Radlink Introduces New Digital Imaging Products
Digital Imaging Products
Radlink announced the new family of hardware and software products they will be introducing to the marketplace at RSNA 2007, the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
Radlink has been garnering national attention in the healthcare imaging marketplace for the past two years due to the highly successful rollout of its flagship CR Pro machine. The CR Pro utilizes sealed fiber-optic laser technology to obtain high-resolution, higher-quality digital x-ray images at a substantially lower cost than other options in the marketplace.
This year, the company will be introducing a family of three distinct CR Pro machines, each designed for a specific profile, and a uniquely inexpensive PACS offering designed and priced specifically for the private practice environment.
"By drawing on our innovative technology and the depth of professional experience in the radiology industry that we have on our team, Radlink is expanding the availability of digital informatics for all levels of medicine through uniquely targeted engineering," said Thomas Hacking, chairman and chief executive officer of Radlink. "This process eliminates various hardware and software that just isn't needed and only adds cost at the clinical level, which in turn enables us to deliver this new family of machines and our new PACS offering at costs well below the norm in the industry."
According to Hacking, the new products to be unveiled at RSNA 2007 are the following:
CR Pro 2000
This new machine features a top-quality Computed Radiography (CR) reader that is specifically designed for two markets: the OEM market, for use as a CR appliance with digital radiography, as well as distributed applications for end users with smaller budgets. The CR Pro 2000 is engineered with an upgrade path that provides all of the capabilities of the entire Radlink family of imaging systems.
CR Pro 2100
This is Radlink's core CR product, based on a proprietary "sealed fiber optics" design that maximizes transfer efficiency in private physician offices where low-power x-ray equipment is common. This breakthrough machine delivers better resolution to clinicians for a much lower cost than its competitors, and is a truly self-contained system that requires less maintenance and enjoys a longer life than other products in the market.
CR Pro 2200
The CR Pro 2200 is a true achievement in the industry and will make noise in 2008. In a practice with multiple physicians, all digital images must be stored in a secure, HIPAA compliant database for future access. This requires practices to double their investment in digital imaging by purchasing an additional Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS). The CR Pro 2200 turns this model upside down by bundling a robust PACS with up to 10 Terabytes of secure storage inside a self-contained Radlink CR system with image quality and speed that equals any other CR system available. This new offering is by far the best value available for full-service digital imaging at any private practice or small imaging operation.
