GE Healthcare, a division of General Electric Company, announced that Beloit Memorial Hospital has chosen Optima XR640 digital radiographic system for its expanded emergency department.
The Optima XR640 delivers digital productivity and application flexibility. It includes tools which help doctors save time while maintaining outstanding image quality. Auto Positioning is one tool which allows the technologist to set up exams quickly by pre programming up to 40 exam positions. “With Auto Positioning, the technologist can simply push a button to choose a position for a specific exam,” says Jacobsen. “This allows our staff to focus on the patient – who is our number one priority.”
Digital systems are designed to capture X-ray images on computers. The exams are faster and provide high-quality images, with radiation dose efficiency. These system help physicians see injuries clearly and abnormalities and confidently prescribe appropriate treatment.
“The Optima XR640 offers digital image quality and digital productivity,” said David Widmann, GE’s General Manager for Global Radiography and Fluoroscopy. “Its moveable detector allows fast and easy positioning, key to maintaining patient comfort and safety in trauma situations.”
“We are excited about the Optima XR640 and the latest technology that we will be bringing to the community with this hospital expansion,” added Jacobsen. “By offering this technology we continue our tradition of putting the latest tools to work to benefit patients and families in our community.”
