SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ORTHOPEDIC INSTITUTE SELECTS KONICA MINOLTA’S RDIS FOR A COMPLETE DIGITAL X-RAY SOLUTION

Wayne, NJ, July 15 Konica Minolta announced today that Southern California Orthopedic Institute (SCOI) has selected the REGIUS Digital Imaging Suite (RDIS) as a key component of their conversion to a complete digital solution. The REGIUS Digital Imaging Suite combines the REGIUS 370 upright DR with either a Nano single plate and/or Xpress dual bay CR reader all operated by a Konica Minolta CS-3 Single Control Station. SCOI’s purchase included the REGIUS 370 DR along with three Xpress dual-bay CRs, two Nano single-bay CRs, four DRYPRO laser printers and a Blue Moon Lifecycle contract. The RDIS is being implemented in SCOI’s Valencia clinic in conjunction with a GE Healthcare Centricity PACS and GE digital imaging equipment.

“SCOI chose Konica Minolta’s RDIS solution and CR products due to their excellent industry ratings for high quality imaging, reliability and service,” says Bruce Brownstein, VP of Business Development. “Most important, they listened to our requirements and presented a cost-effective solution that meets our current and future imaging needs.”

The RDIS converts an analog X-ray suite to a fully digital operation. It includes a cassette-less DR for upright examinations with a cassette-based CR for table, stretcher and portable studies, providing the ultimate in imaging flexibility. All applications are simplified with a unified imaging platform on a single control station that drives both Konica Minolta CR/DR systems.

“Our concept behind the RDIS is to enable facilities to move from analog to digital in a cost-effective manner, with the flexibility and advantages of both cassette-based and cassette-less solutions,” says Darren Werner, Digital Radiography Product Manager. “A single control station for CR/DR with advanced image processing and automated software features combine to simplify user operation and improve staff productivity by reducing the number of steps to capture and process an X-ray.”

SCOI is one of the largest private orthopedic practices on the U.S. West Coast. In addition to the center’s headquarters in Van Nuys, SCOI has four offices in the Los Angeles area as well as offices in Bakersfield and Ridgecrest.
