Canon Eye Care Technology to be on Display at the American Telemedicine Association 2017 Conference

MELVILLE, N.Y., April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Showcasing its teleretinal imaging solution and displaying other Canon eye care devices and solutions, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced that it will attend the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) 2017 International Conference and Tradeshow, held from April 23 to April 25, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Canon U.S.A. encourages guests to visit its booth (#918) to see first-hand the capabilities of Canon eye screening technology. On display will be the Canon CR-2 PLUS AF Digital Non-Mydriatic retinal camera and imageSPECTRUM Image Management System software1, an intuitive software solution offering image management and portability to help improve workflow, which is sold separately. By using the CR-2 PLUS AF retinal camera with imageSPECTRUM software, healthcare professionals using either the Windows® 7 with SQL 2012 or Windows 10 with SQL 2016 operating system can perform retinal screenings and then quickly transmit the images to doctors' offices thousands of miles away, both domestic and abroad2, to assist in making a diagnosis.

In addition to the CR-2 PLUS AF camera's ability to capture high-resolution color retinal images, the imageSPECTRUM software, which is sold separately, includes a set of digital RGB filters to assist with the viewing of suspect pathologies and an opacity suppression tool to help provide clear images of the eye. The CR-2 PLUS AF camera includes a non-invasive Fundus Autofluorescence imaging mode that provides the reviewer with the ability to quickly assess the condition of the RPE layer.

The Canon CR-2 PLUS AF camera can help healthcare professionals capture ultra-high resolution images efficiently. Utilizing advanced Canon EOS optics and CMOS image-capture technology, the CR-2 PLUS AF camera features a customized 20.2 megapixel digital camera. With the press of a button, users can switch between auto and manual focusing for ultimate control and ease-of-use. The Auto Capture function determines the appropriate moment to capture an image by analyzing when exposure and alignment are ideal.
