December 4, 2008 – Canon U.S.A. is showcasing its Portable Flat Panel Detector with the detachable cable, in addition to other DR systems, at the 2008 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2008).
Canon is featuring the Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector, which succeeds the Canon’s CXDI-31, a portable DR system. The CXDI-60G realizes a new level of freedom and immediacy for diagnosis in the X-ray room and beyond. Thin (less than an inch thick), lightweight (5.9 pounds) and robust, the CXDI-60G offers true portability and flexibility in high-quality DR. The CXDI-60G offers an effective imaging area of 9 x 11 inches, accommodating a diverse range of applications, including X-raying of hands, elbows, feet and knees, among the most common orthopedic examinations. Added benefits include low power consumption and a detachable sensor cable for convenient maintenance and installation. The model’s detachable sensor cable, which provides power to the unit and transfers data, enables easy room-to-room installation from multiple locations such as the patient’s bedside or wheelchair, trauma or ICU (with an optional power box and PC), and fits right into most neo-natal incubator trays.
The Canon CXDI-50G Portable DR System offers a thin, lightweight design and has a large imaging area (14 x 17 inches). When combined with a compatible mobile unit, the award-winning Canon CXDI-50G can bring digital radiography directly to the patient's bedside. Designed for diverse applications, the compact design is a practical solution for a wide range of room applications that can be difficult to perform with fixed devices. The CXDI-50G will be shown integrated with the RadPRO 40kW High Frequency Digital Mobile X-Ray System. The integration of these two systems can improve workflow, patient throughput and patient care. Fast processing times of the innovative detector make it easy to capture high-quality diagnostic images for routine diagnosis, as well as challenging trauma and bedside exams, while adding the flexibility in patient positioning and the ability to manage or manipulate images at the bedside.
Plus, Canon is showcasing its Canon CXDI-40EC DR System, which provides the LANMIT 8 sensor and is equipped with a large 17 X 17 inch imaging area for capturing X-ray images large and small without the need to adjust detector orientation. At the core of the CXDI-40EC DR system is the Canon Amorphous Silicon (a-Si) Flat Panel Detector with Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, which reportedly produces clear, high-resolution diagnostic images in 12-bit grayscale (4096 gradations). The CXDI-40EC DR system will be shown integrated with the RadPRO FM1 Floor Mounted Radiography System. The RadPRO FM1 has a high-speed generator and digital imaging system designed to reduce exposure time and improve productivity, making it ideal for a demanding diagnostic imaging environment. The floor-mounted tubestand has 9-foot rails and a telescoping tube arm. The manual collimator with laser light also comes with digital display of SID and tube angle, as well as an optional tomography feature (sold separately).
