Special report: DR rising

by Diana Bradley, Staff Writer | February 13, 2012
From the January/February issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

Digital technology in general has come of age for the global environment in every facet of life. People who never dreamed about operating electronic devices a couple of years ago are now reading books on a Kindle, or shopping, banking and Skype-ing on smartphones – and these devices usually get everything done with the touch of one button.

“People expect more done with less complexity,” says Sbordone. “They want to walk into a room, scratch their head for 30 seconds and figure out how to take an X-ray.”

Hand-in-hand with the trend in digital technology is portable or mobile adoption. The utilization of mobile devices, not only for quick-reads, but also for control systems and use within theaters is exploding, according to Robert Shaughnessy, chief technology officer of Circadence in Boulder, Colo.

“The pace of mobile adoption is faster and more accelerative than any other technology I have seen in 30 years,” he says. “Organizations of all sizes are struggling to adapt to that changing dynamic.”

At November’s Radiological Society of North America conference, there was a big buzz industry-wide about wireless detectors, detector weight and size, along with eliminating the cord. According to Fabrizio, these are the biggest influences in the shift to DR.

“The lines between CR and DR are blurring further with the simplification of DR to lightweight, wireless, battery-operated detectors in sizes that fit traditional cassette systems without modifications,” he says.

Staying ahead of the game
In today’s health care environment, imaging facilities are recognizing the importance of efficiency and doing more with less, making their imaging suites more productive and imaging more patients in less time. Looking ahead, the CR market’s biggest trial will be continuing to make a profit, as prices and volume rapidly descend.

“The efficiency of DR is compelling in today’s health care environment,” says Hurlock.
