Edward-Elmhurst Health Chooses RadPRO® OMNERA® Digital Radiographic System for New Facility

RadPRO® OMNERA® 400T Manual-Positioning Digital Radiographic System Supports Growing Integrated Health System by Delivering High-Quality Imaging Capability

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 21, 2016 – Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, is proud to announce that Edward-Elmhurst Health has selected the RadPRO1 OMNERA 400T Manual-Positioning Digital Radiographic System for its radiology needs at its newest outpatient site in Hinsdale, Illinois. This manual-positioning system helps provide high throughput needed in healthcare imaging departments through a high-quality, lightweight design that helps reduce the demands placed on radiographic technologists.

As one of the larger integrated health systems in Illinois, Edward-Elmhurst requires a robust and reliable imaging solution for all of its locations. Having used Canon CXDI Digital Radiography Systems for the last five years, Edward-Elmhurst chose the RadPRO OMNERA 400T System to meet these needs and provide the high-quality imaging they expect as they expand to the new location.

"With the introduction of our new facility, it was important that we chose a trustworthy system that would provide us with the capabilities required to meet the needs of our patient population," said William Wallin, RTR, radiology manager, Elmhurst Hospital. "Our newest outpatient facility was over an $18 million investment for us—and throughout the facility, we chose only the highest quality products to serve our community—and the RadPRO OMNERA System fit the bill."
