Sovah Health – Martinsville Upgrades DR Capabilities with Virtual Imaging Device

MELVILLE, N.Y., September 28, 2017 – Offering dependable and versatile digital radiography solutions to healthcare professionals, Virtual Imaging, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., has announced that Sovah Health – Martinsville (formerly Memorial Hospital of Martinsville & Henry County) in Martinsville, Virginia has outfitted its radiology department with the RadPRO®1 Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System. Seeking to upgrade its older devices and rectify excessive downtime issues, Sovah Health - Martinsville, with the assistance of Radon Medical Imaging, an authorized Virtual Imaging dealer that provides equipment and solutions to healthcare providers, chose the RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS System. According to the customer, the decision to acquire this specific system was due to the device’s industry reputation for consistent uptime, high-quality imaging and mobility.

“When choosing a digital radiography device, it is important that medical facilities take into account all factors in order to meet their needs and to help them provide their patients with the quality of care that they deserve,” said Tsuneo Imai, vice president and general manager, Healthcare Solutions Division, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. and president, Virtual Imaging, Inc. “The acquisition of the RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS System by Sovah Health - Martinsville was the result of a successful collaboration among Virtual Imaging, our authorized dealer Radon Medical Imaging, and the customer. Virtual Imaging is delighted that this particular device addresses specific areas of need for Sovah Health - Martinsville and we are honored to consider them a valued customer.”

According to Sovah Health - Martinsville, among the features that factored into its decision to acquire the RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS System is the ability to view images on the mobile unit itself instead of requiring technicians to return to their Radiology Department to transmit images, as well as its ease-of-use and wireless functionality. Additionally, Sovah Health – Martinsville has cited the ability to interchange select Canon CXDI wireless flat panel detectors on the device as a strong selling point.

“We are extremely excited to now have the RadPRO 40kW FLEX PLUS System as part of our radiology operation,” said Teresa K. Merricks, Director of Radiology at Sovah Health - Martinsville. “As a facility that is chest pain accredited, we have very strict standards that our radiography devices must meet and found that this particular device checked all the boxes. Virtual Imaging devices have a tremendous reputation in the healthcare industry and our x-ray staff couldn’t be happier with our choice.”

“When Radon was approached by Sovah Health - Martinsville to help upgrade its radiology capabilities, we found that Virtual Imaging’s RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS System fit its needs. With the versatility and ease-of-use required to help Sovah Health – Martinsville’s healthcare professionals treat their patients in an effective manner, Sovah Health now has a device that can help its healthcare professionals improve the quality of care that they provide,” said Scott Medeiros, Account Manager, Radon Medical Imaging.

Outfitted with a telescopic column and featuring fast processing times provided by a Canon CXDI- 401C, 701C, or 801 C Wireless Detector to quickly capture high-quality diagnostic images, the RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System includes the Enhanced Workflow Package (a combination of software and hardware) to help healthcare professionals save time by customizing workflows with existing HIS/RIS and removing unnecessary steps. The Enhanced Workflow Package allows users to complete routine imaging tasks from the mobile device, eliminating the need to access healthcare information systems from a dedicated workstation.

Offering mobility and power-saving advantages, the RadPRO Mobile 40kW FLEX PLUS Digital X-Ray System’s small width makes it easy to maneuver in restricted spaces and corridors, while large wheels make mounting small steps easy. Featuring a patented wireless distributed antennae system that increases the wireless range 40 percent over a single access point systems and lead crystal batteries designed to retain power longer than acid batteries, this digital x-ray system can help improve flexibility and efficiency for nearly any healthcare practitioner.
