December 1, 2020 — X-ray is often the first imaging tool used in busy facilities where efficiency is a top priority – along with patient care. With the launch of Canon Medical Systems USA Inc.’s all-new OMNERA 500A Digital Radiography System, facilities now have access to a system that offers heightened productivity for fast-paced imaging departments so that technologists can focus on their patients.
The FDA 510(k)-cleared OMNERA 500A offers outstanding performance and intelligent automation, with features that put throughput and patient safety at top priority, including:
- Enhanced productivity capabilities with quiet and smooth auto-positioning technology, auto-tracking of the tube and detector, synchronization of the tilting wall stand, as well as detector charging in the table and wall stand.
- A patient-centric design with adjustable patient positioning and support components, as well as soft, soothing lighting.
- Improved operator ergonomics with strategically placed system controls on the overhead tube crane (OTC), plus the flexibility of the table's working height and choice of operating functions by either table-side/wall-side controls or foot controls. Infection control enhancements like a specially designed glass overlay OTC display, free of edges to enable seamless cleaning and disinfection.
“Today’s hospitals are challenged with productivity and workflow demands like never before, and it’s imperative that their x-ray systems are able to perform seamlessly so that they can focus on their patients,” said Jay Aboujaoude, managing director, X-Ray Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “The OMNERA 500A meets that need so that technologists can produce images with exceptional image quality, made possible with the unparalleled Canon CXDI detector technology that is at the heart of the system.”
