The Ultimax with image intensifier and CCD camera technology is already well established as a premium multipurpose digital imaging and interventional system. The additional DynaDirect FPD technology with its exceptional high-resolution performance simply makes the Ultimax the most advanced high performance multipurpose digital imaging system available. The combination of the Ultimax and DynaDirect technology is the realization of a technological dream that demanded exceptional thought, research and design. The benefits and advantages of flatpanel technology are now being discussed so frequently by all concerned with diagnostic radiology that at times one has the feeling that we are stating the obvious. These advantages include improved exposure latitude, improved image resolution, zero image distortion, space saving and X-ray dose reduction. FPD technology clearly represents the future but it is only now emerging as a viable product that can be presented to the diagnostic world. The fact remains that all Ultimax systems can be supplied in the future with DynaDirect technology.
