MELVILLE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Canon (News - Alert) U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced it will showcase its line of radiology offerings at the 2014
American Healthcare Radiology Administrators Exposition (AHRA) at
Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, DC, (Booth #
701), from August 11 - 13, 2014. Committed to applying its high-quality
imaging technologies to helping healthcare professionals enhance the
quality of care, increase productivity, and control costs, Canon will
present a variety of digital radiography solutions designed to help
healthcare professionals accelerate exams for a wide variety of patients
and procedures and create more efficient workflows.
In addition to exhibiting its newest radiology solutions, Canon U.S.A.
will celebrate another major milestone, as its parent company, Canon
Inc., has reached 25,000 global unit sales of digital radiology (DR)
detectors. This is another benchmark for the company, which entered the
market in 1997 with the industry's first DR system, the CXDI-11 Digital
Radiography Detector, and continues to be at the forefront of developing
"We recognize that our healthcare customers face increasing challenges
to delivering quality, affordable patient care," said Tsuneo Imai, vice
president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business
Imaging Solutions, Canon U.S.A., Inc. and president, Virtual Imaging,
Inc. "RadPRO digital radiography solutions incorporating Canon
leading-edge imaging technology are designed to deliver high-resolution
imaging with a low X-ray dose to the patient and to support an efficient
and customizable workflow for the imaging department. In addition, we
strive to provide healthcare professionals solutions that offer
flexibility and ease of use to help deliver patient-focused care."
"For example, the new RadPRO1 Delinia 200 Digital X-ray
Acquisition Cart, which we are showing at AHRA as a work in process,
provides an entirely new way for an organization to employ digital
radiology technology. For organizations that have not made the
transition from CR to DR because of cost and possible disruption to
their normal operations, it provides a cost-effective way to acquire DR
capability with minimal installation time. It will deliver high-quality
imaging and can help accelerate exams by providing results within
seconds, using the existing radiography room, without the need for
cabling or special interfacing to perform exams with the latest Canon DR
The Company will be displaying the CXDI-701C Wireless Digital
Radiography (DR) System, the CXDI-801C Wireless DR System, and the new
Canon CXDI-401C Wireless DR System, which provides a high level of
versatility while providing high image quality and rapid results for
large and small anatomical views. This technology is designed to help
practitioners, accelerate exams and maintain productive workflows. These
systems feature an X-ray Auto Detection mode, in which the wireless DR
system can detect X-rays at exposure and shift to image acquisition mode
automatically without the use of a typical generato interface, as well
as additional customer-focused features such as enhanced liquid
intrusion protection, battery charging in detector with the wired
option,* and impact detection. These DR systems are:
CXDI-701C Wireless - imaging area: 14" x 17" (35 cm x 43 cm) ?
CXDI-801C Wireless - imaging area: 11" x 14" (27 cm x 35 cm) ?
CXDI-401C Wireless - imaging area: 17" x 16" (43 cm x 42 cm)?
Overhead Radiographic Systems to Help Imaging Departments Accelerate
Canon U.S.A. will also feature the new RadPRO OMNERA 400 Series Digital
Radiographic Systems that have been designed to help healthcare
professionals meet the challenges of demanding hospital imaging
departments and help create an efficient workflow to increase patient
throughput. The RadPRO OMNERA 400A Auto-Positioning Digital Radiographic
System incorporates fully automatic motorized positioning and features
automatic stitching, a tube-mounted 10 inch touch screen, a vertical
wall stand and a table with extended range of motion. It will be
outfitted with certain of Canon's portfolio of CXDI Digital Radiography
detectors. Constructed of rugged crafted aircraft aluminum, the RadPRO
OMNERA 400A System also provides the flexibility and ease of use helpful
to deliver patient focused care.
The RadPRO OMNERA 400T Digital Radiographic System, like the RadPRO
OMNERA 400A System, incorporates a lightweight, rugged construction with
tube-mounted 10 inch touch screen and tight integration with certain
Canon CXDI digital detectors, sold separately. The manual positioning
System provides servo tracking to both the wall stand and table to
provide precision positioning quickly and easily. These digital
radiographic systems provide imaging departments two excellent options
to help create an efficient and flexible workflow with advanced Canon
