Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging Showcase New Product and Service Offering
MELVILLE, N.Y., November 25, 2015 — Medical professionals require solutions that provide low x-ray dose to the patient with real-life application. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and Virtual Imaging, Inc., a Canon U.S.A., Company, will feature their complete lineup of digital radiography (DR) solutions at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting on November 29 to December 4, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Located in the South Hall, Booth #2539, North Building, visitors to the booth will be part of exciting benchmarks, including the addition of a new mobile device to Virtual Imaging RadPRO1 Mobile Digital X-ray System product family powered by Canon DR technology.
Visitors to the Canon booth will be the first to see how the companies’ technology, including a mobile device ideal for military environments, can help medical professionals work in challenging hospital environments, as well as how these products can help military and first responders make quick, confident diagnoses in the field. To help provide customers with peace-of-mind and savings, product experts will be available to explain the new Protection Plus Program. The Program provides unlimited repairs and replacements2 as well as loaner systems during repair times for eligible Canon detectors purchased from Virtual Imaging and its authorized dealers. Designed for today’s busy radiologists, the Protection Plus Program3 is convenient, cost-effective and reduces downtime on-site.
“Since launching the world’s first digital radiography system, the CXDI-11 detector, in 1997, Canon Inc. has been dedicated to providing radiologists with the technology they need to meet the demands of the industry,” said Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., and president, Virtual Imaging, Inc. “Starting in 2016, Canon Inc. will be investing $3 billion annually in R&D, with over eight percent of revenues being reinvested into new technology developments, including healthcare products, to continue bringing new, innovative technologies to the healthcare market."
