Park Avenue Family Practice Upgrades to Digital Radiography

October 4, 2010 — Park Avenue Family Practice of Yonkers, N.Y., is adding a U-Arm digital radiography (DR) system to support its increased X-ray imaging volume.

The facility has performed a high volume of between 40 and 50 X-ray exams daily. During the past 12 months, this volume grew considerably, leading to the group's purchase of a Viztek DR system. Prior to the installation, the imaging site was using a Viztek computed radiography (CR) system connected to a Viztek Opal-RAD PACS.

For the transition to DR, the X-ray room was upgraded with Viztek’s compact U-Arm solution. The new system fits easily and conveniently into a standard radiology room with 8-foot ceilings. With the transition to DR, the facility will be capable of handling a significantly higher volume of X-ray exams than with its CR system.
