FUJIFILM Converts Altru Health System to Digital X-Ray

June 29, 2007 - FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA Inc. recently announced that Altru Health System, the second largest Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) in North Dakota, has selected FUJIFILM Digital Radiography (FDR) and Computed Radiography (FCR) for its transition from film to digital X-ray technology at its flagship hospital in Grand Forks, N.D.

Altru Hospital has installed three of Fujifilm's Dual SpeedSuite DR systems - one each in its orthopedics department, main radiology department and outpatient clinic. A fully integrated digital room replacement, the Dual SpeedSuite pairs the high-speed Fuji DR table and upright systems with top-of-the-line x-ray equipment for a seamless, functionally-integrated digital room. The Dual SpeedSuite offers a number of advantages including high throughput, intuitive controls, and features to meet the requirements of bariatric imaging.

In addition to the three Dual SpeedSuite DR systems, Altru also purchased 12 FCR Carbon systems which have been strategically placed throughout the facility, enabling the hospital to implement a distributed workflow and eliminating the need for technologists to spend costly time transporting cassettes to central locations for processing. FCR Carbon is the smallest, fully featured CR system available, making it easy to site in areas where space is at a premium. The intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care unit and surgery are among the locations where Altru has installed FCR Carbon.
