Shimadzu has developed a range of products with image intensifiers to facilitate angiography. The products developed with image intensifiers are :
Conventional image intensifiers or the ones available with indirect FPD technology are based on Scintillator technology. Image intensifiers such as these converts X ray to light and then convert them to video signals. These image intensifiers cause data loss through spatial resolution process of light scattering. Shimadzu Safire Technology has developed image intensifiers that directly convert the image without light process pass providing superior image quality and spatial resolution.
