Meadville Medical Center Installs Viztek DR Solutions

Medical Center Selects Viztek DR Solution With Dose Conscious Capabilities; Expands Relationship With Viztek capabilities

RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2015) - (AHRA Booth #518) -- Viztek, the leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, announced today that Meadville Medical Center, Meadville, Pa., is expanding its Viztek product suite and installing its Leggera Wireless DR panels. In 2013, Meadville implemented Viztek's Opal-PACS.

The Viztek DR solution uses integrated, wireless flat panel detectors offering advanced image quality and dose conscious capabilities, allowing for the most efficient workflow. The 235-bed hospital previously used a two-panel detector system, each with a tethered cord. The design proved to be cumbersome and difficult to position under a patient. Now, with Viztek's DR solution, the lightweight and durable wireless detectors are easy to use and provide high-quality images within seconds of exposure.

"To me, being a leader in the imaging world means educating yourself on the latest and greatest technologies available on the market; do not follow the status quo," stated Terry Beck, BSBA, RT, MR (R) Director of Radiology & Emergency Management. "Just because it's a well-known original equipment manufacturer, does not mean it's the best. Customer service is, hands down, one of my top requirements in selecting a vendor and Viztek does an exceptional job with this."

The reliable Leggera panels have increased productivity at Meadville, positively impacting the bottom line. Technologists and physicians have noticed a more efficient workflow mainly due to the wireless technology, streamlined workstation interface and the speed in which the image is processed. For patients, Meadville was able to reduce imaging techniques and that has reduced patient radiation dose, which is its most important goal, to deliver safe, high quality, cost effective care.

"As a leader in the imaging space, Viztek aligns many of its goals with Meadville Medical Center, and strives to improve overall patient care," stated Bruce Ashby, general manager, Viztek. "Two years ago, we installed Viztek's Opal-RAD PACS at Meadville, and we are pleased that the facility believes in the quality of our product line and finds it to be a fully integrated database, imaging and communications system available."
