Canon CXDI Digital Detectors and Virtual Imaging RadPRO Products Receive Certification and Accreditation From U.S. Department Of The Air Force

MELVILLE, N.Y. ---- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced its complete current CXDI lineup of digital radiology systems as well as the Virtual Imaging, Inc., a Canon U.S.A Company, RadPRO1 lineup have received Air Force (AF) information assurance certification. AF Certification and Accreditation (C&A) marks a significant breakthrough for Canon and its subsidiary, Virtual Imaging, as they are the first companies in the digital radiology marketplace to receive this certification and accreditation on their complete portfolio of direct capture radiology systems. This certification validates that the security features of the Canon CXDI Digital Detectors and Virtual Imaging's RadPRO digital radiology systems meet the stringent security requirements of the Air Force.

In today's healthcare environment the lines are blurred between medical devices and information systems, and Information Assurance requirements have been put in place to keep the Air Force’s network secure, ensure patient data is properly managed, and protect medical devices from cyberattacks,” said Lieutenant Colonel Erich Murrell, Chief Information Security Officer for Medical Devices and Director of the Medical Device Information Security Program Office. “While this is a growing issue in all industries, the Air Force's rigorous guidelines and testing of devices such as Canon’s suite of digital detectors and Virtual Imaging’s RadPRO radiology systems help us prevent security breaches so that the Air Force Medical Service Team can rest assured their radiological devices are secure, reliable and, most importantly, saving lives.”

The AF conducted an extensive certification and accreditation process of the current CXDI digital detectors and RadPRO devices, including a detailed review of the product design, configuration, workflow, FDA clearance (where required), and maintenance plans, as well as a full risk assessment of system scans and documentation. This analysis and testing led to the granting of Air Force Certification and Accreditation for the Canon digital radiography detectors and RadPRO lineup.

“This is a huge milestone for Canon and Virtual Imaging as it is a testament to the ongoing emphasis we place on information security features in our healthcare technologies. The current Canon CXDI digital detectors and RadPRO systems have met all of the United States Air Force’s Information Assurance requirements, allowing any AF medical treatment facility to use these devices,” said Chris Duca, president of Virtual Imaging, Inc., a Canon U.S.A. company.

The AFCAP Certified and Accredited Canon CXDI digital detectors and RadPRO systems can be purchased and installed and utilized at any of the AFMS medical facilities. Currently, the AFMS uses Canon products at many deployed and fixed facilities throughout the world.
