Viztek Introduces Easy Install, Plug-and-Play DR Demonstration Unit

November 23, 2011 — Viztek’s new no-wire plug-and-play demonstration system for its retrofit digital radiography (DR) unit enables customers to fully experience the product’s high performance benefits in their own facilities. Unlike most portable demonstration systems, it does not require any complicated connections or rewiring of existing X-ray generators. 

It eliminates the need for purchasers to make time-consuming site visits and promises to accommodate the customer within the evaluation process. Demo units are available to all authorized Viztek distributors.

The system consists of the tethered ViZion DR panel, laptop computer and specialized DR acquire interface. Sites can experience the product’s ease of use, ultra-fast workflow and high image quality for themselves without leaving their practice. The panel allows for demonstration installation without the need to open the X-ray console or tap into the generator.

The demo unit allows potential customers to see and feel the difference offered with cesium tethered technology. Cesium is known to offer the lowest radiation dose while providing the highest quality images.

”Viztek’s nationwide dealer network is eligible to purchase the demonstration units that they can quickly install on a trial basis in a customer’s existing X-ray room,” explains Steve Deaton, vice president of sales for Viztek. “If the customer decides to purchase the system, the unit is permanently and more formally installed into the X-ray room. The final installation requires more wiring, but is done only after the customer has evaluated the image quality and DR speed benefits. The landscape is changing and DR units are more affordable than ever, converting CR installations in all types of facilities.”

The system will be on display in Viztek’s booth at RSNA 2011
