industry.”

In Lakeside Hall, booth #1617, Canon U.S.A. will showcase a wide array of
solutions that can help practitioners deliver quality patient care through
devices that offer convenience, mobility, and imaging quality, and can help
practitioners establish efficient workflows:

Convenient Designs Offer Flexibility

Offering a highly versatile dual purpose imaging solution, the RadPRO^1
D2-50RF Dynamic Digital RF Imaging System provides exceptional image quality
for fluoroscopy and dynamic examinations. Depending on the image capture mode
and size, the CXDI-50RF Dynamic/ Static Flat Panel Detector has the ability to
take up to 30 frames per second (fps) for fluoroscopy imaging, while offering
static multi-frame radiographic imaging at up to 15 fps.

Portable Solutions for Streamlined Examinations

For a streamlined approach to digital radiography, the RadPRO 40kW Digital
Mobile System can be outfitted with a variety of Canon DR devices, including
the CXDI-70C Wireless DR System. Weighing 7.5 pounds, the durable Canon
CXDI-70C Wireless DR system is easy to handle and produces high-resolution
images as a result of a pixel pitch of just 125 microns. In addition, the DR
system incorporates a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator, helping to reduce
patient X-ray exposure. With the use of a custom tray (which is sold
separately), the CXDI-80C Wireless DR System is compatible with most Neonatal
Intensive Care Unit (NICU) beds, incubators and warmers without any
modifications.

Superb Imaging Quality for Enhanced Patient Care

With high-quality image sensors, Canon Digital Radiography detectors provide
excellent diagnostic images as a result of a pixel pitch of 125 microns, and
the detectors with CsI scintillators result in minimal patient X-ray exposure.
Ideal for various diagnostic imaging areas and radiology rooms, these Digital
Radiography systems are exceptionally versatile, portable and easy to install.

Exceptional Devices for Efficient Management of High-Volume Centers

The RadPRO ELITE Overhead/Ceiling Mounted Radiography System offers three
robust radiographic configurations that allow for easy, efficient exams needed
by today's high-volume imaging departments. Equipped with a high-frequency
generator, four-way float table, chest unit and overhead X-ray support, this
system offers precise positioning with speed and effortless movements. This
system can also be outfitted with a variety of Canon Wireless DR Systems,
including the CXDI-70C Wireless, CXDI-501C and CXDI-401C DR systems.
