  • Canon's first compact wireless detector, CXDI-80C weighs 5.1 lb and offers an imaging area of approximately 11 x 14 inches, according to the vendor. It's compatible with standard-size bucky trays, allowing for radiology rooms to upgrade to digital imaging, Canon said.

    A 6.1-megapixel image sensor with a cesium iodide scintillator yields a pixel pitch of 125 microns. CXDI-80C can produce up to approximately 140 images on a fully charged battery and can fit into an incubator tray or isolette, Canon said.

    Suitable for use in the office or in the field, the CXDI-501 detectors have a detached cable and cassette compatibility, allowing for portability and installation with most existing bucky trays, according to the vendor. CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G also provide an imaging area of approximately 14 x 17 inches and each weighs approximately 6.8 lb.

    The detectors utilize an approximately 9.5-million megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and either a cesium iodide (CXDI-501C) or gadolinium oxysulfide (CDXI-501G) scintillator. Both allow for image preview approximately three seconds after exposure, Canon said.

    In other Canon news, the company said it has now produced more than 16,000 DR detectors since its initial launch of the CXDI-11 DR system in December 1997.
