MELVILLE, N.Y. -- July 29, 2013

Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced it
will showcase its line of radiology offerings at the 2013 American Healthcare
Radiology Administrators Exposition (AHRA) at the Minneapolis Convention
Center (Booth # 502), from July 28 – 31, 2013. Committed to enhancing
productivity, supporting patient-first workflows and providing high-quality
imaging technologies, Canon will demonstrate a variety of offerings designed
to help improve the way industry professionals work and help control costs.

In addition to exhibiting its newest radiology solutions, Canon U.S.A. will
celebrate a major milestone, as its parent company, Canon Inc., has reached
22,000 global unit sales of digital radiology (DR) detectors. This is another
benchmark for the company, which entered the market in 1997 with the
industry’s first portable DR system, the CXDI-11 Digital Radiography Detector,
and continues to be at the forefront of developing DR solutions.

“Canon’s leading-edge imaging technology and its culture of innovation have
inspired substantial achievements in the healthcare space,” said Tsuneo Imai,
senior director and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business
Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “Canon Inc.’s latest production and sales
milestone reinforces Canon’s significance in the industry, while inspiring us
to maintain this momentum for years to come. We are excited to celebrate this
achievement at AHRA 2013, alongside valued customers and partners, as we
demonstrate our breadth of solutions that foster efficiency, support patient
care and deliver outstanding image quality.”

The current Canon detector portfolio offers a range of solutions for a wide
variety of applications. For example, the RadPRO^1 line of radiography
solutions help healthcare organizations -- whether a high-volume hospital,
orthopedic center or private practice – produce high-quality images at low
dose. In addition to fixed room solutions, versatile Canon mobile solutions
offer DR portability in a variety of modern settings. Canon, through its
subsidiary Virtual Imaging, also offers a series of upgrade solutions that can
be easily integrated with most standard analog X-ray equipment and selected
competitive mobile systems, providing access to the latest DR technology with
Canon portable and wireless flat panel detectors.

Canon U.S.A. will feature a variety of these solutions for the healthcare
industry at AHRA 2013 , including the

RadPRO D2-50RF Dynamic Digital RF System. Equipped with the innovative Canon
CXDI-50RF Dynamic/Static Digital Radiography Detector (the world's first
portable dynamic and static sensor panel), this system is a dual-purpose
digital imaging solution that performs both digital fluoroscopy and digital
radiography. This device offers flexible portable imaging to satisfy the need
for a removable digital detector, which is required for high-volume
facilities. The protocol driven RadPRO D2-50RF supports the latest in
interactive system communication and features auto-positioning to help improve
the user workflow. Other solutions to be shown:

Mobile Solutions for Streamlined Workflows and Enhanced Patient Care

Healthcare providers can maximize resources and simplify workflows through a
mobile and portable radiology solution from Canon. With its compact and
easy-to-maneuver design, the RadPro 40kW Digital Mobile X-ray System provides
the flexibility of a radiography room on wheels – to bring the radiography
room to the patient and allow administrators to maximize office space by
reducing the need to have dedicated rooms for specific procedures.

Convenient Upgrade Kits for Effective, Cost-Conscious Device Management

As the industry continues facing tighter budgets and increased patient
demands, Canon’s Digital Mobile Upgrade Kits help maximize resources by
providing a cost-effective solution that enhances existing radiography devices
with the latest digital capabilities. Whether transforming one machine or an
entire fleet, these kits provide an affordable option for healthcare
professionals interested in bringing outdated existing systems into
state-of-the-art systems. Once updated, these devices provide improved imaging
capabilities, low-dose examinations and fast processing times.

In addition, Canon U.S.A. will showcase at Booth #502:

    Digital Radiography systems, Canon DR Image Viewer Software is designed to
    help streamline workflow and maximize throughput.
