Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Boca Raton, Fla, purchased two DRX-Revolution mobile x-ray systems from Carestream, Rochester, NY. The hospital purchased them as part of its conversion from CR to DR at the 360-bed hospital.
The DRX-Revolution units enable technologists to log in by passing badges containing RFID tags in front of the system’s built-in radio-frequency reader. The system also helps the hospital meet HIPAA requirements which files each technologist viewed.
Both DRX-Revolution systems capture images in the ER, ICU, and surgical suites and conduct inpatient exams throughout the hospital. The hospital plans to purchase a third DR portable imaging system to satisfy additional imaging needs created by the expansion of its ER and the creation of a new neuroscience center that includes dedicated operating rooms, a neurology ICU, and intraoperative MRI.
