Has your medical facility not made any upgrades to your x-ray capabilities over the last five years or more? We can’t stress how strongly we recommend upgrading to DR panels. The x-ray machine is one of the most popular radiology devices in the industry, first introduced by father of radiology – Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. After that, advancements skyrocketed from Computed Radiography all the way to the latest big development – Digital Radiography.
Multiple medical practitioners have been burdened with scanning with reimbursement cuts for the past few years now. Unfortunately, they’re still concerned that upgrading from CR to flat-planet Digital Radiography is not cost-effective enough for their budget and patient volume. While these concerns are viable when it comes to the up-front price of CR readers compared to the price of a DR panel, the “initial cost” factor isn’t that damaging compared to the cost of ownership over the years from the point of purchase. The following information can be applied to show you why we think you need to upgrade your x-ray system to a DR panel.
The monetary factor.
When considering a purchase as significant as investing into an x-ray system, it is absolutely essential to think of the long run. The most convincing part of stepping from an older CR system to a newer model as compared to switching to a DR system is the significantly lower price tag. Currently, it has been determined that a quality CR reader is known for selling at half the cost of a new DR panel. However, while the price tag may seem lower, the reimbursement revenue is 7 to 20 percent less than the price difference. Ownership cost is important. However, over the years we have found that it also actually costs more to maintain and repair a CR reader.
The technological advantage.
With DR panels, you are guaranteed high image-quality, faster scan-time and throughput savings for an image preview of two seconds. In addition to faster scanning time and image quality, DR panels also don’t have moving parts. This means that when a service issue arises, the issues can typically be fixed through software configurations as opposed to CR readers which would need to wait for replacement parts to arrive.
