Digital radiography road show to tour Scotland

14 December 2005

Xograph Imaging Systems has launched a series of Digital Radiography (DR) road-shows starting in Scotland in the New Year. The aim is to demonstrate the key benefits of ‘going digital’ to radiology departments.

The hands-on road-show will visit Scottish hospitals to demonstrate operational equipment so that radiology staff can ‘test-drive’ it in the their own environment. Technology available for staff to view includes the Canon CXDI range of portable flat panel detectors acclaimed for mobility and instant imaging, plus Xograph’s innovative flat screen medical display systems that provide high-resolution digital image quality.

Digital Radiography increases patient throughput by speeding up the examination process and reducing waiting times. Digital X-ray images are produced in less than 3 seconds after exposure and can be networked across the hospital for rapid diagnosis and even onward transmission to other sites.

The compact size and lightweight design of the flat panel detector also enables it to be used outside the normal confines of the radiology department — in trauma, triage, intensive care and paediatric situations.

Xograph’s Territory Manager for Scotland, Steve Taylor, will be on-hand to answer questions and provide detailed information on the benefits that portable DR technology can offer users, patients and the hospitals as a whole.
