Canon U.S.A. Achieves Milestone With The Installation Of Its 2,000TH Digital Radiography System And Celebrates Over 5,000 Installations Globaly By The Canon Family Of Companies


Achieving a significant milestone in its illustrious history, Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced the installation of its 2,000th digital radiography (DR) system, also marking more than 5,000 DR system installations worldwide by the Canon family of companies. This celebrated installation took place at a large healthcare provider in Northern California.

Canon was approached with an immediate need to increase workflow productivity and enhance workplace ergonomics, while only having limited downtime. As a result of installing the Canon CXDI-40EG and CXDI-50G DR Systems, the facility was able to decrease patient wait and exam times because of the virtually instantaneous ability to view images, as well as improve workplace ergonomics for its staff by limiting lifting and reaching motions. Additionally, the office needed to shut down for only a relatively short time to install the equipment and train technologists.

“The new Canon DR system will help to increase productivity and improve image processing efficiencies at the facility,” said Tsuneo Imai, director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The installation of the Canon CXDI-40EG and CXDI-50G DR systems is expected to provide the health care provider with the ability to increase the number and types of exams given at its facility.”

The flexibility of the Canon DR solutions allows for either upgrading existing equipment with Canon DR technology or including Canon DR systems as part of a completely new system. The Canon CXDI-40EG General DR system provides a large imaging area of 17 x 17 inches, and lets users capture desired anatomical views for both large and small format X-rays in portrait or landscape orientation without having to rotate the detector unit. This system can retrofit onto almost any new or existing bucky table, upright tilting wall stand, universal or ceiling suspended multi-positioning unit.

Canon was the first in the industry to deliver a portable DR system in 2001. One of its newest portable DR systems - the Canon CXDI-50G DR system - is a lightweight, large imaging area (17 x 14 inches) DR system designed for diverse applications, including trauma and bedside exams.
