Canon U.S.A. Inc., based in Melville, N.Y., joined with Virtual Imaging Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., to announce that Canon Inc. has refreshed its lineup of CXDI digital radiography detectors to provide healthcare professionals with beneficial features to help streamline their digital x-ray process. Specifically, the company has released the CXDI-710C, CXDI-810C ,and CXDI-410C wireless detectors—lightweight1 and IPX7 rated2 devices that feature limited onboard image storage capability when operated in Standalone Mode3 and an ergonomic detector design.

“Canon Inc. has a storied history of imaging excellence and this reputation is maintained throughout our entire product portfolio, including our diagnostic imaging devices,” says Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager of the healthcare solutions division in the business imaging solutions group at Canon U.S.A. Inc. and president of 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. 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 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 a “ready” button located directly on the detector or on an optional status indicator. Furthermore, a charger allows for simultaneous charging of up to two batteries at a time to help operators have backup batteries on hand when needed.

Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging have also announced the release 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.
