Compact and lightweight table top unit provides facilities affordable upgrade to digital X-ray
Stamford Conn., January 23, 2012 - FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to introduce the FCR Prima T, the latest addition to the FCR Prima family designed to eliminate any existing barriers to the adoption of digital x-ray. Created specifically to meet the x-ray needs of low volume private practices, in the market for a compact, table-top digital x-ray system, the Prima T comes complete with a CR reader, an electronic viewing workstation and an archiving system, enabling facilities to quickly and easily transition to a softcopy imaging environments.
The system’s compacted size and advanced features are the highlight of Fujifilm’s latest system and provide small practices with digital x-ray. “The FCR Prima T is the ultimate digital x-ray system for small, private practice facilities looking to upgrade to digital at an attractive price point,” says Eddie Massetti, Manager, Distributor Sales at Fujifilm. “It’s one of the smallest table top system on the market (22” x 21.5” x 15”) enabling one person to install and transport. This compact design eliminates the need for designated floor space and at just 86 lbs, it can be installed on nearly any desk or table top.”
The inventor of digital x-ray, Fujifilm has years of experience in delivering renowned image quality and image processing that are available with the FCR Prima T. The table top digital x-ray system is customized for each specialty practice to provide convenient access to the specific exams a practice relies on most. And by offering a wider dynamic range than film, the FCR Prima T is more forgiving to over- and under- exposures so repeat exams are greatly reduced, saving both staff time and patient time, and virtually eliminating unnecessary re-exposure to radiation.
Lastly, in addition to the diagnostic benefits of digital x-ray, there are also long-term financial and “green” benefits that facilities will immediately benefit from upon implementation. The cost of consumables is nearly eliminated, as soft copy viewing and storage replace the need to buy and dispose of chemicals. There is also no need to purchase and store film, allowing rooms previously devoted to file cabinets and dark rooms to now be converted into more profitable office space such as an extra exam room.
