At the 2016 Association of Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2016 conference, Canon USA and Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon, displayed a variety of digital radiography (DR) systems.
At the conference, which ran from July 31 to August 3, attendees learned about a DR Tablet Solution from Virtual Imaging that includes the choice of a Canon wireless CXDI Digital Radiography System. This system, which can help facilities transition to DR in a cost-effective manner, also includes the CXDI Control Software NE with its new scatter correction feature.
The company’s scatter correction—or grid-free imaging feature—was presented for the first time at AHRA 2016. With this capability, technologists won’t need to use an anti-scatter grid during some types of x-ray examinations; that means less work for technologists and allows for more comfortable positioning for patients.
Also on display was Virtual Imaging’s product suite. One of these products is the RadPRO Omnera 400T manual-positioning DR system, which is made of aircraft aluminum and can support a 650-pound patient load.
The Virtual Imaging solution suite also includes the RadPRO 40kW Flex Plus digital x-ray system, which allows users to do routine imaging tasks from the mobile device; that means users won’t need to access health care information systems from a dedicated workstation. In addition, the RadPRO Delinia 200 digital x-ray acquisition cart was on display. With this cart, health care facilities can share detectors among different departments.
