Canon‘s new wireless cassette-size digital radiography sensor system, the CXDI-70C, is making an American debut at RSNA 2010. The 510(k) cleared device, profiled by us before, packs standard 14 x 17-inch image area and wireless transfer capabilities:
Weighing less than 8 pounds, the durable CXDI-70C Wireless DR System is easy to handle and has the same dimensions as a standard ISO 4090 film cassette and fits into existing Bucky trays. The 125-micron pixel pitch delivers high resolution images and increased spatial resolution as compared with the Company’s current 160-micron pixel pitch Digital Radiography systems. Depending upon the room in which the CXDI-70C Wireless DR System is used, the power can be managed so potential interference can be reduced and the signal strength may also be calibrated. The CXDI-70C Wireless DR System also incorporates a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, which delivers high-quality images while reducing the X-ray exposure to the patient.
