"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.
