Upgrading to digital radiography has become one of the biggest priorities for healthcare facilities across the United States. Our clients often raise various concerns about upgrading to DR equipment, which include financial concerns, the need for training, and looking for a service provider who can best serve their needs.
These questions are understandable—if you’re considering a full overhaul of your existing imaging equipment, then you need to plan for every obstacle that comes your way.
ExamVue has been serving the medical industry with diagnostic imaging equipment for the past four decades.We’re a leading supplier of DR solutions for various healthcare providers and we say that all of these concerns are easily resolved. To that end, this article will attempt to answer some frequently asked questions to address some of your concerns with your upgrade to digital radiography
1. Is DR Imaging Equipment Expensive?
Not at all. If you think you’ll have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a digital X-ray upgrade, that’s a misconception you should let go of. While a complete brand-new digital X-ray system can cost as much as c$125,000–$235,000, there are plenty of retrofit solutions from ExamVue that cost less than half of that amount.
At ExamVue, we can fit our DR flat panel detectors onto your existing equipment for a cost of around$40,000—significantly less expensive than other options in the market. These retrofit solutions perform equally as well as a complete system upgrade without a huge price tag. As such, you should set all of your financial concerns aside.
2. Will You Have To Retrain Your Staff To Operate DR Equipment?
Some retraining is likely required to get the most out of your DR equipment. As with any upgrade in technology, there will be some functionality that may take some getting used to. However, our image acquisition softwarehas been designed to minimize the need for retraining with a very simple UI/UX framework. It offers a wide range of user-friendly functions that will help you get the most out of the software.
3. Availability of Technical Support
The availability and usefulness of technical support relies on who your equipment provider is. Each manufacturer uses different customer support protocols, which the customer has to judge for themselves.
