"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."
The CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C Wireless Detectors are designed to provide the versatility needed to meet the needs of the radiography community. Key features include:
Lightweight and Ergonomic Design
Utilizing strong carbon fiber, the new Canon detectors are among the lightest weight detectors currently available and are designed with form and function in mind to help improve user and patient experience. Despite being lightweight, the carbon fiber chassis and frame provide high performance and high durability, tested for the rigors of demanding daily use.
The sleek, tough and ergonomically sculpted new design includes the following features to facilitate the user and patient experience. The new devices are designed to be comfortable to hold and easy to handle due to the lightweight and ergonomic handgrips sculpted into the detector. Smooth rounded corners allow for easy, comfortable positioning for patients and technologists.
The CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C and CXDI-410C Wireless Detectors feature a "Ready" function to be used when working with multiple detectors in a single environment. With this function, a specific detector can 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 (sold separately). The new CXDI detectors are also equipped with limited, temporary on-board image storage capability when operated in Standalone Mode.3
Flexible Charging Capabilities
Included with the CXDI-710C/810C/410C Wireless Detectors is a charger that allows for simultaneous charging of up to two batteries at a time to help operators have backup batteries on-hand when needed. An optional docking station (sold separately) allows for detector check-in, rapid battery charging while in detector and transfer of images from the detector taken in Standalone Mode.3
Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging have also announced the release by Canon Inc. of CXDI Control Software NE Version 2.16, made exclusively for use with CXDI Digital Detectors to help optimize workflow and reduce steps needed to complete exams.
