20/20 Imaging Adds Multiple Medical Centers and Teaching Institutions to List of DR System Contracts

First Anatomically Programmed X-Ray System Specific to Podiatry Continues to Set Sales Records

GARNER, NC--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2015) - RSNA Booth # 6358, North Hall - 20/20 Imaging, a Konica Minolta company and leader in small market imaging with nearly 4,500 installations across the country, announced today that the University of Washington Valley Medical Center, Renton, Wash., and Kadlec Medical Center, Richland, Wash, have installed the HF PXS-710D digital x-ray system. The first DR system designed specifically with advanced features for podiatry imaging, the HF PXS-710D has continued to set sales records since receiving FDA approval earlier this year. Furthermore, with the support of sales and distribution partner CMX Medical Imaging, 20/20 Imaging is seeing strong growth and expansion to the medical center market with this new system.

"We've done business with 20/20 Imaging for many years and knew who to turn to for quality digital podiatry equipment that would meet the high standards of these medical centers," said Fred Prenner, VP Imaging Equipment, CMX Medical. "The installation and training process that was provided by the team was excellent. 20/20 Imaging has the experience and the quality products to meet the needs of our discerning hospital customers."

Healthcare is focused on increased quality and improved outcomes, and medical centers are demanding high quality diagnostic systems for all specialties. Physician practices that for many years operated independently are now tightly aligned with and sharing both the decision making and coordinated collaborative care with their medical center counterparts.

"As healthcare is facing both consolidation and pressure to improve outcomes, specialties like podiatry are now coming into greater focus and quality counts more than ever," explained Bob Salzman, president, 20/20 Imaging. "From large medical centers to teaching institutions, only the most advanced technologies are being considered, and the HF PXS-710D is providing the increased quality, reduced dose, and operational efficiency that is making it the number one choice in the market."

The HF PXS-710D is an advanced DR system that is anatomically programmed to assure accuracy and best positioning, while also saving time and further enhancing efficiency by enabling technique settings to be selected at the acquire workstation rather than the x-ray control. The high frequency system has full software integration that provides advanced imaging capabilities and half the radiation dose when compared to conventional single-phase generators.

Earlier this year 20/20 Imaging sold out its initial production run of the HF PXS-710D in only two months. Among the early purchasers was the Rosalind University Health Systems Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, North Chicago, Il.

Expanding Portfolio Includes Ultrasound Imaging
As part of the acquisition of sister company Viztek (RSNA booth #6728, North Hall) by Konica Minolta (RSNA booth #2729, South Hall), 20/20 Imaging is now providing a greater range of solutions to aid in diagnosis and treatment. By offering both its traditional line-up of quality DR systems alongside the ultrasound products of Konica Minolta, facilities will be able to better manage conditions such as plantar fasciitis in podiatry, and to provide advanced diagnosis in the veterinary market.
