DALLAS, August 12, 2011 – Setting new milestones in its digital radiography systems, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, will preview the CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) system, along with the CXDI-501 DR systems2 at the 2011 American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) Exposition (August 14 - 17). In addition to the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system and CXDI-501 DR systems, medical professionals can view the Company's complete DR medical imaging solutions at the Canon booth (#702).

"In the current medical market, the main objective when purchasing digital radiography equipment is to offer low-dose radiation without sacrificing image quality," said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. "The addition of the CXDI-80C Wireless and CXDI-501 DR systems to our DR portfolio demonstrates Canon's commitment to meeting the demands of the medical industry by developing products to facilitate high-quality health care performance."

Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) System
As Canon's first compact wireless DR system, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system builds on the success of Canon's renowned CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, while achieving reductions in size and weight. With great operability and freedom in diagnostic exams, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system features a lightweight body design with an imaging area of 11 x 14-inch size, which is equivalent to a conventional 10 x 12-inch imaging cassette. The CXDI-80C Wireless DR system weighs 5.5 pounds and incorporates a 6.1-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, producing high-quality images with low X-ray exposure. The CXDI-80C Wireless DR System also produces up to 140 images on a fully charged battery, making it easy to obtain the optimal image for proper diagnosis.

Providing excellent portability, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system can also fit into an incubator tray or isolette, which is ideal for orthopedics practice or Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). When used together with the CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR system fully supports the imaging of various body regions, including the head and chest area, abdomen and extremities.


Canon CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Systems
With its new glass substrate, impressive image quality and portability, the CXDI-501 series provides medical practitioners with the means to deliver efficient diagnosis and quality patient care. Thanks to the new, detachable cable and compatible cassette, the Canon CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems are exceptionally versatile, satisfying both portability and easy installation for most existing Bucky trays. The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems feature 14 x 17-inch imaging area and each weighs less than 7 pounds. Boasting exceptional light-conversion efficiency, the CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems also incorporate a high-quality, 9.5-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and offer a Cesium Iodide (CsI) or Gadolinium Oxysulfide scintillator, respectively. For high-quality performance, the CXDI-501 DR systems provide fast exam output, allowing medical practitioners to preview an image in three seconds after exposure. The CXDI-501 DR systems include CXDI Control Software NE, which helps optimize workflow by reducing the number of operational steps, while supporting multiple patient studies.
