OpalRADs’ advanced image processing offers unsurpassed image quality and a full range of image review and processing tools. This Straight Arm DR System has become the go-to system for facilities looking to upgrade or those under new construction.
Relocating a GE Prodigy Lunar Dexa can be a difficult task. At 8′ long and requiring precise calibration for proper functionality, thorough planning and great care are needed to complete the job successfully on the first attempt. Before the the deinstall process begins the system is tested and verified to be a fully functional and reliable DEXA scanner. Next comes removing all of the panels from the scanner bed as well as fully removing the x-ray detector arm from the body of the system. Carefully padding and securing the x-ray detector along with the rail mounted tube and collimator assembly for safe transport is crucial. After disassembling the Scanner and bundling all acquire station components and cables. With our system relocation experience and a U-Haul rental we were able to successfully uninstall, transport and reinstall this bone density system in a single day. Full system recalibration and staff applications training was completed by day two of the Bone Density System Relocation.
Recently Southern States Imaging, Inc. had the great fortune of working with Savannah Surgical Group in Savannah, GA. We were successful in assisting them throughout the purchase, installation and training of a brand new digital X-Ray detector system. The Viztek dual DR Leggera imaging system offers both a fixed DR and wireless DR panel. Both of the panels utilize the newest Cesium technology which offers the lowest dosage of radiation possible to patients and highest possible resolution. By upgrading from their previous reconditioned X Ray scanner they have decreased the patient radiation dose by up to 30%! The Leggera digital X-Ray system also offers a superior image with accelerated processing time. This allows Savannah Surgical a faster turnaround and high quality image resolution.
