Improved software for the new radiography flat panel detectors

In radiography what really matters is the result.

When developing a new line up, we focused on improving the flat panel detector design. So you can benefit from a much lighter and more ergonomic design, while obtaining the Canon imaging quality. We used new carbon fiber housing ensuring tremendous weight reduction, increased robustness and improved water resistance.

Furthermore, Canon’s NE Control Software is the control software of Canon’s digital radiography solutions, known for its outstanding imaging quality and performance. Behind the high-end specifications of CsI technology, a bright intelligence is running to control and optimize the images taken allowing you to enhance your workflow. In the latest software releases we have advanced its functionality to improve performance even more.

High contrast images without using a grid

Canon’s scatter correction software increases the contrast of images taken without a grid up to a level similar to images taken with a grid.

Where a grid physically reduces scatter and thereby increases the contrast, the software mimics this process virtually.

The software works by creating a scatter model, which is subsequently subtracted from the image.

The result is an image with reduced scatter and increased contrast.

How would this benefit you?

Depending on the clinical requirements, you could choose to have (mobile) x-ray systems equipped without a grid, but instead use Canon’s image processing technology including scatter correction and noise reduction to realize:

1. Lighter equipment, which is easier to carry and use by technologists
2. Work more efficient, due to the elimination of grid misalignments
3. Possible dosage reduction compared to imaging with a grid

Technically the scatter correction will be applicable to all protocols, but stringent reviews on clinical applicability is required.

High Sensitivity for Paediatric Imaging

Find out here how Digital Radiology solutions from Canon help you provide an enhanced level of treatment to your most venerable patients.

Canon offers a range of superb diagnostic image quality systems for versatile low dose digital radiography. Canon’s solutions are more sensitive than conventional systems and tailor-made for paediatric and orthopedic use.

Studies conducted over the last few years confirm that

- Canon’s digital radiography detectors are extremely sensitive and maintain the diagnostic image quality in paediatric radiology at reduced radiation dose.
- Canon’s CXDI Control Software NE features advanced image processing for paediatric radiology, which makes possible to see all subtle details of trabecular bone structure and soft tissue in the same image.
