Canon Demonstrates Portable DR at 2007 RSNA

November 29, 2007 – Canon U.S.A., Inc. is showcasing its current line of portable digital radiography (DR) systems this week at the 2007 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA) in Chicago.

The Canon CXDI-50G Portable DR system offers a thin, lightweight design and has a large imaging area of 14 by 17 inches. When combined with a mobile unit on wheels, the CXDI-50G can bring digital radiography directly to the patient’s bedside. The CXDI-50G is being shown integrated with multiple portable X-ray units, including the upgraded AMX-4 , RadPro 40kW Mobile Digital X-Ray System and the RadPro 4kW Portable Digital X-Ray System. Also on display is a Field Deployable Digital Radiography System (FDDRS) integrated with the Canon CXDI-50G Portable DR System, suitable for examinations required in military or field operations.

The company says the RadPro 40kW Digital Mobile X-Ray System, integrated with a Canon CXDI-50G Portable Sensor, is ideal for ER, OR and ICU environments. A high-frequency generator enables clear and detailed images. A large, easy-to-read, user-friendly 12-inch touch-screen offers more than 500 anatomical programs, while a slimmer profile allows for precise positioning and improved portability. A retractable USB cord provides quick connection for virtually immediate image transfers to many DICOM output devices and to multiple network configurations such as PACS or RIS.

Also on display will be the Canon CXDI-50C Portable DR system, which features a 14 by 17 inch image area with the LANMIT 7 (Large Area New-MIS Sensor and TFT) detector technology, and delivers high-quality diagnostic images efficiently with minimal X-ray exposure to patients, making it ideal for pediatric and orthopedic use; and the Canon CXDI-40EC General DR system, which is equipped with a large 17 by 17 inch imaging area for capturing X-ray images, large and small, without the need to adjust detector orientation.

Canon also showed its CXDI-40EG General DR System as a cost-effective retrofit to upgrade older film X-ray machines. It provides a 17 by 17 inch imaging area and lets users capture desired anatomical views for both large and small format X-rays in portrait or landscape orientation without having to rotate the detector unit. This system can be retrofitted onto almost any new or existing bucky table, upright tilting wall stand, universal or ceiling suspended multi-positioning unit.
