Canon and Virtual Imaging to Unveil Healthcare Technologies and Showcase Digital Radiography Solutions at AHRA 2016
MELVILLE, N.Y., July 28, 2016 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and Virtual Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., will feature a lineup of digital radiography (DR) solutions at the 2016 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) show from July 31 to August 3, 2016 at The Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville. Visitors to the Canon booth (#622) will experience exciting new Canon and Virtual Imaging radiology solutions and tools, including a DR Tablet Solution from Virtual Imaging, which comes with a tablet and choice of a Canon wireless CXDI Digital Radiography System. The solution also includes the CXDI Control Software NE with its new scatter correction feature. Additionally, visitors will be able to experience an array of Virtual Imaging's DR product lineup, including RadPRO® radiology solutions1.
New technologies and features highlighted in this year's booth will include:
DR Tablet Solution
Helping healthcare facilities make the move to DR in a cost-effective and efficient way, this solution is comprised of a rugged tablet2 and a choice of Canon wireless CXDI Digital Radiography System which includes CXDI Control Software NE. The CXDI Control Software NE's auto-detection mode allows the CXDI detector to automatically detect X-rays at exposure without the use of a typical X-ray generator interface. The tablet's unique Wi-Fi® capability allows users to acquire images from the detector while previous images are simultaneously sent to PACs.
CXDI Control Software NE with Scatter Correction (Grid-free Imaging)
New at this year's exposition is the Scatter Correction (grid-free imaging) feature of CXDI Control Software NE. Scatter Correction eliminates the need to use an anti-scatter grid during certain types of X-ray examinations, which lightens the load for technologists and makes positioning more comfortable for patients, as compared to using the detector with a grid. The Scatter Correction feature is designed to help radiology staff to work efficiently without the need to use a grid for certain types of x-ray examinations. Eliminating the need to align the grid can help shorten exam times and increase productivity.
Other solutions featured in the Canon booth will include:
RadPRO OMNERA® 400T Manual-Positioning Digital Radiographic System
A true "workhorse" in the radiography room, this high-quality, manual positioning system is constructed from rugged aircraft aluminum and has the ability to support a 650-pound patient load. Helping provide the high throughput needed in high-volume hospital imaging departments, this elevating six-way table's lightweight design can help reduce the physical demands placed on radiography technologists, whether in the trauma room or in radiography.
RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System
Featuring the telescopic column and fast processing times which make it easy to capture high-quality diagnostic images, this newly enhanced digital X-ray system includes an Enhanced Workflow Package intended to help healthcare professionals save time by customizing workflow with existing HIS/RIS and removing unnecessary steps. This new feature also allows users to complete routine imaging tasks from the mobile device, eliminating the need to access healthcare information systems from a dedicated workstation.
RadPRO DELINIA® 200 Digital X-Ray Acquisition Cart
Equipped with a computer, access point, touch-screen monitor, detector holder, and a choice of the Canon CXDI-701C, 801C or 401C Wireless Digital Radiography Detector which includes CXDI Control Software NE, the RadPRO DELINIA® 200 Digital X-ray Acquisition Cart allows for easy sharing of detectors among multiple areas of one healthcare facility, such as the radiography room, trauma room, OR and ER. The CXDI Control Software NE's auto-detection mode allows the CXDI detector to automatically detect X-rays at exposure without the use of a typical X-ray generator interface. The detectors are designed to work with currently installed X-ray generators or mobile generators, which can help improve cost-efficiency.
In addition to the products listed above, Virtual Imaging will also showcase its service programs such as Protection Plus3. This program provides unlimited repairs and replacements4 as well as loaner systems during repair times for eligible Canon detectors purchased from Virtual Imaging and its authorized dealers. Designed for busy radiologists, the Protection Plus Program is convenient, cost-effective and reduces downtime on-site.
