Canon U.S.A. and Virtual Imaging Showcase RadPRO® Digital Radiographic Systems at Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting
CHICAGO, IL, November 21, 2018 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and Virtual Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A.. announce today that they will showcase their lines of radiology offerings at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 104th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, from November 25-30, 2018. Guests to South Hall, booth #1938 will have the opportunity to experience an array of RadPRO radiology solutions, which function on the Windows® 10 Operating System.
“We are pleased to share the latest innovations from Canon and Virtual Imaging with healthcare providers at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in Chicago,” said Tsuneo Imai, Vice President and General Manager, Healthcare Solutions, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. and President, Virtual Imaging, Inc. “Precision, intuitive design and efficient workflow are critical to providing the best options for care, and Canon and Virtual Imaging keep these needs top of mind during the development of their products and services.”
Ideal for radiology professionals who require proven technologies to aid performance, productivity and workflow, the RadPRO¹ Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System will be on display. The System features a multi-touch supported monitor that when used with CXDI Control Software NE enables more intuitive touch operations, such as zoom, pan, double-tap zoom, WW/WL adjustment, laterality marker dragging and list scrolling – all of which are possible by using the operator’s fingers in place of keyboard or mouse activity.
Additional system features include an LED status indicator light that assists the end user in confirming the system status, a CXDI Wireless Detector battery charger affixed to the mobile system, and the patented Enhanced Workflow Package and wireless Distributed Antenna System (DAS).
Attendees can also see and learn about the RadPRO OMNERA® 400A Auto-Positioning Digital Radiographic System. This system enables fast and effortless precision positioning thanks to its fully motorized auto-positioning that provides servo tracking to both the wall stand and table. An easy to operate overhead tube crane with 10-inch, touch-screen display helps make exams as simple as selecting a protocol and pressing a control. Additional features include detector charging in wall stand and table, and optional automatic stitching capability.
Additional products and systems on display include:
- DR Tablet Solution helps usher in the move to digital radiography. It consists of a tablet² and choice of a CXDI Wireless Digital Radiography System which includes CXDI Control Software NE. The auto-detection mode of the detector allows for X-rays to be automatically detected at exposure without the use of a typical generator interface and cables.
- RadPRO URS Universal Radiography System provides motorized movements that can be controlled from three different locations for more operator flexibility. It has a small footprint for space-conscious facilities and its superb flexibility makes it easy and cost-effective to install and use without compromising imaging capability.
- RadPRO FM Floor-Mounted Radiography System offers a floor-mounted tube stand, 4-way float table, and chest stand, making it a robust solution ideal for most medical imaging applications. The freestanding tube stand requires no wall or ceiling supports for fast installation.
- CXDI-710C/810C/410C Wireless Digital Radiography Systems deliver high-resolution images at fast preview times, resulting in low radiation dose to the patient.
