What's the Best Portable X-Ray for Your Needs? - Cover

What's the Best Portable X-Ray for Your Needs?

Like the computer of yesteryear, x-ray technology has traditionally needed a room of its own to function properly. This can pose a significant problem to many patients, particularly those in critical situations, where walking into a room and laying on the x-ray bed is difficult, if not impossible.

The idea of bringing the x-ray to the patient instead first became a reality during World War I, when Marie Curie retrofitted cars to serve as mobile imaging units.

Now with features like Wi-Fi connectivity and integration with the PACS, portable x-ray technology has come quite a long way since 1914. This week KLAS released our Portable X-Ray 2016 report. This report goes in depth on which vendors are taking steps to meet healthcare providers' needs, and what new features give providers the most success.

Feedback on Vendor Selection

2016 X-ray Vendor Selection During the Previous 2 Years

Many providers in the small hospital space reported that they had purchased Shimadzu, while Carestream has surged with new installations in the large hospital arena. Healthcare providers also mentioned that while some looked at Carestream's bells and whistles as a liability (saying each feature is another thing that could potentially break), the increased functionality overrode those concerns.

Those we interviewed also gave in-depth commentary about their personal experiences with support and regular usage of the portable x-ray machines.
