The devices contribute to advanced X-ray control and image generation with reduced noise using AI

December 19, 2022 — Canon Inc. announced the launch in July, in markets outside of Japan1, of the CXDI-Elite series of wireless digital radiography (DR2) devices, including the CXDI-720C Wireless sensor unit.

In recent years, there has been growing need for DR devices that provide both ease-of-use in a variety of imaging scenarios as well as higher image quality to support greater diagnostic accuracy. In addition, as such technology continues to evolve, there is a concerted effort to minimize patients' radiation dosage.

With the aim of meeting such needs for a wide range of customers, Canon has launched two new series of devices under its CXDI brand of DR devices—the CXDI-Pro series, which features enhanced basic functionality and ease-of-use, and the CXDI-Elite series that provides even greater performance and functionality. The new half-cassette size CXDI-720C Wireless unit realizes superb basic functionality while delivering both high sensitivity and high image quality, as well as built-in support for X-ray dosage control, assisting medical professionals in their diagnostic work.

The CXDI-Elite series is Canon's first digital X-ray imaging system to utilize Built-in AEC Assistance3 technology designed for general X-ray imaging. With this proprietary technology, the device's X-ray image sensor uses identical elements that are simultaneously capable of performing either image generation or real-time detection of the pixel value corresponding to emitted X-rays, notifying the X-ray generator when pixel value reaches a preset value. By providing such feedback, the technology helps enable greater control over X-ray dosage.

The new series also utilizes Canon's Intelligent NR4 image processing technology, which decreases signal noise compared with conventional processing technologies, reducing unnecessary noise and graininess while maintaining the level of signal strength required for imaging.

  • 2DR systems employ a scintillator that converts X-rays into visible light, and a flat-panel sensor to use the light to generate a digital image.
  • 3Available as an optional purchase. For more information, please refer to the press release from March 25, 2021.
  • 4CXDI Control Software (version 3.10 and later) available as an optional purchase. Intelligent NR uses AI technology at the design stage of signal noise reduction processing. The product itself does not learn with AI from acquired images. For more information, please refer to the press release from March 23, 2022.
