Canon Rolls Out Portable DR

Canon U.S.A. Inc. has expanded its line of digital radiography (DR) systems with the introduction of the Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector, the company’s ninth-generation flat panel detector, which now includes room-to-room installations, mobile X-ray systems and more.

The Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector succeeds the Company’s popular CXDI-31, a portable cassette-type DR system, introduced in September 2001. Offering a more ergonomic and portable form than its predecessor, the CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector realizes a new level of freedom and immediacy for diagnosis in the X-ray room and beyond. Thin, lightweight and robust, the CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector offers true portability and flexibility in high-quality DR. 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, is designed to enable 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 is said to fit into most neo-natal incubator trays.

Weighing just 5.9 pounds and measuring less than an inch thick, the lightweight and slim-body Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector offers an effective imaging area of 9 x 11 inches, accommodating a diverse range of applications, including the X-raying of hands, elbows, feet and knees, among the most common orthopedic examinations. Enabling X-ray images to be confirmed on an optional preview monitor approximately three seconds after exposure.

Additionally, Canon’s proprietary control software reportedly optimizes X-ray images for the area being examined. Images can be transmitted almost immediately over the hospital network to other workstations and printers, and can be archived for data sharing.
