Georgia Clinic Converts to Digital Imaging

The Carestream DRX system

September 20, 2010 — Emory Clark-Holder Clinic in LaGrange, Ga., is converting from radiographic film to a digital imaging workflow. This multi-specialty practice with 28 physicians and 13 nurse practitioners conducts 20,000 imaging exams a year and serves a large rural area.

As part of its transition, Emory purchased a Carestream DRX-1 system and two Carestream Elite CR systems. The DRX-1 system is being installed to provide high-quality imaging along with optimized throughput in the clinic's primary general radiology room.

“We have a very diverse imaging environment, since our clinic serves general practitioners and specialists ranging from interventional cardiologists to general surgeons, oncologists and gastroenterologists,” said Eric Blackman, the clinic’s director of operations. “The DRX-1 system offers the extremely high image quality required by our physicians. It also provides immediate image review and the positioning flexibility offered by a thin, wireless detector that is the same size as our film cassettes.”

The DRX-1 system will also perform long-length exams, he added.

One Elite CR system will serve two additional X-ray rooms through the use of a remote operations panel in the second room. The second Elite CR system will be installed in an affiliated primary care practice in West Point, Ga.
