Improved Workflow and Lower Cost of Ownership with Toshiba's New Single-Panel RADREX-i Wireless X-ray
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
To offer healthcare providers affordable X-ray technology that performs
efficient exams, Toshiba (News - Alert) America Medical Systems, Inc. is introducing a
new single-panel RADREX™-i Wireless digital radiographic (DR) X-ray
system (FDA cleared).
The RADREX-i Wireless single-panel is a new version of Toshiba's
digital, versatile and patient-friendly X-ray system. The wireless
panel, one of the lightest on the market, is easy to handle and improves
image quality, as it can be positioned more closely to the anatomy. It
is ideal for out-of-bucky work, including tabletop imaging of
extremities, such as hands, wrists, forearms and feet, and wheelchair-
and gurney-patient imaging.
The system also features RexProtect dose savings technology, RexSpeed
technology to automate workflow, and RexView™ with image preview to
enhance patient care by allowing technologists to make point-of-care
"The new single-panel RADREX-i Wireless is an example of Toshiba putting
customers first and providing flexible system designs to meet the needs
of healthcare providers and their patients," said David Sloop, director,
X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. "The single-panel wireless
solution lowers cost of ownership and increases workflow, responding to
the two main directives of healthcare reform."
Toshiba is introducing the new single-panel RADREX-i Wireless at this
year's Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in
Chicago, ec. 1-6, 2013 (Booth #7330, North Hall).
