Planning for its construction began in 1982; construction began in 1985, and the center opened on June 18, 1988. , May 15 - 18.
"At the show, attendees can see how Canon DR systems and solutions can help to reduce examination times, increase patient throughput and contribute to substantial cost and labor savings," said Tsuneo Imai, senior director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "Canon's strong optical and imaging heritage has allowed us to be at the forefront of pioneering DR technologies, changing the way medical imaging is being done in hospitals and clinical environments."
Canon DR systems and solutions on display at SIIM 2008 (booth # 809) will include:
* Portable DR Systems - The Canon CXDI-50G Portable DR system offers a thin, light-weight design and has a large imaging area of 14 X 17 inches. When combined with a compatible mobile unit, the CXDI-50G can bring digital radiography directly to the patient's bedside. Designed for diverse applications, the compact design is a practical solution for a wide range of room applications that can be difficult to perform with fixed devices. The CXDI-50G will be shown integrated with the RadPro 4kW Portable Digital X-Ray System, making it appropriate for bedside or post-operative procedures.
* Canon DR Image Viewer See viewer. Software - Canon helps to improve workflow efficiency of digital radiography systems with an intuitive, user-friendly interface. Canon DR images can be manipulated without compromising throughput, thus assisting the health care provider's efficiency in delivering patient care. This economical and fully scalable solution provides the user with pixel-to-pixel display of individual or multiple high-resolution Canon DR images. The Canon DR Image Viewer software, which features pan, zoom and measurement tools such as cobb angles, can save images to a CD and send images to a Windows-based desktop printer or a DICOM (medical, standard) DICOM - (From Digital Imaging and COmmunications in Medicine) A standard developed by ACR-NEMA (American College of Radiology - National Electrical Manufacturer's Association) for communications between medical imaging devices. * Standard-compliant network device. In addition, its optional modules, including stitching and implant matching for surgical templating applications, make it ideal for scoliosis Scoliosis Definition
