Canon Enhances CXDI-Series Digital Radiography System Line-Up

Canon UK, a provider of imaging solutions, has developed a wireless, cassette-size digital radiography (DR) system the CXDI-70C Wireless that eliminates sensor cable for improved operability while delivering enhanced image quality.

Canon is currently carrying out efforts to further reduce the weight of the CXDI-70C wireless and accelerate the development speed, with the aim of realising a market launch in the latter half of 2010. The new model is positioned as a high-end DR system, along with Canon’s commercially available CXDI-55G/55C, which had a favourable reception since its release in 2009.

By eliminating the sensor cable, the newly developed Canon CXDI-70C Wireless enables handling similar to current film-cassette X-ray systems for effortless operability and superior portability. The model’s 35 x 43 cm effective imaging area offers the same dimensions as current ISO4090 compliant film-cassette models, allowing digitalization without the need to modify existing analogue imaging equipment.

The CXDI-70C Wireless incorporates a new Canon-developed glass substrate with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and, despite realizing a higher resolution as compared with the company’s 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 X-ray exposure for the patient.
