Canon U.S.A. Debuts Its Newest Mydriatic Digital Retinal Camera


Strengthening its position as a leading provider of total digital imaging and workflow management solutions for eyecare professionals, Canon U.S.A, Inc., today announced the introduction of the Canon CF-1 Digital Retinal Camera.

Featuring a redesigned optical system that achieves high resolution diagnostic images and offers outstanding operability, the CF-1 enables a 50-degree angle of view, providing detailed retinal images and is equipped with three imaging modes: color, fluorescein angiography and red-free. When attached to a Canon EOS 30D Digital SLR Camera (sold separately), which provides up to 8.2 million pixels, the CF-1 is capable of delivering clear and detailed diagnostic images for immediate review.

“Canon strives to provide ophthalmologists and optometrists with the latest digital imaging technology, allowing doctors to continue to provide comprehensive, high-end care to their patients, as well as helping them to efficiently operate their practices,” said Tsuneo Imai, director and general manager, Canon Medical Systems. “The CF-1 Digital Retinal Camera, coupled with our Retinal Imaging Control Software, can play a significant role in improving the efficiency of eye care exams and the management of patient data and images.”

The CF-1 provides impressive flexibility with smooth wide-range pan and tilt movements for exceptional ease of use. The ergonomic, streamlined design of the CF-1 achieves improved operation by motorizing procedures usually performed by hand, such as changing filters and adjusting the chin rest.

All CF-1 functions are integrated into a single tabletop unit with a power supply built directly into the base. The new compact design allows for closer interaction with the patient and easier access to the patient’s eyes.

The CF-1 system includes Retinal Imaging Control Software; which facilitates comprehensive study management and image capture control at the operator’s finger tips, in an intuitive graphical interface that is simple and straightforward to use. This newly developed PC-based software package provides quick, easy input and access to information and images required. The DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) standard-compliant network interface enables easy integration with existing image management systems and allows connection to a variety of network configurations such as LAN or WAN and PACS communication.
