Provider of digital imaging solutions, Canon U.S.A has announced a new CR-2 Digital Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera for ophthalmic professionals. The CR-2 retinal camera uses an advanced retinal imaging technology and a number of various enhancements in a lightweight and compact design.
The Canon CR-2 retinal camera utilizes the EOS camera technology to generate 15.1-megapixel retinal imaging. The technology is suitable for acquiring detailed and comprehensive diagnostic retinal images, thereby aiding eye care professionals to monitor and detect ocular conditions. The system uses a single sensor to manage the operations for digital filtered and color images for cobalt and red-free imaging as well as for infrared observation.
The low flash intensity of the CR-2 retinal camera reduces pupil constriction and the time needed for capturing multiple pictures including stereo photography. In addition, the camera prevents the necessity of retaking the images when patients’ blink. The white LED used for flash intensity reduces power consumption and enhances maintenance frequency. The CR-2 camera’s auto exposure feature optimizes the brightness of the image, and requires no manual setting of the flash intensity and observation light.
The CR-2 retinal camera occupies less office space and can be easily installed and transported. The illuminated control panel present on the camera enables medical staff to navigate functions in dark rooms. The CR-2 camera reduces total ownership cost and its energy-efficient design cuts down energy expenditures in medical facilities.
