Canon U.S.A., Inc. Demonstrates a Wide Array of Digital Radiography Solutions at RSNA 2006 Show in Chicago.

The Newest Canon Portable and Premium DR Systems Bring High Quality, Cost Effective Medical Imaging Innovation to a Broad Range of Applications in Hospital and Clinical Environments

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. -- Canon Medical Systems, a division of Canon U.S.A., Inc., will shine the spotlight on its newest premium digital radiography (DR) systems - the Canon CXDI-50C Portable DR System and Canon CXDI-40EC DR System - at the 2006 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2006), Booth #1352, November 26th - November 30th.

The new Canon CXDI-50C DR system features a 14 X 17 inch image area with the LANMIT 7 (Large Area New-MIS Sensor and TFT) detector technology, and delivers high-quality diagnostic images efficiently with minimal X-ray exposure to patients, making it ideal for pediatric and orthopedic use, while the new Canon CXDI-40EC DR system is equipped with a large 17 X 17 inch imaging area for capturing X-ray images, large and small, without the need to adjust detector orientation.

Canon will also demonstrate a number of its DR sensors integrated into a wide range of popular X-ray systems, including the economical CXDI-50G sensor integrated into a wide range of portable x-ray solutions such as the AMX-4 DR upgrade, RadPro 40kW mobile and the RadPro 4kW portable x-ray units. Canon will also show a Field Deployable Digital Radiography System integrated with the Canon CXDI-50G DR sensor, and the RadPro Overhead Tube integrated with the Canon full-size CXDI-40EG DR system.

The Canon DR technology complies with the IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) standards for interoperability to help ensure easy, effective integration with an organization's network. For example, the Canon DR system can integrate directly with an IHE Scheduled Workflow Profile application. This seamless integration allows for procedure instructions and patient information to pass from the Health Information System/Radiology Information System (HIS/RIS) to the Canon device and return information directly to the HIS/RIS to aid in patient billing and records management.

"The Canon CXDI-40EC and CXDI-50C systems round out Canon's line of affordable DR solutions. Our DR solutions deliver maximum image quality, seamless network and workflow integration with DICOM* Standard-compliant devices, and superb dose efficiency to hospitals and clinical environments worldwide," said Tsuneo Imai, director and general manager, Medical Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. Inc. "The new Canon CXDI-40EC and CXDI-50C DR systems provide a variety of configuration options to help fit the requirements of a facility or practice, while delivering high-quality images with minimal X-ray exposure to patients, making them ideal for pediatric and orthopedic use, among other applications."

In addition to its medical devices, Canon will have other Canon-branded products, including the PIXMA Pro9000 photo printer, the imagePROGRAF iPF500 large format printer, and the REALiS SX6 projector, on display in its booth at RSNA. The PIXMA Pro9000 printer is an eight-color ink printer that produces a wide color gamut to achieve vivid coloration and high glossiness, and prints up to 13-inches X 19-inches on plain paper and specialty media. The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF500 17-inch printer features the company's new five-color dye-pigment reactive ink system, and the Canon L-COA image processor and FINE print head technology for exceptional image quality and fast output. The iPF500 can be used by medical facilities that print long images such as long leg or other stitched images. The REALiS SX6 projector, the Canon flagship REALiS projector, features new AISYS technology, 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness and 1.7X Ultra-Wide Powered Zoom Lens with Autofocus to deliver exceptional image quality and color reproduction.
