Portable X-ray Machines Convenient, Cost-effective-www.zjzs.net

Health X-rays have been around since the late 19th Century, but have historically been cumbersome, expensive and not without their hazards. The modern, 21st-Century portable digital x-ray machine addresses many of these issues and costs much less than you might expect. A Brief History of Portable X-Ray Equipment As you probably know, the first medical X-ray machine was invented by the German scientist William Roentgen in 1895. What may surprise you is that the first portable x-ray system was an American innovation that was developed less than a quarter-century later, in 1919. Fredrick Jones was not a medical scientist, but a mechanical engineer who reportedly overheard a doctor who said he wished he had such a device. Unfortunately for Jones but happily for the medical profession he failed to patent the invention, which allowed others to build on Jones’ work and create their own portable x-ray machines. Portable X-Ray Machines Today The drawback of early portable x-ray equipment was that it shared the shame danger of radiation exposure as the non-portable x-ray system, and also required the same toxic chemicals and inconvenient darkroom facilities as stationary x-ray machines. They were also rather heavy. Today’s portable digital x-ray machine can take advantage of the latest innovations in medical imaging technology which as you know, has not only shrunk in physical size, but in cost as well while providing more capabilities and versatility than ever. Digital technology means that modern portable x-ray machines require no film and no developing. Instead, these images are saved in a format that is fully .patible with the latest DI. protocols. Images taken with a portable digital x-ray machine can easily be transferred to any PC equipped with DI. software and stored, e-mailed, archived and/or enchanced. In addition, most portable x-ray equipment today weighs in at no more than 90 pounds making transport much easier. Leading Names In The Industry At Di.
