Quantum Medical Imaging has a new line of digital imaging systems. The Q-Rad-Digital series, showing at the RSNA meeting in Chicago, offers three digital imaging system configurations, each designed to meet varying requirements and cost constraints of hospitals, imaging centers, and clinics, according to the company.

The Q-Rad-D is a traditional two-detector system with a direct digital imaging panel in both the elevating table and wall stand. The Q-Rad-IQ is a dual-detector system with a direct digital imaging receptor in the elevating table and a second digital imaging receptor situated within a tilting and rotating wall stand, which is positioned on a horizontal track system behind the table.

"The Q-Rad-IQ design is suited to emergency rooms and high-end radiology facilities that want to go direct digital but also need the ability to do specialized exams as well as cross-table lateral and decubitis exams," said president and CEO Scott Matovich. "It will greatly increase patient comfort, while improving the way technologists conduct diagnostic x-ray exams in trauma situations."

The third system, the Q-Rad-SQ, features a single digital detector located within a tilting and rotating wall stand. It uses a mobile elevating float-top table.

"The Q-Rad-SQ brings a solution to the rural hospital, imaging center, orthopedic facility, or clinic emergency treatment facility that would like to go digital but has limited funds to accommodate their needs," Matovich said. "This system will improve the quality and efficiency of x-ray exams, providing technologists with better control."
