August 1, 2007 - Illinois Valley Community Hospital (Peru, IL) has ordered two Carestream Health digital radiography systems: a KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 3000 and a KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 7500 System.
“The company’s DR systems came out on top in our comparison of image quality, speed and ease of use as well as service and support,” said Cindy Herrmann, Illinois Valley’s Administrative Director of Diagnostic Imaging. “The consistent user interface between the new DR systems and our existing KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR systems will help improve staff productivity and reduce training time. The company’s history of outstanding service at our facility was also an important factor in our decision.”
The hospital also purchased the KODAK DIRECTVIEW Capture Link System, which links DIRECTVIEW CR and DR systems. It allows for the integration of CR images with DR studies and cassette processing and image review at any CR system.
The hospital will use the compact DR 3000 system to conduct X-ray exams on its ambulatory patients, and will use the DR 7500 system to capture exams for trauma patients, according to Herrmann. The DR 7500 will be configured as a single-detector system with an elevating table while the DR 3000 system will employ a floor-mounted stand.
Once the systems are installed, the hospital expects to handle its growing patient workload with just two X-ray rooms and re-configure its two existing additional X-ray rooms for other purposes, Herrmann added.
