WASHINGTON -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging technology, will present the CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography System at the Gaylord National Convention Center, August 23rd – 26th (booth #901).

Receiving 510(k) clearance from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 1, the CXDI-70C Wireless DR System is Canon’s first wireless detector, offering more portability to medical practitioners. More than 1,000 medical professionals will have the advantage to view the CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography System along with Canon’s other impressive healthcare equipment.

“The Medical Systems division of Canon U.S.A. is deeply committed in providing healthcare solutions to a variety of medical professionals to help them better diagnose and treat patients,” said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A.

“At the 2010 AHRA show, the presentation of the CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography System demonstrates Canon’s intent to further meet the needs of our customers.” The CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) System Weighing 7.5 pounds, the CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography System, as Canon’s first wireless DR system, features a versatile 14 x 17-inch image area, the same dimensions as an ISO 4090-compliant film cassette and cable-free image transfer, providing medical practitioners with greater device portability and extraordinary image quality.

Building upon the success of the Canon CXDI-55G/55C DR systems, the CXDI-70C Wireless DR System helps deliver fast, reliable high-resolution images. The CXDI-70C Wireless DR System also incorporates a new Canon-developed glass substrate with a pixel pitch of 125 microns. Despite realizing a higher resolution as compared with its current 160-micron pixel pitch DR systems, the new model delivers an increased level of sensitivity. In addition, the unit features a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, which delivers high-quality images while reducing the X-ray exposure to the patient.

Without the use of a sensor cable, the newly developed Canon CXDI-70C Wireless DR System also enables handling similar to current film cassette X-ray systems, resulting in effortless usability and portability. With the development of an easy-to-use, portable DR system, medical practitioners are able to save a significant amount of time during equipment setup versus older machines and spend more time providing quality patient care. The CXDI-70C Wireless DR System is an ideal solution for all of radiography systems, including mobile systems.
