Norton Healthcare Selects The RadPRO® OMNERA® 400T Manual-Positioning Digital Radiographic System, Equipped With Canon DR Technology

MELVILLE, N.Y., August 2, 2016 – Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Norton Healthcare has purchased the RadPRO®1 OMNERA® 400T Manual-Positioning Digital Radiography System for its Norton Audubon Hospital. As one of the largest health care systems in the Louisville, Kentucky area, Norton Healthcare is a leader in serving adult and pediatric patients throughout Louisville Metro, providing care at more than 210 locations throughout Greater Louisville and Southern Indiana.

Interstate Imaging, LLC, an authorized Virtual Imaging dealer, assisted Norton with the selection of the RadPRO OMNERA 400T Digital Radiography System. This system offered advanced imaging with a minimal learning curve since Norton already had a fleet of RadPRO® Mobile Digital X-ray Systems equipped with Canon detectors and software.

“In recommending the RadPRO OMNERA 400T Digital Radiography System, we were confident that the system would provide a smooth transition, minimal learning curve and consistency with the hospital’s current Canon detectors and RadPRO® mobile devices,” said Bob Bedwell, vice president, Interstate Imaging,LLC.

“We understand that the healthcare industry has many options in selecting a digital radiography system, and we are honored that our products were chosen by the seasoned and knowledgeable healthcare professionals at Norton,” said Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. and president, Virtual Imaging, Inc.
