January 21, 2013 — 3Disc, a manufacturer of digital imaging solutions, debuted next-generation FireCR+M medical and FireCR+M veterinary readers at the 98th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago in November 2012. FireCR+M readers are capable of scanning multiple cassette sizes, while offering the same high-image quality, speed and performance offered with the rest of the company’s CR (computed radiography) reader product family.
The FireCR+ medical and veterinary product lines offer a wide range of models and options, including a variety of imaging speeds that can be upgraded in the field. The new readers are tabletop systems that support a full range of the most-used cassette sizes — 18 cm x 24 cm, 24 cm x 30 cm, and 35 cm x 43 cm (14 inches x 17 inches). The company also will continue to offer FireCR+ medical and veterinary readers, which can be placed on a tabletop or wall mounted, and support two universal cassette sizes.
“Our customers in the medical and veterinary imaging fields are not ‘one-size-fits-all,’ so we recognized that it was important to provide a full range of options,” said Sigrid Smitt-Jeppesen, CEO of 3Disc Americas. “With 3Disc, there is no need for customers to compromise on features and functionality. They can select a system that meets their exact needs and budgets — and also have flexibility that lets them grow.”
“Customers can select a 3Disc reader that meets their current needs and budgets, and then scale up as their imaging volume increases,” added Thomas Weldingh, CEO of 3Disc Europe. “Our customers appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing their technology investment is protected.”
The FireCR+ and FireCR+M medical and veterinary readers are built on technology that increases productivity, with a throughput of up to 70 plates per hour, providing crisp, clear images for viewing, archiving and distribution. The compact systems offer full DICOM connectivity and allow users to capture high-quality images of any body part. Imaging parameters are optimized, resulting in digital images that can be enhanced, enlarged, duplicated and sent to any location in seconds with no loss of resolution. All imaging functions are performed with 3Disc’s QuantorMed+ and QuantorVet+ imaging software.
