Canon's digital radiography CXDI-31 flat-panel sensor has passed FDA review, the company announced Jan. 22. The sensor will allow hospital technologists to image patients on stretchers, gurneys, and patient tables, capturing an image from virtually any angle. The amorphous silicon detector lists for $85,000. Clinical testing of the sensor, which weighs just 6.2 pounds and measures less than an inch thick, was completed at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation clinical radiology and neonatal ICU departments. CXDI-31 is the latest addition to the company's DR products, whose first member, the CXDI-11 digital radiography system (upright), was launched in 1998. The CXDI-22 (digital bucky) joined the family in 2000. These Canon-developed systems are used in more than 350 locations worldwide.
