Medisys clinics opt for IMIX DR
MONTREAL – Medisys
Health Group Inc., one of Canada’s leading providers of healthcare
services with 18 advanced imaging centres nationwide, is upgrading three
of its facilities to the IMIX PanoRad digital radiography system. IMIX
Americas Inc. is based in Sterling, Va.
Key considerations included image quality, technical stability, compact
design, affordability and service. The IMIX PanoRad DR system includes a
CCD-based direct digital detector and a multi-axis positioning device.
Dr. David Gianfelice (pictured), Vice-President and Chief of Medical
Imaging for Medisys, said: “After careful evaluation of CR and DR
systems from several major providers, the IMIX PanoRad proved to be the
best value in state-of-the-art x-ray.”
He added, “The IMIX system met all of our specifications without
requiring us to raise our ceiling heights, which would have added
substantially to our costs.”
The three sites are:
• Northwest Imaging Services, Toronto
• Niagara Diagnostic Imaging Centre, St Catharines, Ont.
• Toronto Radiologist Service (TRS), Toronto
“IMIX’s generous warranty and commitment to the long-term success of
their DR installations was another important factor for Medisys,” said
IMIX sales agent Michael Lies, whose company, Medical Advantages Inc. in
Pittsburgh, Penn., has been doing business with Medisys for seven years.
“Our experience in providing state-of-the-art medical technology to
physicians and medical centers, and our partnership with IMIX Anchor
Dealer, CanMed, for after-sale support allow us to provide Medisys with
unparalleled quality in project planning, installation, account
management and service.”
The IMIX PanoRad is a versatile digital radiography system that is
designed to meet high-volume requirements of a busy imaging department
within the smallest space constraints. The PanoRad includes the IMIX
Horizon high-resolution CCD detector, ScanX2 image acquisition software,
X-Ray generator, X-ray tube, collimator and table.
Its automated multi-axis positioning system operates in rooms with
ceiling heights as low as eight feet. According to IMIX Americas VP of
Sales, Carlos Cabral, “The Medisys purchase of three PanoRad DR systems
was based on more than great equipment, but also on the expertise,
reputation and professionalism of the IMIX dealers who implement and
service their account.
IMIX sales agents and anchor dealers work cooperatively to ensure that
Medisys achieves the best possible results from their IMIX DR systems.”
The IMIX PanoRad (SU1000) is fully Health Canada approved.
