Many of our readers, friends, and contacts across the imaging field have heard about the CMS reimbursement cuts to film processing that will come into effect in 2017. As a result, we’ve been flooded with requests from people looking to update their equipment stables ahead of the cuts. Many of them are sensing an even […]

As FPD options become more available, anyone considering the purchase of a C-arm is increasingly likely to be confronted with the big decision: analog or digital?

DR panels are becoming an increasingly affordable option to extend the life of existing analog X-ray equipment and improve its performance. Even so, as with any up-and-coming product, after the tech questions and the pricing questions are answered, questions about the ownership experience arise.

Low-Field Open MRI vs. Closed MRI Solution By Steve Rentz Underpowered, underutilized, but frequently misunderstood, open MRI systems are under-appreciated here in the USA and virtually ignored in other “developed” countries. Many radiologists don’t want to read from open MRIs, governments and insurers don’t want to pay for them, and the appetite for higher and higher […]

When it comes to imaging equipment, today’s urologist has options. Specifically: a mobile C-arm and surgical table with a monitoring system, or a dedicated, fixed urology suite. There isn’t a “right” answer when it comes to this decision – both options have their pros and cons – but, depending on the needs at your individual facility, there probably is a “best” answer.
