3DISC Unveils New Generation of CR Readers at RSNA 2011

December 19, 2011 –– 3DISC, a manufacturer of digital imaging solutions, unveiled its next-generation FireCR+ Medical and FireCR+ Veterinary Readers at the 2011 Radiological Society of North America meeting in Chicago Nov. 27–Dec. 2.  The FireCR+ Readers feature significantly improved image quality, increased stability and reduced maintenance requirements, building upon 3DISC’s unique first-generation FireCR technology.  

“We are pleased to introduce our new FireCR+ Readers to the radiology and veterinary communities following the successful launch of our core systems last year,” said Sigrid Smitt-Jeppesen, chief executive officer of 3DISC Americas.  “The versatile, flexible FireCR+ Readers offer several important upgrades, including technology improvements that result in greatly enhanced detail and resolution.  We continue to focus on providing busy hospitals, clinics and medical and veterinary practices with high-quality, fast and compact CR [computed tomography] systems for use in many different environments—giving users the flexibility that lets them grow.”

The FireCR+ Readers are built on pioneering technology that increases productivity with a throughput of up to 70 plates per hour, providing crisp, clear images for viewing, archiving and distribution.  FireCR+ products offer full digital imaging and communications in medicine (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 advanced QuantorMed and QuantorVet Imaging Software.

According to Thomas Weldingh, chief executive officer of 3DISC Europe, the FireCR+ product line features the unique ability to upgrade to higher speeds with a simple smart card update, giving users flexibility to start with an entry?level reader and increase productivity as their needs change.  “Customers can select a FireCR+ Reader that meets their current needs and budgets, and then scale up as imaging volume increases,” Weldingh said.  “This feature provides maximum flexibility for busy hospitals, clinics and specialty practices, and ensures that their technology investment is protected.”  

The compact, lightweight FireCR+ Readers are designed to fit into any environment, with a wall-mount option for facilities with limited space availability.  They also are ideal for use with mobile X-ray equipment that is transported within departments and hospitals and between geographic locations—for example in mobile imaging units that serve the large-animal veterinary market.  

Smitt-Jeppesen said that flexibility is critical for radiology and veterinary customers today.  “Users have told us that they want flexibility in terms of imaging speed, upgradability, cost, portability and the option to mount the device on a wall or place it on a cart or tabletop,” she said.  “Other devices on the market can do some of these things, but 3DISC provides the only solutions that address all of these key priorities.”
