FCR Prima digital X-ray system
July 21, 2009 - The FCR Prima digital X-ray system from FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA Inc. was created specifically to meet the X-ray needs of low volume private practices, and is now available.
Designed to eliminate any existing barriers to the adoption of digital X-ray, the Fuji Computed Radiography (FCR) Prima comes complete with a compact CR reader, an electronic viewing workstation, and an archiving system, enabling facilities to quickly and easily transition to a softcopy imaging environment.
The FCR Prima is a complete image acquisition-to-archive solution that provides private practices with the image quality they need in a compact size designed for their office space, and delivered at an economical price point. It is packaged with the FCRView, which combines a softcopy viewing system and digital archive system so facilities can initiate and preview exposures, process and print studies, and back up patient data from one workstation. And with the new FCRView Client Workstation software, image viewing is enabled on up to four additional workstations within the practice. All the functionality comes in a compact size of just 23.6-in. W x 15.7-in. D x 30.7-in. H, making it the smallest footprint of any available competitive system. The FCR Prima is also weighs nearly 30 percent less than Fujifilm’s current system.
Lastly, in addition to the diagnostic benefits of digital x-ray, there are also long-term financial and “green” benefits that facilities will immediately benefit from upon implementation. The cost of consumables is eliminated, as soft copy viewing and storage replace the need to buy and dispose of chemicals. There is also no need to purchase and store film, allowing rooms previously devoted to file cabinets and dark rooms to now be converted into more profitable office space such as an extra exam room.
