The 22nd European Congress of Radiology held in Vienna from March 4-8, attracted delegates from around the world.
Pictured on the Canon Medical Systems stand with the new Canon CXDI-70C Wireless dDR detector announced at the meeting are Neil Staff, technical director, Xograph Healthcare UK and Ireland and Peter Blonk, director of sales and marketing, Canon Europa Medical Systems Division.
The CXDI-70C wireless detector eliminates the need for a cable for improved operability whilst delivering greatly enhanced image quality with a reduced radiation burden for the patient.
The newly developed Canon CXDI-70C Wireless has the same external dimensions as current ISO4090 compliant imaging cassettes allowing use in existing rooms without the need to modify analogue imaging equipment. The wireless detector incorporates a new Canon-developed glass substrate with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and delivers an increased level of sensitivity as a result of its Caesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator and new Canon detector developments. This combination delivers exceptional image quality whilst significantly reducing X-ray exposure to the patient.
The CXDI-70C will be available in the UK and Ireland later this year from Xograph Healthcare Ltd
A picture report of ECR will be published in the April issue of RAD Magazine.
