Canon U.S.A. Expands Its Line Of Digital Radiography Offerings With The Introduction Of The Canon CXDI-60g Portable Digital Radiography System


Canon’s Latest Portable and Compact DR Imaging System Offers Outstanding Diagnostic Imaging Quality and Versatility in a New Convenient Size

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., July 2008 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging technologies, today announced the expansion of its line of digital radiography (DR) systems with the introduction of the Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector. Canon’s ninth-generation flat panel detector extends DR beyond traditional applications to include room-to-room installations, mobile X-ray systems and more.

The Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector succeeds the Company’s popular CXDI-31, the world’s first portable cassette-type DR system, introduced in September 2001. Offering a more ergonomic and portable form than its predecessor, the CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector realizes a new level of freedom and immediacy for diagnosis in the X-ray room and beyond. Thin, lightweight and robust, the CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector offers true portability and flexibility in high-quality DR. Added benefits include low power consumption and a detachable sensor cable for convenient maintenance and installation. The model’s detachable sensor cable, which provides power to the unit and transfers data, enables easy room-to-room installation from multiple locations such as the patient’s bedside or wheelchair, trauma or ICU (with an optional power box and PC) and fits right into most neo-natal incubator trays.

“Backed by Canon’s strong optical and imaging heritage, the Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector offers outstanding image quality and superb DR versatility in a portable flat panel solution,” said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. “The Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector provides a variety of configuration options to help fit the exact requirements of a facility or practice, while delivering high-quality images with minimal X-ray exposure to patients. It’s the ideal size for orthopedic departments, trauma, neonatal and mobile X-ray systems that would benefit from easy handling and portability.”

Weighing just 5.9 pounds and measuring less than an inch thick, the lightweight and slim-body Canon CXDI-60G Portable Flat Panel Detector offers an effective imaging area of 9 x 11 inches, accommodating a diverse range of applications, including the X-raying of hands, elbows, feet and knees, among the most common orthopedic examinations. Enabling X-ray images to be confirmed on an optional preview monitor approximately three seconds after exposure, the system contributes to timely and effective patient care.

Additionally, Canon’s proprietary control software, which supports enhanced image-processing performance, contributes to increased diagnostic accuracy by making possible X-ray images optimized for the area being examined. Images can be transmitted almost immediately over the hospital network to other workstations and printers, and can be archived for fast and easy data sharing. Canon DR technology provides speed, efficiency, and a streamlined workflow to meet diverse needs, including support for off-site diagnosis and emergency care.
