NOVEMBER 10--Cedara Software Corp. (Toronto, Canada; www.cedara.com), an independent developer of medical software technologies for the global health-care market, has completed a cooperative distribution agreement with Air Techniques Inc. to create an affordable computed-radiography (CR) solution for private-practice clinics and value-conscious hospitals and radiology imaging centers. Under terms of the multiyear agreement, All-Pro Imaging, a division of Air Techniques, will package Cedara's I-Acquire CR acquisition console software with its popular ScanX Digital Imaging System, which it sells through its nationwide network of medical x-ray dealers. The ScanX-Cedara I-Acquire solution puts digital imaging well within the reach of physicians, podiatrists, veterinarians, chiropractors, and other specialist users.

"Until now, the high cost of digital radiography and hospital-sized CR systems has prevented the private practice from enjoying the advantages of digital imaging," said Jeff Goldstein, president of All-Pro Imaging and Air Techniques. "Working with Cedara's engineering team we felt confident we could build a solution to successfully fit this market. And we did. Both our free-standing and desktop units are more affordable than anything else on the market, and we didn't sacrifice anything in image quality to do it."

Cedara I-Acquire CR, an image acquisition solution designed for computed radiography systems, is a part of Cedara's complete line of universal acquisition consoles. These multipurpose console applications enable medical device manufacturers and system integrators to create competitive computed radiography, digital radiography, mammography, and film-digitizer acquisition systems with powerful workflow and image processing capabilities on a wide variety of image acquisition devices.
