Eklin Launches New RapidStudy(TM) CDx Digital Radiography System at NAVC
Date:1/21/2009

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Eklin Medical Systems, a leading provider of digital radiography (DR), ultrasound, PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications Systems) and practice management software (VIA) for veterinary care, introduced its RapidStudy(TM) CDx DR system at the annual North American Veterinary Conference being held in Orlando, January 18 - 21, 2009. The new system offers an economical solution for digital imaging based on Eklin's high quality standards.

"With the vast majority of veterinary practices served by five clinicians or less, a need for an economical DR solution to address this market is apparent," said Gary R. Cantu, chairman and CEO of Eklin. "The new RapidStudy CDx is designed to provide high quality images and support workflow efficiencies while allowing the veterinarian to provide excellent patient care at a lower price point."

Just as digital cameras have made photography easier and more efficient by eliminating film, DR systems provide the veterinarian with a radiographic image that can be viewed immediately at the exam site or at a review workstation, including a high-resolution monitor, without the need for film development. DR systems also offer sophisticated image processing tools, giving the doctor much greater depth of information that can be enlarged or manipulated for far better detail, resulting in closer scrutiny of potential areas of concern. Now, Eklin offers either a flat panel or CCD (Charge Couple Device) DR solution, both based on DICOM standards. The first RapidStudy CDx was installed at Hallett Veterinary Hospital in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.

"We are a three-doctor practice in southeast Wisconsin committed to providing state-of-the-art technology in support of superior patient care, yet we need economical solutions," said Dr. John Hallett, co-owner of Hallett Veterinary Hospital. "The RapidStudy CDx allows us to meet this goal. The CDx unit was easily retrofitted to our existing table, resulting in a great price-to-value ratio. Our workflow is improved since we don't have to wait for films to develop which enables us to take radiographs during our normally scheduled appointments when needed. Our technicians love the new system and mastered it the day it was installed."

Based on advanced scintillator technology, the RapidStudy CDx is designed specifically to meet the needs of the small animal veterinary practice. As the technology advances under Eklin's guidance, additional upgrades can be added quickly and inexpensively. This includes modality worklist with seamless integration into practice management software as well as with other digital imaging modalities such as ultrasound, CT and MRI.

"The advantages of digital radiography in veterinary care are widely recognized," said Cantu. "With more than 1,100 of our flat panel DR systems installed, we wanted to bring our expertise to a less expensive CCD technology. We believe the RapidStudy CDx will provide greater access to digital radiography for a much wider array of small animal practices due to its economics, upgradeability and Eklin-level image quality."
