Canon USA and its wholly owned subsidiary, Virtual Imaging, have launched the RadPRO Omnera 400A auto-positioning digital radiographic system.
According to the company, the radiographic system is the first of a new series of overhead radiographic systems designed to help healthcare professionals meet the challenges of demanding hospital imaging departments and help create an efficient workflow to increase patient throughput.
The RadPRO Omnera 400A system, which is made of rugged crafted aircraft aluminium, includes automatic motorised positioning and features automatic stitching, a tube-mounted 10in touchscreen, a vertical wall stand and a table with extended range of motion.
The system uses the Canon CXDI Control Software NE and will be outfitted with certain of Canon's portfolio of CXDI Digital Radiography detectors.
Canon USA vice-president and Tsuneo Imai said: "Its efficiency and robust construction, in combination with the performance of Canon digital radiography detectors, help to ensure consistent, easy exams with high throughput.
"Especially important is its high degree of flexibility to accommodate both the needs of patients and of the healthcare providers."
The system also has a high-frequency generator and an elevating six way table with a 550lb patient load. It offers a low table position for easy patient access and transfer, while a high table position provides a comfortable working level.
Its fully motorised auto-positioning provides servo tracking to both the wall stand and table to provide precision positioning quickly and easily.
