With the advanced technology that is available today, many hospitals are striving to discover innovative ways to bring this technology to the patients. Stroke patients are the type of patients that greatly need the technology to come to them to provide a faster diagnosis and administer medications as soon as possible. A few hospitals in the US and Europe have discovered a way to do just that with the Mobile Stroke Unit. The Mobile Stroke Unit has been developed with the cooperation of Neurologica/Samsung, select healthcare entities, and ambulance manufacturers. The Mobile Stroke Unit contains a mobile CT unit that enables techs to take brain scans on site and communicate with doctors via video chat.
Samsung is adding to their digital radiography portfolio with the introduction of a new S-Detector geared toward the needs of Hospital Ambulatory and Urgent Care affiliated facilities as well as Imaging Centers and Orthopedics.
The newest version of Samsung’s GR40 DR Retrofit is a Gadox detector type and based on the same Samsung XGEO platform as the other detectors in the GR40 family. The new detector uses the same intuitive and easy to use interface for simplified workflow. It uses Samsung’s next generation S-Vue imaging engine to deliver high resolution images for diagnostic confidence. And as all the GR40 S-Detectors it has the same fast preview time of 3 seconds for higher throughput.
The addition of this product to the GR40 portfolio is focused on enhancing the operation of clinics and facilities looking to upgrade from CR to DR. “We’re really seeing the positioning of this new detector as a CR killer,” said Jake Thompson, COO of Samsung Healthcare’s Regional Partner X-Ray Visions. “Especially with new legislation incentivizing the transition from CR to DR, the focus of this product is very timely for a lot of our clients.” As with other GR40 detectors the new Gadox device can easily upgrade existing radiography equipment providing a cost-effective path to enhancing operation from CR to DR.
The new lightweight 14×17 Wireless Gadox S-Detector is now available from Samsung.

X-Ray Visions recently completed two Carestream DRX Wireless DR Retrofits at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) located in Towson, MD. These DR Retrofits were installed on rooms 3 and 4 in the main department in the hospital and replaced Fuji CR’s on their two existing legacy GE Proteus Radiographic Rooms. The transition went seamless due in part to the installations that X-Ray Visions completed on two Carestream DR Rooms located in their ED and four Carestream DRX Revolution Portables a year earlier. The staff has significantly increased their workflow as well and they have decreased their techniques and dose to their patients by 50%. As part of this DR upgrade, GBMC is now sharing two 25×30 CM Wireless DR detectors between their NICU and their ED, making procedures even more efficient.
X-Ray Visions recently completed a Carestream/Quantum Q-Rad DR Radiographic Room installation at the Johns Hopkins Imaging Center at Green Spring Station located in Lutherville, MD. The spacious room includes a fully integrated Quantum 80kW Generator with a 22” Wide-Screen LCD Touch-Panel Monitor & Operator Console allowing for both generator controls and workstation review and viewing of the digital images. The system also includes an Overhead Ceiling Mounted Tube Support with “TECHVISION” for 2-way generator integration and Image Preview at the handlebar assembly. The 650lb Elevating Table included a wireless 14×17 DRX-1 panel which was previously owned by Johns Hopkins and integrated back into use, along with a new fixed 17×17 panel in the Wallstand…..both with AEC. The table also includes a Wireless On Demand Rotational DR Tray for portrait and landscape imaging. This feature charges the battery while in the tray and allows for one-handed manual rotation of the digital receptor within tray.
Congrats to the Carilion Clinic in Vinton, VA on purchasing a Samsung GF50 Digital X-ray System. This was the second location to get Samsung equipment installed. This digital system will increase workflow, create better images for better patient diagnosing, and result in lower doses to the patient. In all this purchase will create a more efficient facility for Carilion.
Congratulations to Greenbrier Physicians Clinic in Ronceverte, WV for getting a Samsung GR40 DR Panel. This panel requires lower doses which reduces the patient exposure to radiation. Plus the incredible image quality allows for better patient diagnosing for the doctors. The quality that Samsung’s DR Panels provide exceeds the competition.
Congratulations to OrthoVirginia in Burke, VA on their purchase and installation of a new Universal Radiographic Room. The quality of x-ray rooms continues to increase each year allowing for better images, lower doses to patients, and faster workflows. The ability to better diagnose patients will greatly increase as well.
Congrats to Carilion Clinic in Martinsville, VA on getting their Samsung GR40 Digital Panel. The Carilion Clinics are in the process of outfitting many of their facilities with Samsung equipment. With this superior DR panel, Carilion’s doctors and techs will experience a more efficient workflow for better patient throughput and better diagnosis fro better patient outcomes. Congrats on the upgrade Carilion.
