RSNA: Canon launches teaching projectors with DICOM simulation
Canon (Booth #8339) is debuting two high-resolution REALiS multimedia projectors, the REALiS WUX10 Mark II D and REALiS SX80 Mark II D, at the 2009 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.

The products feature a DICOM simulation mode that is in compliance with the DICOM Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. This new mode will assist medical educators when training and conducting lectures and conferences where a large display is needed, the Lake Success, N.Y.-based company said.

Canon said both multimedia projectors will feature the LCOS technology found on all REALiS models to provide medical educators with the capability to display film-like x-rays to large audiences in lecture halls, while also displaying lattice-free images.

The company noted that the two projectors are not cleared or approved for medical diagnosis and should not be used for these purposes.
