Canon CX 1 Hybrid Mydriatic/Non-Mydriatic Digital Retinal Camera is Canon’s first retinal camera that is completely hybrid using modes that are the two non-mydriatic and mydriatic. The operator can switch between mydriatic and non-mydriatic modes, performing many concurrent ocular evaluations and utilizing functions within minutes. FAF is autofluorescence in macular waste Lipofuscin’s incidence. Examinations that check and track waste material are a key step in age-related muscular degeneration detection. Using the manner not only saves time and resources, but it also can make the diagnostic process more comfortable for the patient.
Canon CX 1 is a Hybrid retinal camera: both mydriatic (needs eye fall to dilate pupils) and non-mydriatic. This two in one Fundus Camera is simple to operate, features auto-focus and auto-shot, photography that is perfect for the small student. The quality of Autofluorescence Photography picks up heat, blood circulation and abnormalities in blood vessels, making it easier to detect retinal disease.
Canon CX 1 captures high-quality pictures in five photography modes: color, red-free, cobalt, fluorescein angiography as well as technically hard fundus autofluorescence (FAF). Users can capture these images in non-mydriatic or mydriatic mode, simply by pushing a button to switch between modes.
Canon CX 1 Features
- Five Photography Modes
Canon CX 1 offers five photography modes including Color, Red-Free, Cobalt, Fluorescein Angiography (FA), and Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF).
- Non-Mydriatic Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) Photography
With the push of the Myd/Non-Myd button to select the non-mydriatic mode and the FAF mode, the operator is ready to begin taking images. The FAF mode helps monitor macular waste such as lipofuscin, which assists the eye care professional with detecting age-macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetes.
- One Touch Selection of MYD/NM
A single push of the Myd/Non-Myd button switches between the mydriatic and non-mydriatic imaging modes.
- Control Panel
Whether the CX-1 is in mydriatic or non-mydriatic mode, the control panel has simple operation, workflow efficiency, and ergonomic controls.
- Superior Image Quality
Clear, high-resolution images are available in either mydriatic or non-mydriatic mode. The 2x mode magnifies the image by automatically cropping out the peripheral edges so the region of interest is larger in the frame.
- Stereo Photography System
The LCD monitor displays guides which automatically determine the base length for acquiring successful stereo images. The two images can be stored as a pair making it easier to manage the files.
- EOS Camera Technology
Made exclusively for the CX-1, the detachable camera features Canon’s EOS camera technology with its renowned image processing capabilities providing optimal retinal imaging. The camera handles five different photography modes including non-mydriatic FAF photography, Color, Red-free, Fluorescein Angiography, and Cobalt.
- Retinal Imaging Control Software
Using the Canon Retinal Imaging Control Software (RICS), images can be viewed, manipulated, sent to a DICOM storage device or stored as DICOM or JPEG images and sent to a printer.
