September 29, 2017 — Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A. Inc., announced that Sovah Health – Martinsville (formerly Memorial Hospital of Martinsville & Henry County) in Martinsville, Va., has outfitted its radiology department with the RadPro Mobile 40kW Flex Plus digital radiography (DR) system. Seeking to upgrade its older devices and rectify excessive downtime issues, Sovah Health - Martinsville, with the assistance of Radon Medical Imaging, an authorized Virtual Imaging dealer, chose the RadPro Mobile 40kW Flex Plus System. According to the customer, the decision to acquire this specific system was due to the device’s reputation for consistent uptime, high-quality imaging and mobility.
According to Sovah Health - Martinsville, among the features that factored into its decision to acquire the system is the ability to view images on the mobile unit itself instead of requiring technicians to return to their radiology department to transmit images, as well as its ease-of-use and wireless functionality. Additionally, Sovah Health – Martinsville has cited the ability to interchange select Canon CXDI wireless flat panel detectors on the device as a strong selling point.
“We are extremely excited to now have the RadPro 40kW Flex Plus System as part of our radiology operation,” said Teresa K. Merricks, director of radiology at Sovah Health - Martinsville. “As a facility that is chest pain-accredited, we have very strict standards that our radiography devices must meet and found that this particular device checked all the boxes. Virtual Imaging devices have a tremendous reputation in the healthcare industry and our X-ray staff couldn’t be happier with our choice.”
Outfitted with a telescopic column and featuring fast processing times provided by a Canon CXDI- 401C, 701C or 801C wireless detector to quickly capture high-quality diagnostic images, the digital X-ray system includes the Enhanced Workflow Package (a combination of software and hardware) to help healthcare professionals save time by customizing workflows with existing hospital information systems (HIS)/radiology information systems (RIS) and removing unnecessary steps. The Enhanced Workflow Package allows users to complete routine imaging tasks from the mobile device, eliminating the need to access healthcare information systems from a dedicated workstation.
The RadPro Mobile 40kW Flex Plus’s small width makes it easy to maneuver in restricted spaces and corridors, while large wheels make mounting small steps easy. Featuring a patented wireless distributed antennae system that increases the wireless range 40 percent over a single access point systems and lead crystal batteries designed to retain power longer than acid batteries, this digital X-ray system can help improve flexibility and efficiency for nearly any healthcare practitioner, according to Virtual Imaging.
