KLAS Mobile X-ray Market Shimadzu Digital Radiography

August 21, 2014 — Shimadzu is facing stiff competition as other players in the market narrow the performance gap and widen their provider loyalty bases. KLAS' 2014 digital radiography (DR) mobile report looks at how vendors are performing side by side, why some are edging ahead, and what providers see as the gaps.

"Providers have growing needs that are now being met by both niche vendors that are delivering innovations and enterprise vendors that are introducing new products that provide a complete DR X-ray solution."

For this report, more than 180 providers weighed in on Canon, Carestream, Fuji, GE, Philips, Shimadzu and Siemens.
