Nowadays Digital Radiography becomes trend in veterinary medicine. The Computed Digital Radiography able to charge couple devices, direct digital radiography, faster image processing time, fix radiographs and elimination of the costs and hazards of film and processing chemicals.
The Universal Ultrasound Inc., has released a new Veterinary computed radiography. Featured technologies: Remote image acquisition, Integrates with any existing radiography equipment, Ideal for: hospitals already owning x-ray equipment, mixed and large animal practices that want to share digital capabilities, Nearly half the cost of CCD or Flat Panel systems, Best image quality, Up to 94 images per hour, Integrates with MyPACS®, Customizable user interface, and DICOM Compliant.
With CR systems, the film, intensifying screen, and cassette used in traditional radiography systems are replaced with an imaging plate. With CR the overall feel and workflow of acquiring an image is very similar to traditional film. As is the case with film, the CR cassette is placed in the bucky and an exposure is made. CR can easily and effortlessly “retrofit” on to existing radiography machines. It means in order to use a CR system in your practice you can just use the digital imaging plate instead of your cassettes. You don’t need to purchase a new x-ray machine and installation costs are minimal.
Time savings may be possible through decreased repeats but the workflow is essentially similar to film radiography. CR systems also allow for an easy method of mobile or cross table radiography, important to some veterinarians working with large animals or exotic animals.
Now, practices of any size can benefit from the exceptional image quality, speed and flexibility of a Fujifilm Computed Radiography system. Benefits include virtual elimination of repeat exams and lost films, lower storage and management costs plus more options to enhance images.
This Computed Radiography works with FujiFilm who offers Image Intelligence. Fujifilm’s proven technology optimizes images for display with software that meets the specific needs of veterinary practices. Images have excellent soft-tissue detail. Contact the manufacturer.
