Chase Lodge installs new Computed Radiology system to improve digital workflow

Agfa HealthCare UK : 13 August, 2008  (Application Story)
Chase Lodge medical centre in Mill Hill, North London, UK, has installed an Agfa Healthcare CR30-X, which is a compact Computed Radiology solution that is suited for this all-inclusive out-patient facility and general practice service.
Dr Kevin Lotzof, co-owner of the centre, explained, “Because we didn’t want to waste time and money working with films, we looked for a CR unit that allowed us to quickly create CDs and jpegs of high quality images. Agfa HealthCare’s CR30-X fulfilled all our criteria and we are really pleased with our choice. It is easy to use and trouble free. Furthermore, both the image quality and acquisition speed are excellent”.

The Chase Lodge medical centre has also installed Agfa HealthCare’s Drystar 5503 Imager and DS1000 Workstation to operate in conjunction with the new CR unit. Both the DX-S and DS1000 have capabilities to transfer image data to CD, a function increasingly requested by patients requiring further consultation elsewhere; whilst the DS1000 has capacity to store up to several years’ worth of images.

Agfa HealthCare’s multi-application CR 30-X is a compact, desktop CR solution which is easy to install, use and maintain. The system is ideal for the smaller X-ray facilities such as Chase Lodge and other satellite units, orthopaedic facilities and chiropractors. The CR 30-X offers all the advantages of a digital workflow system, allowing clinicians to benefit from digital image sharing and archiving.
