DR System Receives Landmark Department of Defense Cybersecurity Certification

The RadPRO SOLTUS 100M Mobile Digital X-Ray System from Virtual Imaging, Inc, a Canon company, has received cybersecurity certification for the Risk Management Framework (RMF) program of the United States Department of Defense. Canon USA recently announced that the Department of Defense purchased more than 100 units of the RadPRO SOLTUS 100M system from Virtual Imaging for field use. The RadPRO SOLTUS 100M System is the first medical device to obtain this certification as part of the military’s portable DR system project.

“This certification is the culmination of a successful collaboration among Virtual Imaging, Canon USA, Canon Inc, and the Department of Defense,” says Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager of the Healthcare Solutions Division of the Business Imaging Solutions Group at Canon USA, Inc, and president of Virtual Imaging, Inc. “As the United States government has a strict framework in place regarding the cybersecurity of its health care devices, Canon worked closely with all parties for a year and a half to ensure that the SOLTUS 100M System met the necessary criteria of the certification process. By achieving this status, Virtual Imaging has taken steps to help shield military users of the SOLTUS 100M System from potentially catastrophic data breaches.”

Probing Psychopathic Brains
An MRI study by Harvard recently found that people with psychopathy were unable to evaluate the future consequences of their actions.
