Toshiba America Medical Systems has introduced RADREX-i Standard, a digital radiographic (DR) system, to provide technologists with a straightforward, easy-to-use system.

RADREX-i Standard was designed to improve workflow for radiology departments by offering simplified components, including ergonomic, user-friendly controls on the overhead X-ray tube, as well as advanced image processing for increased diagnostic confidence, Toshiba said.

The RADREX-i Standard system allows facilities to stay competitive by replacing film or CR cassette processing with a digital system to increase productivity and diagnostic accuracy.

The system also offers the flexibility to perform out-of-bucky work with a 14”x17” tethered portable detector, allowing radiology departments to image gurney and wheelchair patients, as well as perform cross-table imaging and image patients while standing.

The RADREX-i Standard includes a 500-pound table weight limit, a 300 kHU X-ray tube and an 80-kW generator, allowing hospitals to image a variety of patients quickly.

Toshiba Marketing and Strategic Development vice president Doug Ryan said that the RADREX-i Standard was designed with simplified components and streamlined features to make it the perfect solution for technologists. Facilities replacing film or CR cassette processing with digital imaging will significantly increase productivity and their ability to obtain high-quality images quickly.

Toshiba America Medical Systems markets, sells, distributes and services diagnostic imaging systems, and coordinates clinical diagnostic imaging research for all modalities in the US.
