As consumers in the 21st century, we know that the best value doesn't always come from owning something. Sometimes we just need to use it for a little while. Instead of buying DVDs, we subscribe to a service that streams movies. Instead of buying a beach house, we book an Air BnB.

And, when the decision to own really is the best value, we love to "try it before we buy it". Amazon Prime, anyone? How about Carvana, Sephora, or Warby Parker?

The great news for clinics, hospitals, and imaging centers is that you can take advantage of the high quality of Carestream portable X-ray systems without the long-term commitment and cost of purchasing through an equipment rental. Keep reading to see if renting might be a good fit for your needs and budget.

You'll have higher image quality, faster scanning, lower costs- and you can keep your analog X-ray system. If you're no stranger to the benefits of DR, welcome back to the market!

In either case, DR panels are more affordable in 2020 than ever. Keep reading to see commonly available DR panel options and the current average price range you can expect to spend on each.
