Canon CMOS Sensors for Medical Applications

Canon CMOS sensors offer technological advancements at the pixel-level that afford medical imaging equipment manufacturers, researchers and physicians opportunities for more detailed imaging. Canon’s CMOS sensors feature large pixel sizes, high pixel counts, and high sensitivity all in a compact design with low power requirements. The result is the possibility for end users to create smaller, more powerful imaging devices that could help improve diagnoses, procedures and research. Whether imaging biological details in extreme detail, utilizing both the color and NIR spectrums for analysis, or augmenting procedures or detection with fluorescence or scintillation techniques, Canon CMOS sensors can offer capabilities to an end user’s application that can help enhance an imaging system.

Innovative Imaging Solutions for Advancements in Medical Imaging

Featuring options for ultra-high resolution, ultra-high sensitivity and high speed image capture, Canon’s CMOS sensors are capable of delivering fast, distortion-free images. One feature already being utilized by the medical community is imaging in the NIR spectrum. Canon’s available RGB-NIR color filter array further expands on this feature by simultaneously imaging in the NIR and visible spectrums, simplifying dual sensor systems performing the same functions while reducing size, weight, and power (SWaP). These innovations open up possibilities for end users to clear applications that can help advance medical imaging for patient care and discovery.
