Fuji gets first install for FCR 5000 reader

Fuji Medical Systems North America has installed three FCR 5000 CR readers at the Ambulatory Care Center at the University of California, Davis Medical Center. The first institution to purchase Fuji's latest CR release, UC Davis installed the readers as the initial step in moving to a filmless environment, according to the Stamford, CT-based company. As part of this first phase of PACS implementation, UC Davis will be installing two more readers in the emergency room and four readers in the in-patient radiology department by the end of the year.

The FCR 5000 can accommodate up to four imaging plates via a multi-level plate stacker and can support throughput of up to 148 imaging plates per hour, according to the firm. It offers both standard and high- resolution processing modes, and can network multiple examination terminals to allow entry of demographic and examination information in the x-ray room, according to Fuji.
