New DR Panel Protects Capital Equipment Investments

March 16, 2010 - As with any new capital equipment purchase, one has to consider maintenance and the overall cost of ownership. To protect your investment, many facilities place almost as much importance in the features that protect and maintain the equipment as the core equipment itself.

For digital radiography systems, which experience high-utilization, the new DR Panel Protector is designed to protect the PaxScan 4336R portable DR panel systems manufactured by Varian. The protector, which costs $689, is placed over the digital panel when capturing weight-bearing standing feet images.

The protector keeps the weight off the DR panel, preventing extreme stresses on the DR panel, which often leads to serious damage. The faceplate is made of polycarbonate engineered to support patients weighing up to 500 pounds. The device is X-ray lucent, allowing the X-rays to pass through the DR Panel Protector with no significant absorption or scattering.

Clear Image Devices LLC (CiD) makes panel protectors for all CR systems as well as DR systems offered by Canon, Philips, GE Healthcare, Siemens, Shimadzu, Carestream, and Varian.
