Canon Rolls Out Three New Portable, Compact DR Systems

Canon CXDI-55G Multipurpose Portable Flat Panel Detector

August 10, 2009 – Canon U.S.A. Inc. debuted three new digital radiography (DR) systems – the Canon CXDI-55G Multipurpose Portable Flat Panel Detector, the Canon CXDI-55C Premium Portable Flat Panel Detector and the Canon CXDI-60C Compact Portable Flat Panel Detector - at the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) 2009 Annual Meeting and Exposition at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas (August 10th – 12th).

In addition to the new offerings and current line-up of DR systems and solutions, Canon will showcase the Canon imagePRESS C1+ printing solution in the Canon booth (409).
The Canon CXDI-55G and CXDI-55C flat panel detectors are the thinnest flat panel detectors the company has offered to date, just 0.6 inches thick, the same thickness as a standard film cassette. Offering an effective imaging area of 14 x 17 inches, both models accommodate a wide variety of locations including skull, spine, chest, abdomen, and extremity examination. Weighing just 7.5 pounds, the Canon CXDI-55G and CXDI-55C flat panel detectors are light enough for use in trauma centers and intensive care units (ICUs), reportedly simple to grip and handle so that both the patient and X-ray technician can hold it in place during image capture.
 
The Canon CXDI-60C LANMIT detector technology acquires, according to the manufacturer, high-quality diagnostic images with minimal X-ray exposure to patients, making it an ideal device for pediatric and orthopedic applications. Thin, lightweight and robust weighing only 5.5 pounds and less than an inch think (0.9 inches), the Canon CXDI-60C flat panel detector offers an effective imaging area of 9 x 11 inches. Equipped with a smooth carrying handle, the Canon CXDI-60C flat panel detector allows for easy handling, even by the patient, if necessary. A detachable sensor cable enables 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-55G, CXDI-55C, and CXDI-60C flat panel detectors all feature a detachable sensor cable for time effective transport and simple installation. The detachable sensor cable provides power to the unit and transfers data, and X-ray images can be confirmed on an optional preview monitor virtually immediately after exposure. If another exposure is required, the detector will be ready in seconds due to a fast refresh cycle.
