Near field communication (NFC) is not a new technology. It's been used in everything from cellphones, to credit cards, to wristwatches. It's the technology that allows you to buy groceries with a tap from your card, exchange social contacts with a wave of your phone, and enter secure locations with a key fob or a name badge. Now, NFC has been integrated into digital radiography (DR) panels to further the workflow improvements already offered by DR.
If your imaging facility is hoping to use a single DR panel across multiple X-ray systems, a panel equipped with NFC not only makes it possible, it does so easily and quickly.
