Canon has released a new digital radiography sensor with wireless capabilities that can be used on aging X-ray machines to make them run like new.
The new Canon CXDI-40G COMPACT Digital Radiography System is equipped with a large image sensor and high-quality capabilities similar to the CXDI-40EG but in minimal housing. The CXDI-40G COMPACT DR System is equipped with a large 17 X 17-inch imaging area that enables 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.
The CXDI-40G COMPACT DR System can be retrofitted into a range of radiography devices including upright stands, RF tables, and Bucky units. Easy installation is possible into widely-used Bucky units of existing facilities which can contribute to significant cost savings. The CXDI-40G COMPACT DR System also offers multiple applications, which allows for efficient capture of high-resolution (7.2 million pixels) radiological images in a timely manner to help meet facilities general radiographic needs.
Additionally, Canon’s proprietary control software, which supports superb image-processing performance, contributes to physicians’ diagnostic accuracy by making possible X-ray images that enhance 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.
