CHICAGO -- December 1, 2013

With a focus on productivity-enhancing solutions and high-quality imaging,
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will feature its
complete lineup of digital radiography (DR) devices at the Radiological
Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting on December 1-5, 2013 at
McCormick Place in Chicago. In Hall B, Booth #7313, North Building, Canon will
highlight a wide array of solutions that offer superb imaging quality,
workflow efficiency, and flexibility.

At the show, Canon will introduce the new Canon CXDI-701C Wireless Digital
Radiography detector that is designed to help healthcare professionals attain
a new level of performance, usability, and reliability. By utilizing
technology and solutions that help accelerate exams and maintain productive
workflows, practitioners can effectively accomplish more while maintaining
quality care. The CXDI-701C Wireless Detector is the first Canon detector to
incorporate additional customer-focused features such as enhanced liquid
intrusion protection, on-board battery charging, and impact detection. As
well, this latest Canon digital detector is light and easy to handle –
weighing only 7.3 pounds.

“As the healthcare industry faces greater industry regulation and increased
patient demands, we look forward to showcasing cost-effective products and
solutions that will help make the difficult task of providing high-quality,
affordable care easier and more attainable,” said Tsuneo Imai, senior director
and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Canon U.S.A.. and
president, Virtual Imaging, Inc. “Our efficient workflow solutions and
high-resolution imaging devices will help healthcare providers have an
efficient document workflow, which can allow more time to focus on providing
patient care.”

CXDI-701C Wireless Digital Radiography Detector

Building on the success of its predecessor, the new Canon CXDI-701C Wireless
DR system weighs less than eight pounds and incorporates high-quality image
sensors that provide high-resolution images at a low dose as a result of a 125
micron pixel pitch. Ideal for various diagnostic imaging areas and radiology
rooms, and built for convenience and time savings, the DR panel incorporates
an on-board battery charging capability for minimal disruption during
operation.

Enhanced Workflow Package

Specifically designed as an option for the RadPRO 40kw Digital Mobile X-ray
System^1, the Enhanced Workflow Package^1 can help technologists save time by
reducing unnecessary steps and completing routine imaging tasks from the
mobile device directly at bedside. Allowing users to customize their workflow
routine, the Enhanced Workflow Package seamlessly switches between image
acquisition and third party HIS/RIS software applications. In addition,
technologists can query PACS for prior studies, perform image verification,
and close patient exams from the mobile. For added convenience, the RadPRO
40kW Digital Mobile X-ray System, equipped with a Canon DR detector and the
new optional Enhanced Workflow Package, provides imaging technologists an
alternative to having to access healthcare information systems from a
dedicated workstation.

Auto-Positioning Overhead Radiography System^2

Virtual Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., is
developing an Auto-Positioning Overhead Radiography System. This system will
incorporate automatic motorized positioning and will feature automatic
stitching, a 10” touch screen by the tube, a vertical wall stand, and a table
with extended range of motion. It is anticipated that this system will be
outfitted with a variety of Canon wireless DR Systems, including the CXDI-70C
Wireless and CXDI-401G detectors, and the Canon CXDI Control Software NE.

RadPRO D2-50RF Dynamic Digital RF Imaging System

The highly versatile RadPRO D2-50RF Dynamic Digital RF Imaging System^1 is a
dual-purpose imaging solution that provides exceptional image quality for both
fluoroscopy and static examinations. Depending on the image capture mode and
size, the CXDI-50RF Dynamic/Static Flat Panel Detector (included with the
RadPRO D2-50RF DR System) 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. Utilizing this dynamic portable detector provides the
flexibility to perform fluoroscopy examinations, general radiography
procedures and direct radiographic projections with a single cost-effective
detector.

In addition to these devices, Canon will also feature a variety of the
Company’s flat-panel digital radiography detectors, including:

  *Canon CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography Detector
  *Canon CXDI-70C Wireless Digital Radiography Detector
  *Canon CXDI-55C and CXDI-55G Digital Radiography Detectors
  *Canon CXDI-50RF Dynamic/Static Digital Radiography Detector
  *Canon CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G Digital Radiography Detectors
  *Canon CXDI-401C, CXDI-401G, CXDI-401C COMPACT and CXDI-401G COMPACT
    Digital Radiography Detectors
