Canon sets sights on healthcare industry
Canon showcasing printers capable of printing X-rays, radiographs on normal printer paper
Canon Emirates is showcasing its Canon imagePRESS C1+ machine at the Arab Health exhibition being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Canon Emirates, participating in the exhibition for the first time, is demonstrating how its digital imaging solutions may help the healthcare industry save on radiographic imaging costs and improve its abilities to acquire, display, store and distribute medical images.
"We at Canon are always looking for innovative and cutting-edge opportunities to enable organisations, such as hospitals and other medical institutions, to provide better service to their end-users and clients," said Mohamed Seif, Business Development manager, Canon Emirates.
"The continuing adoption of medical imaging technologies in the healthcare industry has resulted in cost-savings and work efficiencies. Printing x-rays on normal paper, for instance, is on average substantially cheaper than using traditional film. It also reduces storage, distribution and disposal costs," said Seif
According to Canon, patients are also likely to feel the savings of their X-ray results and other post-diagnostic radiographs being printed on normal printer paper, since they have to pay the cost of obtaining both their medical diagnosis and results.
"Canon's latest medical imaging technologies allow for easier information management as X-ray data is stored digitally, and make it easier for physicians and specialised technicians to classify, archive, retrieve and even distribute post-diagnostic documents. Equally important, Canon's medical imaging technology has less environmental impact, because paper is bio-degradable and less harmful than film," said Seif.
