Canon U.S.A. Showcases Its Newest Mydriatic Digital Retinal Camera At The American Academy Of Ophthalmology’s Annual Meeting In New Orleans


At the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s (AAO) Annual Meeting, Canon U.S.A., Inc., is showcasing its CF-1 Digital Retinal Camera and imageSPECTRUM Software. The complete Canon line of total digital imaging and workflow management solutions for eyecare professionals can be viewed in Hall H, booth #3713 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans (November 10th – 13th ).

“Whether they are part of a small practice or a busy healthcare facility, Canon strives to provide ophthalmologists with the latest digital imaging technology, helping doctors to provide quality care to their patients, as well as to efficiently operate their practices,” said Tsuneo Imai, director and general manager, Canon Medical Systems. “The CF-1 Digital Retinal Camera, when coupled with our optional imageSPECTRUM Software, can play a significant role in improving the efficiency of eye care exams and the management of patient data and images.”

The Canon CF-1 Digital Retinal Camera, introduced earlier this year, features a redesigned optical system that achieves high-resolution diagnostic images and outstanding operability. When attached to a Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR Camera (sold separately), which provides up to 10.1 million pixels, the CF-1 is capable of delivering clear and detailed diagnostic images for virtually immediate review. The CF-1 offers exceptional ease of use and an ergonomic, streamlined design helps to achieve improved operation by motorizing procedures usually performed by hand. 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.

Canon imageSPECTRUM software facilitates comprehensive study management and image capture control at the operator’s finger tips, through an intuitive graphical interface that is simple and straightforward to use. This newly developed PC-based software package allows for quick, easy input and access to information and images. The DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) Standard-compliant interface enables easy integration with select DICOM modalities* and allows connection to a variety of network configurations such as LAN or WAN.

Canon offers and markets a full line of digital imaging solutions for the ophthalmic world, including Non-Mydriatic and Mydriatic Retinal cameras, full auto-tonometer and full auto-ref keratometers and image management software, all of which will be on display at the show.
