same way as image sensors used in digital photography and video. They are employed in both projectional radiography and as an alternative to x-ray image intensifiers (IIs) in fluoroscopy equipment.
Flat panel detectors are employed in medical imaging but have also been used in a number of extraoral imaging systems. The detectors can give reasonably wide matrix areas with pixel sizes less than 100 m, allowing direct digital imaging of broader regions of the body, including the head.

The Global Wireless X-Ray Flat Panel Detector market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Shimadzu launches a wireless flat-panel detector for mobile X-ray imaging. Shimadzu, a global provider of diagnostic imaging equipment, has introduced the first wireless flat-panel detector (FPD) for their MobileDaRt Evolution mobile, fully digital X-ray system.
This new CXDI-70C detector generation represents the next step in the advancement of mobile X-ray applications. It allows X-ray technicians to be even more autonomous while obtaining X-ray images on-site, such as in radiology, on the ward, in emergency rooms, traumatology, orthopaedics, or paediatrics. Also, the lack of any attached cords simplifies sterilisation of the detector.
The FPD weighs only 3.4kg and is readily positioned. Its 35cm × 43cm (14in x 17in) field of vision also allows for greater examination regions. The caesium iodide (CsI) scintillator combines great sensitivity with the lowest feasible radiation dose, reducing patient exposure.
The resolution of 2,800 x 3,408 pixels produces clear, high-quality photos. The cordless flat-panel detector is appropriate for general radiography. Hospitals that already have a MobileDaRt Evolution can have it upgraded to wireless detectors.
Besides its use with the MobileDaRt Evolution system for mobile X-rays, the CXDI-70C can also be connected to a RADspeed DR. Shimadzu’s RADspeed series includes floor- and ceiling-mounted systems for common radiography applications.
