Lee Memorial Health System Chooses RadPRO® Mobile 40kW Digital X-Ray System for New Children’s Hospital


MELVILLE, N.Y., September 19, 2016 – Virtual Imaging, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, is proud to announce that Lee Memorial Health System has selected the RadPRO®1 40kW Mobile Digital X-Ray System for its radiology needs at the new Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. This mobile digital x-ray system is like having a radiography room on wheels. Fast processing times will help the new state-of-the-art, patient centric and family-friendly center to capture high-quality images in routine bedside examinations, as well as in challenging trauma applications.

According to Lee Memorial Health System, it is the largest public health system in the state of Florida; and as such it requires a robust and reliable imaging solution for all of its locations. For more than three years Lee Memorial Health System has depended on RadPRO mobile x-ray systems to fulfill the imaging needs of several of its healthcare facilities. Lee Memorial Health System chose the RadPRO Mobile 40kW Digital X-ray System to meet these needs and provide the high-quality imaging needed for the expansion to its new children’s hospital.

“In opening this new children’s hospital, we needed a product that could offer clear images and flexibility, as well as a minimal learning curve for our healthcare professionals. We chose the RadPRO Mobile 40kW Digital X-ray System for its ability to provide us with the quality of imaging we’ve come to expect from our Canon detectors and the ease-of-use we’ve experienced with our existing RadPRO radiography equipment,” said Kristen Hickey, director of Imaging Services, Golisano Children’s Hospital. “Before purchasing our RadPRO mobile x-ray systems, we were performing diagnostic radiography exams using Computed Radiography (CR). With the help of the RadPRO systems, we were able to smoothly transition to Digital Radiography (DR), and elevate the level of diagnostic imaging that we provide to the community. This transition resulted in an X- ray dose reduction to the patient, and helped to increase our workflow productivity as compared to using CR technology.”

In addition to providing flexibility in patient positioning and the ability to manage or manipulate images at the patient’s bedside, fast processing times make it easy to capture high-quality diagnostic images for routine diagnosis or trauma.
