Dual Panel DR Upgrades.pngHave you ever heard the saying, "Two heads are better than one"? In terms of efficiency in your X-ray suite, the same is true of DR flat panel detectors.

Many facilities have already taken the step to upgrade their existing X-ray room with a DR panel for reasons ranging from image quality to avoiding reimbursement cuts. To add maximum throughput potential on top of those benefits, a dual-panel setup is worth considering.

The video below will walk you through what a dual-panel digital X-ray upgrade looks like as well as a few perks of going digital with a DR panel retrofit.

The Takeaway

If you're looking into DR flat panel detectors to improve the efficiency of your X-ray suite, a dual-panel setup is the ultimate tool for the job. Not only do you have the near-instant acquisition and processing time of direct digital imaging, you also minimize the time involved with repositioning the detector between table and wall stand. If your facility serves a high volume of patients, this upgrade offers the highest potential for meeting that demand and creating flexibility in your schedule.

Whether you choose one or two DR panels, tethered or wireless, standard or pediatric sizes, our team is ready to help you find the best digital X-ray upgrade for your needs. Use the buttons below to request a free, on-site demo or to tell us about your project and get a quote.
