US-based Canon has received the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) approval for its CXDI-80C Wireless Digital Radiography (DR) Detector and CXDI-501 Series DR Detectors.

The CXDI-80C Wireless DR Detector is a lightweight body weighing about 5.1 pounds and includes a 6.1-megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and a cesium iodide (CsI) scintillator.

It occupies an imaging area of approximately 11 x 14-inches in size and is compatible with standard size Bucky trays and on a fully charged battery can produce up to 140 images.

CXDI-80C is portable and can fit into an incubator tray or isolette, which is used for orthopedics practice or Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU).

The CXDI-501 Series Detectors include Canon CXDI-501C and CXDI-501G DR Detectors, each weighing about 6.8 pounds and includes a 9.5 million megapixel image sensor with a pixel pitch of 125 microns and CsI or Gadolinium Oxysulfide (GSO) scintillator respectively.

The CXDI-501 Series Detectors occupy approximately 14 x 17-inch imaging area which are portable and are compatible with existing Bucky trays.

Canon Medical Systems Division senior director and general manager Tsuneo Imai said both CXDI-80C Wireless and the CXDI-501 DR Series Detectors result in low-dose radiation exposure to patients while improving image quality and helps to contribute quality care of their patients.
