What are the advantages of X-Ray Scanning?

Having x-rays scanned can help in a number of different ways:

X-Ray digitisation can improve the productivity of the radiology department.

With fully digitised x-rays, you can view them at any time from any computer connected to the network, computer or hard-drive that holds the images. This makes searching for and viewing the images a fast process and one that can make a big difference.

Off-site diagnosis can be made and increases the accuracy of the medical interpretations.

If you need the opinion of a professional who isn’t currently on site or works elsewhere, the digital documents can be simply emailed over or even viewed remotely. This saves considerable time and the extra opinion can make all the difference to the outcome of your diagnosis.

Reducing costs

The ability to organise your X-Ray films more efficiency

We can index your scanned x-rays by categories of your choice to make them easier to find. They can be named by patient name or reference number or in any other way you can think of. This allows the films to be much easier to find and view, saving time and costs.

Reclaiming valuable space

Over time x-rays can take up a lot of room and are more often than not stored away in a large room within the premises. With our x-ray scan services you can save all of this space by storing your x-rays virtually. This could mean that the hard copy versions can now be disposed of if you so wish. The freed up space can be used for other important storage or many other uses which could be beneficial to your organisation.

Better image quality

We scan x-rays at a very high resolution which enables more details to be seen than could possibly have seen before on a lightbox which makes diagnosis all the easier.

Silver Recovery

Silver recovery. Silver recovery is the process by which pure metallic silver can be recycled from old x-ray films. The modern process is extremely efficient with recovery of greater than 99.9% silver. Historically all radiographic film media employed silver salts as part of the image-producing process. This allows the recovery of the silver from the film and can potentially generate our customers a rebate.
