Two new detector systems entered the marketplace at the Canon Medical Systems booth this week on the RSNA exhibit floor. The Canon CXDI-50C Portable features a 14 by 17-inch detector plate. The Canon CXDI-40EC features a 17-inch square area.

"These are both in response to customers' interest in detectors that provide high sensitivity to radiation exposure and, therefore, require less dose," said Elaine Bouchard, product marketing manager at Canon Medical Systems, a division of Canon USA. "This makes them excellent products for use with orthopedics, pediatrics, and for patients who are imaged often."

Over the past 10 years, Canon has introduced eight generations of flat-panel sensors. These latest two additions, the portable CXDI-50C and the CXDI-40EC, are based on cesium iodide versus the gadolinium oxysulfide used in the "G" series of products.
