Digital Radiography

digital radiographyDigital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film or computed radiography (CR) cassettes. Advantages include:

  • Time Efficiency: Bypass cassette readers or chemical processing
  • Advanced Diagnostics: Digitally transfer and enhance images
  • Less Radiation Use: Images of similar contrast in DR use less radiation in comparison to conventional radiography or CR

According to an article posted on ITN, “Now more than ever, hospitals and imaging clinics are trying to maximize the value of their imaging equipment. Digital radiography (DR) solutions in particular prove to be a tremendous source of profit for many organizations. The ability to do more with less is the goal. DR systems provide beneficial reductions in the three most important areas — money, time and dose”.

At Richardson Healthcare, we understand that our customers operate in an industry where efficiency and cost-savings intertwine with patient care. With that in mind, Richardson Healthcare helps you achieve this while saving you time and money.

How can you make the switch to digital radiography?

With the Thales Artpix™ EZ2GO, convert your CR room to DR in one day. Convert any x-ray system using CR immediately to DR with a drop-in EZ2GO DR detector. It’s the same size as a CR cassette! Obviously, you need to make the switch. This solution is designed to meet the needs of radiologist and technicians using computed radiography (CR) that need to upgrade to Digital Radiography (DR).
