An ideal solution for Radiology departments looking to ease the transition to Direct Radiography (DR).
LaFox, Illinois – December 1, 2014… Richardson Healthcare announced today at the 100th annual RSNA Meeting the latest new product addition to its portfolio – the Thales Artpix™ Mobile EZ2GO.
The EZ2GO is a wireless digital radiography detector that is linked to a rugged portable tablet. It is an ideal Computed Radiography (CR) to Direct Radiography (DR) solution for Radiology departments because a generator or system interface is not required. Everything is managed via a tablet and a wireless connection. This solution allows users to import a work list, acquire an image, post process and send final images to a Picture Archiving Computer System (PACS).
Richardson Healthcare is applying its in house team of engineering and product development resources to develop a variety of DR system retrofits and upgrades. Richardson has partnered with Thales, a leader in flat panel detector technology, for wired and wireless detectors, including the new ArtPix EZ2GO solution.
“Richardson believes EZ2GO is a game changer in the DR market. It’s completely portable and can be used with any existing X-ray equipment,” commented Pat Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Richardson Healthcare. “This product aligns with Richardson Healthcare’s objective to bring cost effective solutions to hospitals and other healthcare providers.”
Featuring Thales’ best-in-class Pixium 3543EZ and 2430EZ portable wireless detectors, the Artpix EZ2GO offers many advantages including:
- Easy upgrade from CR to DR.
- Auto detection capability makes for a Plug and Play solution, ready for immediate use with no need for a generator or system interface.
- The system is ultra-portable featuring the world’s lightest wireless flat panel detectors available today.
- Waterproof, rugged detector built to withstand the toughest environments.
- The only detector on the market to include a two year drop warranty at no additional charge.
See the Artpix EZ2GO at RSNA 2014 November 30 through December 5, in the Richardson Healthcare Booth # 6907 (North Building Hall of McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois). For more information about this product and other flat panel detectors, visit our new website www.rellhealthcare.com.
