The unique cost structure of the Digital Radiography Upgrade Program allows LLUMC to transition its computed radiography (CR) technologies to
LLUMC's Digital Radiography Upgrade Program will include the installation of 11 DX-D Retrofit systems to convert existing CR-based radiography rooms to completely digital systems, and five wireless DX-D 100 mobile DR systems.
Unique cost structure made DR upgrade possible
'The benefits of DR technology, including better quality images at low doses and faster X-ray processing, are well known within the radiology department at LLUMC. For us it was not a question of if we wanted to upgrade to DR but instead a question of how we could upgrade and when we would have the financial means to do so,' commented
'Patient engagement, comfort, and satisfaction have greatly increased as a result of our upgrade to DR,' remarked
LLUMC's upgrade to DR includes several of
DX-D Retrofit - a cost effective solution for seamlessly migrating CR-based modalities to the benefits of DR. Key to the DX-D Retrofit is its ability to leverage existing equipment to enable a cost and process-efficient transition from image cassettes to digitized X-ray images that can then be shared and accessed within the EHR. This vendor-neutral upgrade solution provides DR workflow and image quality for fraction of the price of a complete system and handles many applications including pediatric for NICUs.
DX-D 100 - wirelessly connects to the hospital information system and contains onboard dose management tools, allowing for instant high-quality image capture at the patient bedside to facilitate improved patient comfort.
'Though the benefits of DR are widely known, many hospitals are challenged to find cost effective ways to upgrade their legacy radiation technologies,' said
