At just 0.6 inches thick and weighing 7.5 lbs, the Canon brand CXDI-55G Digital Radiography System is a versatile lightweight portable detector that can help improve the workflow of the x-ray room. Offering an effective imaging area of 14 x 17 inches, the portability of the CXDI-55G DR System accommodates a wide variety of studies such as wheelchair chest, decubitus views, weight-bearing and much more. The CXDI-55G portable flat panel detector can be utilized for a variety of x-ray applications, including trauma centers, ICUs, pediatrics and orthopedics. The simple-to-grip handle design allows both the patient and X-ray technician to comfortably hold the detector in place during image capture. The CXDI-55G flat panel detector also features a detachable sensor cable for time-effective transport and simple installation. 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. The CXDI-55G flat panel detector offers extensive workflow capabilities and seamless data transfer to any DICOM1 device, PACS and/or DICOM Printer for efficient data management, printing, archiving and remote viewing of images. Such workflow efficiency can mean less wait-time for patients as well as higher patient throughput and less of a burden on staff.
