Take a step into the future with Adora and be inspired by the smooth, precise and rapid movements that bring workflow, ergonomics and examination excellence to a completely new level.
Every element and functional aspect of the Adora has been designed with end users in mind. Through a continuous development collaboration between users, engineers and designers, Adora combines outstanding technical quality with a unique approach to user friendly design.
Adora is an automatic, motorized digital radiographic imaging solution featuring a unique, rotating ceiling unit with two telescopic arms, one for the X-ray tube and one for the detector; this allows you to perform exposures from practically any angle through one-touch, stress-free operation.
Imagine any projection and perform it: exploit the system’s extensive movement ranges and many detector-to-tube tracking options. The inMotion auto-positioning technology enables fast and intelligent automatic positioning of the detector and tube to any saved position with all examination parameters pre-set.
Inspired by users, the Adora offers the ideal way to improve health care delivery and is available in two different versions: Adora DRi and Adora DRFi.
Save and restore any position – permanently or on-the-fly. Preferred positions can be saved and recalled at any time, for fast and fully automatic positioning.
OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
A wide range of high-quality flat panel detectors from Canon is the cornerstone in Adora system configurations. The Canon detectors and CXDI software provide fast, high quality, digital image capture on demand and cover an extensive range of radiographic examinations.
With Adora, one detector is all you need. In addition to the docked detector, Adora supports up to two portable detectors. Thus, ergonomics and examination flexibility can be further enhanced by adding a wireless detector to the configuration.
Intuitive Canon software provides sophisticated image processing for premium diagnostic image quality and can be supplemented with options such as Scatter Correction (reduces dose, eliminates grid artefacts) or Advanced Edge Enhancement (enhanced contrast and detail visibility). The extensive portfolio of Canon wireless detectors ensures you the highest performance in workflow, sensitivity, image quality and versatility, and can even be shared between rooms/modalities.
Options and accessories
Adora systems support a wide range of options and accessories enabling configurations to be tailored to local needs and match both present and future requirements.
Depending on the user requirements, different monitor configurations are available, in particular for Adora DRFi with in-room wall- or trolley mounted live monitor solutions.
Adora systems support a wide range of colour- and symbol-coded noise reducing grids for insertion in the detector docking unit, and grids with handles for wireless detectors.
Patient Grip Stand and stitching
For the convenience and support of standing patients for e.g. Thorax examinations, a height adjustable grip for lateral examinations is included. The patient support stand is the basis for the stitching positioner, which can be easily rotated to provide support and a shield between the patient and the moving detector dock during acquisition of multiple images in e.g., Scoliosis procedures.
Laser cross in collimator
In addition to the collimator light, a laser cross can be built into the tube assembly, giving a more precise identification of the center of the x-ray beam.
Wall-mounted pushbutton for convenient access to activation of an auto-position.
Wireless remote control
Wireless, programmable, remote control for one-hand operation of tube, detector, collimation, and auto-positioning.
Wireless foot switches for control of the patient table (up, down, float), auto-positioning, and exposure, e.g. colour coded for DR, serial and fluoroscopy for Adora DRFi.
Patient ceiling hoist
The patient ceiling hoist system is indispensable for handling immobile, elderly and overweight patients. Consisting of an integrated patient ceiling hoist and lifting sling, it enables staff to manoeuvre patients into position with minimum hassle and maximum ease.
Designed to be used during in-room fluoroscopy procedures, it provides full control of the functions you need during an in-room procedure. 4 ergonomic joysticks give you easy access to 3 key control functionalities such as moving the positioner, choosing tracking modes and adjusting the collimator. Use the 4th joystick to control your desired custom functions, for ultimate adaptability.
Table side hand grips
The table side handgrips are intended for use by the patient as support when moving to or on the table.
Paper roll holder
Mounted on the patient table when laminated or unlaminated paper is used for hygienic coverage of the table.
Grid wall storage
A wall-mounted storage is available in different configurations, depending of the number of grids and the number of additional portable detectors to be stored.
Transfer mattress in the patient table shape design with both high friction and low friction surfaces.
Patient table support for CPR
Height-adjustable support stand to be placed under the table in case of emergency CPR to prevent deflection of the patient table.
Building-blocks for configurable foot step - can also be configured as a two-step staircase.
The IV stand is intended for use for suspension of 1 or 2 IV bags during an examination. The IV stand can be attached freely along the sides of the patient table.
A set of two leg supports for gynecological and urological examinations. They can be placed freely along the patient table.
Special imaging functionalities
inOrbit makes the tube and detector rotate on an imaginable sphere around either a horizontal or vertical anatomy at an SID specified by the user, and is highly useful in examinations where multiple precision images of the same anatomy are needed.
inTurn (Adora DRFi only)
User configurable, pre-programmed positioning mode by which a 90-degree position change can be executed within 10 seconds. Applicable in connection with e.g., myelographic procedures where the alternate dual perspective is paramount for the clinician.
Canon’s Scatter Correction option reduces the effect of scattered radiation for non-grid examinations, allowing images with outstanding contrast while avoiding the grid handling and improving the workflow.

Advanced Edge Enhancement
Canon’s Advanced Edge Enhancement image processing is designed to enhance the visualization of tubes, catheters and bone details. Besides the original diagnostic image, additional companion views can be added for a specific diagnostic or clinical purpose. Advanced Edge Enhancement filter type and effect can be pre-defined in each protocol.
