Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging Demonstrate Productivity-Enhancing, High-Quality Digital Radiography Solutions at AHRA 2015

Canon Inc. Reaches Significant Healthcare Industry Landmark with Sale of 30,000 Digital Radiology Detectors1

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 20, 2015 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and Virtual Imaging, Inc. today announced they will showcase their lineup of digital radiography (DR) solutions, including the RadPRO2 radiology solutions at the 2015 American Healthcare Radiology Administrators Exposition (AHRA) at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas (Booth # 619), July 20 - 22, 2015. Committed to providing healthcare organizations consistent and high-quality imaging solutions while utilizing technology breakthroughs to help reduce patient X-ray dose and improve productivity, Canon and Virtual Imaging will present a variety of digital radiography solutions designed to provide healthcare professionals cost-effective, productivity-enhancing solutions.

In addition to exhibiting the newest RadPRO radiology solutions, Canon U.S.A. will acknowledge another major milestone, as its parent company, Canon Inc., has reached 30,000 global sales of digital radiology (DR) detectors. This is another benchmark for the company, which entered the market in 1998 with the world's first digital radiography system that featured a proprietary-developed X-ray image sensor and continues to be at the forefront of developing DR solutions.

"Canon and Virtual Imaging are focused on providing innovative solutions that meet the individual needs of our customers and can help accelerate exams," said Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. and president, Virtual Imaging, Inc. "We look forward to demonstrating at this year's AHRA how our high-quality imaging solutions are cost-effective and can be used to help maintain effective workflows."

Digital Radiography on Demand

Attendees will learn how Canon DR capabilities can be shared among rooms with the RadPRO DELINIA 200 Digital X-ray Acquisition Cart, which transports the Canon detectors featuring auto-detection mode. The detectors work with existing installed X-ray generators or mobile system generators. The DELINIA cart, which was designed to help increase productivity, comes equipped with a choice of Canon CXDI-701C/801C/401C Wireless Detectors designed to deliver high-resolution imaging with a low X-ray dose.

In addition, the Company will be displaying RadPRO DR overhead radiology room and mobile solutions.

Overhead Radiographic System Designed to Help Imaging Departments Accelerate Exams

The RadPRO OMNERA 400T Digital Radiographic System incorporates a lightweight, rugged construction with tube-mounted 10-inch touch screen and tight integration with certain Canon CXDI digital detectors, which are sold separately. This manual positioning system provides servo tracking to both the wall stand and table to provide precision positioning quickly and easily. Designed to help healthcare professionals meet the challenges of demanding imaging departments and help create an efficient workflow to increase patient throughput, the RadPRO OMNERA 400T System can be a "workhorse" for hospitals, imaging centers and clinics.

Mobile Solution for Streamlined Workflows

Healthcare providers can maximize resources and simplify workflows through the use of a comprehensive RadPRO mobile and portable radiology solution. With its compact and easy-to-maneuver design, the RadPRO 40kW Digital Mobile X-ray System provides the flexibility to bring the radiography room to the patient and allow administrators to maximize office space by reducing the need to have dedicated rooms for specific procedures. The Enhanced Workflow Package helps technologists complete routine tasks from the patient's bedside without having to access a HIS/RIS from a dedicated workstation.
