Canon Medical Systems has taken concerns about falling reimbursements as the justification for a program in which hospitals and other medical facilities can upgrade their x-ray equipment with digital detectors. The program, launched about six months ago, has resulted in a surge of detector sales. Several large individual hospitals and chains have placed orders for a dozen or more upgrades of Canon's film-based radiography systems. Working with Virtual Imaging of Deerfield, FL, Canon has been promoting onsite and offsite refurbishing of film-based systems through the integration of its portfolio of CXDI 50 and CXDI 40 digital detectors. Virtual Imaging works with more than 50 dealers in Canon's nationwide distribution network to interest providers in the program.
