MELVILLE, N.Y., April 24, 2018 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced that it will be on-site for the ATA18 Annual Conference and Expo, to be held from April 29 to May 1 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. According to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), host of the event, ATA18 is focused on new ways to improve healthcare delivery and is expected to be attended by a variety of healthcare professionals and technology experts. Canon U.S.A. will take this opportunity to showcase the capabilities of Canon eye screening technology in booth #2116.  

The focal point of Canon U.S.A.’s presence at the show will be the CR-2 PLUS AF Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera and imageSPECTRUM Image Management System software, an intuitive software solution that is sold separately, offering image management and portability to help improve workflow.1 Utilizing advanced Canon EOS optics and CMOS image-capture technology, the CR-2 PLUS AF camera can  help healthcare professionals capture ultra-high resolution images efficiently with a customized 20.2 megapixel digital camera. Through the ease of pushing a button, users can switch between auto and manual focusing for ultimate control and ease-of-use. The Auto Capture function determines the appropriate moment to capture an image by analyzing when exposure and focus are ideal. The CR-2 PLUS AF camera includes a non-invasive Fundus Autofluorescence imaging mode that provides the reviewer with the ability to quickly assess the condition of the RPE layer.

The Canon U.S.A. imageSPECTRUM software includes a set of digital RGB filters to assist with the viewing of suspect pathologies and an opacity suppression tool to help provide clear images of the eye when cataracts are involved.  By using the CR-2 PLUS AF retinal camera in tandem with the imageSPECTRUM software, healthcare professionals using either the Windows® 7 with SQL 2012 or Windows 10 with SQL 2016 operating system can perform retinal screenings and then quickly transmit the images to doctors' offices thousands of miles away, both domestic and abroad2, to assist in making a diagnosis.
