Canon launches three new Digital Radiography detectors

LONDON, September 5, 2011 – Canon, world-leader in imaging solutions has announced the availability of three new additions to its flat panel Digital Radiography (DR) detector range, extending the mobility, versatility and high-resolution diagnostic imaging capabilities available to medical institutions.


Each of the new Canon DR detectors has an improved resolution of 125 micron (μm) and an increased level of sensitivity to deliver higher image quality with a lower dose. They have been designed to deliver on the promises of improved portability and ease of use for the benefit of users, as well as convenience and improved imaging capabilities that directly benefit the patient.

Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) System

As Canon's first compact wireless DR system, the CXDI-80C Wireless builds on the success of Canon's renowned CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, while achieving reductions in size and weight. Combining versatility, very high image quality and very high sensitivity in a more convenient and compact size, the CXDI-80C Wireless is a small area detector that delivers added convenience and freedom during diagnostic examinations.

With its lightweight but robust design and an imaging area of 27 x 35cm, which is similar in size to a conventional imaging cassette, the CXDI-80C Wireless is ideal for extremity imaging and has the added benefit that it can fit into an incubator X-ray cassette tray in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU). When the CXDI-80C Wireless is used with the CXDI-70C Wireless DR system, the combination of advanced wireless DR detectors cover all high quality imaging requirements in low dose general radiography, including imaging of the skull, chest, abdomen and extremities.

Canon CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Systems

With their new glass substrate, impressive image quality and portability, the new Canon CXDI-501 series DR detectors allow radiographers to deliver efficient diagnosis and high quality patient care, with the added convenience that low detector weight and super-slim design brings. 

Versatility is boosted to new heights as the Canon CXD-501 series detectors not only include a detachable cable but can also fit into most existing bucky cassette trays. The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR systems feature a 35 x 43cm imaging area and each weigh 3.1 kilograms. Boasting exceptional X-ray photon conversion efficiency, the CXDI-501 series detectors also incorporate a high quality 9.5 megapixel Canon LANMIT image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125  μm and are available with either a Caesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator (CXDI-501C) or Gadolinium Oxysulphide (GOS) scintillator (CXDI-501G).

The CXDI-501 DR system produces ultra-fast image output, allowing radiographers and medical personnel to view an image just three seconds after X-ray exposure. The latest Canon CXDI-NE imaging software, also supplied, helps users to streamline workflow by reducing the number of operational steps required to complete a patient examination to the absolute minimum, automating many actions and presenting information in a clear and concise manner.

The CXDI-501C/G and the CXDI-80C Wireless detectors will be available in the fourth quarter of 2011.
