RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2015) - (AHRA Booth #518) - Viztek, the leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, will showcase its full portfolio of DR and PACS offerings at the upcoming Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) meeting & exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 19 -22, 2015. Leading the Viztek product line-up will be the Leggera and ViZion + Wireless DR panels, U-Arm DR with Ultra software as well as its IT-enabled Exa PACS solution.

"At a time when radiology administrators are dealing with more pressures than ever, Viztek is bringing advanced solutions that will help solve problems, increase speed and improve access to images from anywhere," said Steve Deaton, Vice President, Viztek. "Our range of solutions are designed to meet today's needs while lasting for the foreseeable future."

Featured Viztek products to be demonstrated at AHRA include:

Leggera/ViZion + DR Panels: The complete Viztek line of DR panels are ideal for use in any new or retrofit system. They use passive trigger technology for ease of integration and flexible usage. The panels can be sold as complete new dual detector rooms, u-arms, straight arms, as well as retrofit options. Panels come in both Cesium and Gadolinium technology, in 17x17 fixed, 14x17 wireless and 14x17 tethered options.

U-Arm DR: The U-Arm DR includes superior image quality, with greater visualization of soft tissue and bones from the same study exposure. The single workstation system improves productivity and decreases the chance of operator error. The U-Arm also features user-friendly controls, which allows for a more confident diagnosis.

Ultra Software: Introduced at last year's AHRA show, Viztek's Ultra DR imaging software is making imaging smarter and broadening capabilities for radiologists and technologists. Ultra allows everything to be done on one screen, improving the overall workflow and allowing more time for patient care. The software is customizable, allowing physicians and technologists to preset the user-friendly controls to capture the preferred views. Also available is the Pediatric Imaging Package, ideal for any facility that is dose conscious and working to align with the goals and recommendations of the American College of Radiology's (ACR's) Image Gently initiative. The system alerts the technologist about the necessary steps to take in order to reduce dose during pediatric exams, while the use of the cesium iodide (CsI) detector enables excellent image quality at lower doses.

Exa PACS: Exa PACS is built on the latest in IT advancements to provide a user-friendly platform that efficiently manages data. Viztek is focused on saving facilities time and money. The fully web-based PACS platform is supported on any device, enabling immediate, remote access to full PACS functionality for radiologists. Now, radiologists have the ability to read any study on a single workstation, creating a streamlined workflow. The Exa PACS also integrates with Viztek's Exa EHR to store and share data required for Meaningful Use and for access to a patient's complete medical history, providing a more informed diagnosis. The intelligent linking feature between the EHR and PACS prevents physicians from manually searching for outside comparison images. 

"We strive to help radiology administrators succeed by providing a solution that is not only tailored to their workflow and specific needs, but that anticipates what they will need going forward," said Bruce Ashby, Viztek general manager. "Our solutions provide high quality images for the radiologist, optimize efficiency for the technologist and help work towards the lowest dose possible for patients."

In addition to the products listed above, Viztek offers a full line of state-of-the-art hospital solutions. For more information, visit Viztek at AHRA booth 518, call 800-366-5343 or visit
