CALGARY, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd.) (TSX: IDL), the global leader in the rapidly growing market for digital radiography, today announced that Saratoga Hospital in Saratoga Springs, New York has purchased IDC's X2200, X1590, and X1600 Plus direct digital radiography (DR) systems to replace conventional film X-ray equipment in its three radiography rooms. Saratoga Hospital chose IDC for its ease-of-use, user-friendly interface, customer service and affordability.
Saratoga Hospital has more than 280 physicians with a wide range of medical specialties. The hospital, which is more than 100 years old, has been pursuing digital technology to achieve efficiencies in many areas of care.
