Canon Medical Systems, the digital radiography and image management division of the Japanese company formed earlier this year, has launched at the RSNA meeting in Chicago what it claims is the first digital retrofit bucky system for radiography. The CXDI-22 is an amorphous silicon-based flat panel detector which measures 17" by 17" and at less than 3" thick, fits into existing universal stand, upright and table-top bucky systems. Up to 300 images can be stored on the control station unit, which can transmit to any industry standard picture archiving and communication system. The system will be available from January at a price of around $200,000, according to the Irvine, California-based company.
