Digital X-Ray

Digital X-ray

Product Summary

A GE Healthcare Digital X-ray room is designed to replace two GE Healthcare analog X-ray rooms, saving energy and space, and avoiding water and chemical use for film processing, while maintaining the same imaging volume.

Environmental Benefits

A GE Healthcare Digital X-ray system eliminates the need for water in film processing. For example, a GE Healthcare Digital X-ray system can produce the same imaging volume as two GE Healthcare analog X-ray systems while saving over 156,000 gallons (590,000 L) of water per year.

Operating Benefits

GE Healthcare’s Digital X-ray systems can increase productivity over analog X-ray systems. For example, a hospital in the Central South found that one GE Healthcare Digital X-ray system provides the same throughout as the two analog systems it replaced, while saving over $90,000 in productivity, material, and processing costs annually.
