Acquire Solutions to Store, Manipulate and Distribute Data and Imagery
Computed radiography (CR) systems have quickly become the prevalent means to digitally capture x-ray images. Recognized as an affordable digital imaging solution for radiography, CR systems are highly regarded by hospitals and diagnostic image centers for their efficiency and productivity. Instead of film, CR uses an imaging plate to capture X-rays as they pass through the patient which are scanned into a computer and digitized. Once the image is converted to data, it can be recorded on laser-printed film or transmitted and stored digitally, as well as manipulated or enhanced to show greater image contrast, sharper edges, or tissue only. CR software is used to enable image viewing with enhanced functions very similar to conventional image-processing software, such as contrast, brightness, and zoom. CR systems can function as a workstation to receive and process images over a network which provides physicians with the ability to share diagnostic images and adds the benefit of increased productivity.
CR Software and Dicom Conversion
Dicom Conversion consists of converting image data to DICOM format for integration into a filmless environment and is complemented with CR software. These solutions enable you to convert patient data to DICOM format for ease of access. Computed Radiography (CR) Systems utilize Dicom conversion to digitize and convert x-rays, CT scans and other medical imagery into formats that can be viewed on a computer monitor. Dicom Conversion allows doctors and other medical technicians to view scan results, facilitate electronic storage of the medical images on their computers and provides the capability to enhance the image.
Dicom Converters Provide Flexibility
The Dicom converter can be used to retrofit your existing radiology equipment and adds tremendous functionality to portable x-ray equipment. Digital RIS systems offer several other advantages as well; since images can be sent directly to the computer, there is no need for expensive, toxic chemical developers; exposure times are minimized, reducing those hazards to radiology technicians. Best of all, it makes it possible to store images digitally and easily share them with medical colleagues for on-line consultation.
RIS Systems offer an Economical Choice
Until now, such RIS Systems cost well over $100,000. Today, a CR System can be obtained for as little as a third of the cost. Dicom offers equipment by the leading manufacturers of technology and imaging equipment; in addition to Fuji CR Systems, we offer excellent equipment packages from the most reputable names in the industry, including Kodak, Radlink, Konica-Minolta and Agfa. We also carry well maintained pre-owned equipment from which your practice or small clinic and choose for even greater savings. Take a look at how CR Systems from Dicom can increase the quality of patient care at a lower cost today.
