While it is agreed that flat panel detectors are both a practical and economical option for bringing digital radiography to medical imaging scanning, the worst can be expected if the panel faces damages as it rides around the facility.
For this reason, it is essential to take the necessary precautionary measures to ensure that the facility doesn’t face a loss through flat panel damages. This is where the use of flat panel detector cases come into play.
By using a flat panel detector case, improved protective capabilities can be ensured. A hard plastic shell would lock the panel and cover the edges of the device. These cases also offer a handle and protection from light impact damage, which could happen during patient positioning, during system movement through a hospital, as well as from fluid leakage or electronic damage.
The case also possesses an integrated scatter grid and also offers improved quality of images produced.
However, these cases do come with their own set of considerations. Flat panel cases will not be able to protect the panel from a bending force of trying to transfer a 300-pound patient. It is also suggested that flat panel cases do not be used with fixed x-ray systems.
A flat panel detector case averages between 1, 400 to 1, 500 USD. However, by having a flat panel detector case, it practically pays for itself as it shields even a single impact incident.
