The Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR)
As the first Canon compact wireless DR detector, the CXDI-80C Wireless DR Detector builds on
the success of the renowned Canon
CXDI-70C Wireless DR Detector, while achieving
reductions in size and weight. The CXDI-80C
Wireless DR Detector features a lightweight body
design with an imaging area of approximately 11 x 14-inches in size, compatible
with standard size Bucky trays, enabling radiology room upgrades from analog to
cutting-edge digital imaging. Providing high-quality images with low X-ray
exposure to the patient, the CXDI-80C
Wireless DR Detector weighs 5.1 pounds and
incorporates a 6.1-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and
a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator. The CXDI-80C Wireless DR Detector also
produces up to approximately 140 images on a fully charged battery, allowing
for long-time operation on a single charge. Providing excellent portability,
the CXDI-80C Wireless DR
Detector can also fit into an incubator tray or isolette, which is ideal for
orthopedics practice or Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU).
The Canon CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Series Detectors
Helping medical professionals deliver efficient diagnoses and quality patient
care, the CXDI-501 Series Detectors provide impressive image quality and
portability for great operation in the office or in the field. With a
detachable cable and cassette compatibility, the Canon CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR
Detectors are exceptionally versatile, satisfying both portability and easy
installation for most existing Bucky trays. The CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR
Detectors feature an approximately 14 x 17-inch imaging area, and each weighs
approximately 6.8 pounds. Boasting exceptional light-conversion efficiency, the
CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR Detectors also incorporate a high-quality,
approximately 9.5 million megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125
microns and offer a Cesium Iodide (CsI) or Gadolinium Oxysulfide (GSO)
scintillator, respectively. The CXDI-501 DR Series Detectors also provide fast
exam output allowing medical practitioners to preview an image approximately
three seconds after exposure.
The Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography Detector and
CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Series Detectors join the complete Canon line of
digital imaging devices and workflow management solutions. The CXDI-80C
Wireless Digital Radiography Detector and CXDI-501 Digital Radiography Series
