Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital Installs Four Indiana University Mobile X-Ray Units to Help Enhance Patient Care


4/2/2013 11:32:09 AM

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 2 — After a six-month evaluation that involved on-site testing of six portable digital imaging systems, four CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems were installed at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital (Indianapolis, Ind). These versatile X-ray systems perform more than 150 exams a day in the 650-bed hospital. U.S. News & World Report named Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital to its 2012-2013 Honor Roll in its annual America’s Best Hospitals rankings, the highest distinction reserved for top medical centers across the country that have the skill and capacity to address the most challenging medical cases.

“After we saw what the DRX-Revolution could do, it was an easy choice. Advanced features that improve productivity and workflow include access to the patient worklist, a collapsible column for safety during movement, easy drivability, and an automatic RFID reader that signs in our technologists using their badges,” said Todd Stanley, the hospital’s Administrative Director of Radiology. “The DRX-Revolution systems allowed us to transition to digital radiography for bedside exams in our ICU areas and on all hospital floors.”

He noted that having space for supplies in the system’s holder saves time by ensuring that technologists have everything they need to perform an exam with them when they get to the patient’s room. The DRX-Revolution is often referred to as an “X-ray room on wheels.”

Stanley adds that the image quality and power of the DRX-Revolution 32kW generator enable the radiology staff to help reduce patient exposure. “New techniques have been programmed into the guidelines our technologists use, so we can reduce dose for many of our patients,” he said.
