Canon U.S.A., Inc. (Melville, NY, USA) provided a firsthand look at its refreshed lineup of CXDI digital radiography detectors to guests at the annual meeting of RSNA (Radiological Society of North America), held from November 26th through November 30th in Chicago, Illinois.
The company recently launched the CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C wireless detectors with beneficial features to help healthcare professionals streamline their digital X-ray process. The IPX7-rated detectors feature a strong carbon fiber chassis and frame, making them among the lightest weight detectors currently available. The ergonomic handgrips sculpted into the detectors make the devices comfortable to hold and easy to handle, while their smooth rounded corners allow for easy, comfortable positioning for patients and technologists.
Additionally, the new CXDI detectors feature a "Ready" function for use when working with multiple detectors in a single environment, allowing a specific detector to be selected from both the DR modality workstation by simply pressing the "Ready" button located directly on the detector or on an optional status indicator. The detectors are also equipped with limited, temporary on-board image storage capability when operated in standalone mode. The detectors come with a charger which can simultaneously charge up to two batteries at a time along with an optional docking station which allows for detector check-in, rapid battery charging while in detector, and transfer of images from the detector taken in standalone mode.
"Canon Inc. has a storied history of imaging excellence and this reputation is maintained throughout our entire product portfolio, including our diagnostic imaging devices," said Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc., and president, Virtual Imaging, Inc. "This superb quality, combined with the reliability expected from Canon devices, is prevalent in our new wireless detectors. These new devices were designed to help improve the overall experience of the patients and technologists."
