International Trade Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 17-20.

The Varian booth will showcase several filmless imaging detectors and
X-ray tube products, including:

    -- The PaxScan(R) 3030+, a 30cm x 30cm real-time digital imaging panel
       that operates at speeds up to 30 fps, enables physicians to  monitor
       interventional procedures, including placement of catheters  within
       blood vessels, in real-time. The multi-modality panel is also designed
       for use in cardiovascular imaging systems and surgical C-arms.  The

       contrast resolution needed by critical applications such as cardiology
       and angiography.

       cassettes used in existing radiographic and multi-bucky applications.
       The panel is also available with a portable hand-held enclosure for
       use in mobile imaging systems.
