Canon U.S.A. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Virtual Imaging, have introduced the RadPRO Omnera 400A auto-positioning digital radiographic system.

Canon claims that RadPRO Omnera 400A 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.

Made up of rugged crafted aircraft aluminum, the RadPRO Omnera 400A system incorporates automatic motorized positioning and features automatic stitching, a tube-mounted 10 inch touch screen, a vertical wall stand and a table with extended range of motion.

The auto-positioning digital radiographic system has a high-frequency generator and an elevating six way table with a 550-pound patient load.

It utilizes Canon CXDI Control Software NE and will be outfitted with certain of Canon’s portfolio of CXDI Digital Radiography detectors.

Canon U.S.A. Healthcare Solutions division Business Imaging Solutions vice president and general manager Tsuneo Imai said that the RadPRO Omnera 400A auto-positioning digital radiographic system has been designed to meet the acute productivity and versatility needs of radiographers.

"Its efficiency and robust construction, in combination with the performance of Canon digital radiography detectors, help to ensure consistent, easy exams with high throughput," Imai added.

"Especially important is its high degree of flexibility to accommodate both the needs of patients and of the healthcare providers."
