Products that will be featured within the Canon and Virtual Imaging booth include:
RadPRO®1 Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System
This system provides a user-friendly experience, as seen through its multi-touch supported display that enables intuitive finger movement operations such as zoom, pan, and list scrolling when used with CXDI Control Software NE², as well as the single-click Multiple Image Processing and Advanced Edge Enhancement functions for viewing of PICC lines and catheters. The Enhanced Workflow Package, which enables exams to be completed at bedside without the need of a separate workstation, and the wireless Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which can increase wireless range up to 40% over single point access systems, are both unique, patented items that are beneficial in addressing productivity and workflow demands.
DR Tablet Solution
Built for customers continuing to make the move to digital radiography from analog technology, this solution, which is offered by Virtual Imaging, includes a tablet3 and choice of CXDI wireless detector that includes CXDI Control Software NE. The auto-detection mode of the detector allows X-rays to be automatically detected at exposure without the need for a typical generator interface.
Single Shot Long-Length Imaging
The Single Shot Long-Length Imaging feature of CXDI Control Software NE Version 2.17 stitches long length images into a single image using multiple compatible CXDI detectors4, a single x-ray exposure and the automatic stitching capability of the CXDI Software.
This new software feature, when used with certain CXDI wireless detectors4 and a specially configured stand5, offers an efficient long-length imaging workflow for whole spine or long leg exams without the need for multiple x-ray exposures. The detectors can be removed from the stand and used with other compatible systems as a cost-effective investment consideration.
