Ergonomic detectors combine with new version of control software to streamline workflow

Canon Showcases New CXDI Digital Radiography Detectors at RSNA 2017

December 6, 2017 — Canon U.S.A. Inc. and Virtual Imaging Inc. recently announced the launch of the CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C wireless digital radiography (DR) detectors to help streamline the digital X-ray process. The recently launched detectors are lightweight and IPX7-rated devices that feature limited on-board image storage capability when operated in Standalone Mode and an ergonomic detector design.

Canon displayed the new DR detectors at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

The CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C Wireless Detectors are designed to provide the versatility needed to meet the needs of the radiography community. Key features include:

Lightweight and ergonomic design

Utilizing strong carbon fiber, the new Canon detectors are among the lightest-weight detectors currently available, according to the company, and are designed with form and function in mind to help improve user and patient experience. Despite being lightweight, the carbon fiber chassis and frame provide high performance and high durability, tested for the rigors of demanding daily use.

The new devices are designed to be comfortable to hold and easy to handle due to the lightweight and ergonomic handgrips sculpted into the detector. Smooth rounded corners allow for easy, comfortable positioning for patients and technologists.

Improved workflow

The CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C Wireless Detectors feature a "Ready" function to be used when working with multiple detectors in a single environment. With this function, a specific detector can be selected from both the DR modality workstation by simply pressing the "Ready" button located directly on the detector or on an optional Status Indicator (sold separately). The new detectors are also equipped with limited, temporary on-board image storage capability when operated in Standalone Mode.

Flexible charging capabilities

Included with the CXDI-710C/810C/410C Wireless Detectors is a charger that allows for simultaneous charging of up to two batteries at a time to help operators have backup batteries on-hand when needed. An optional docking station (sold separately) allows for detector check-in, rapid battery charging while in detector and transfer of images from the detector taken in Standalone Mode.

Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging have also announced the release by Canon Inc. of CXDI Control Software NE Version 2.16, made exclusively for use with CXDI Digital Detectors to help optimize workflow and reduce steps needed to complete exams. Stitching comes standard – up to four images combined into one image.  Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating system (OS) Supported, CXDI Control Software NE also supports the following anti-virus programs: Windows Defender, McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.8, and ESET Endpoint Anti-Virus 6.3. CXDI Control Software NE is IHE and DICOM 3.0-compliant.

At RSNA 2017, Canon announced the company has sold a total of 40,000 digital radiography detectors worldwide. Approximately twenty years ago, Canon Inc. introduced the company’s first digital radiography panel, the CXDI-11, and has brought to market a variety of different models in the decades since.
