NORTH CHARLESTON, SC - During the previous five years, CMS Imaging, Inc and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite Hospital have partnered to place into service four Shimadzu MobileDaRt Evolution MX 7 mobile x-ray machines and 3 Shimadzu Radspeed Pro Auto radiographic rooms. Additionally, there is another Radspeed Auto radiographic room planned for delivery, installation, and beginning of usage in 2018.

"In choosing our radiographic equipment we were looking for exceptional customer service and the ability to customize the machines for pediatric use," said Nikki Butler, the Radiology Quality Manager at the hospital.

The standard table height settings on most radiographic systems are not ideal for a children's hospital, thus decreasing the efficiency of the workflow. Instead, the Scottish Rite Hospital was in need of specific table height settings for newborns, infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers and beyond. Additionally, the imaging techniques set on the machines are specific for pediatric cases to reduce dosing for the patients. These customizations have led to improved workflow and an enhanced standard of care for the facility's patients.

"At CMS Imaging, we pride ourselves on fast, friendly, and professional service. Our goal is a completed repair on the first visit," said Dave Brooker, Director of Field Services at CMS Imaging, Inc.

"When we call for service, the engineer is here quickly, and they fix what is broken in one visit," said Rodney Smith, a Radiologic Technologist at the hospital.

"Shimadzu products are the workhorses for many imaging centers and hospitals. They are dependable, easy to operate, and shoot great quality images" said Tom Pompeii, Vice President of Sales at CMS Imaging, Inc.

The MobileDaRt Evolution MX7's has been awarded the prestigious 2017 Frost & Sullivan Award for Radiography Product Strategic Leadership. This mobile X-Ray unit offers the immediacy of being able to view images two seconds after exposure and provides robust support for healthcare applications in all environments.

The 2016 Best in KLAS Radspeed Pro Auto is engineered to improve patient care and workflow while achieving does reductions. This DR Neutral radiographic room allows you to choose the digital radiography solution that best suits the needs of your practice. The next-generation collimator assists to minimize exposure while obtaining high-quality radiographic images.
