Viztek Introduces Industry's Lightest, Wireless Direct Radiography Panel

New DR Panel Features Innovative Functionality to Maximize Productivity

RALEIGH, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 -- Viztek, a leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, introduces the Leggera Wireless Panel, expanding the Leggera DR (Direct Radiography) Solutions product line to now include the lightest -- 6.1 lb, ISO 4090 cassette size -- wireless panel available to the market. With the addition of the Leggera Wireless Panel, hospitals and imaging centers now have access to the compact panel and its revolutionary features including storage capacity of 50 images, two removable batteries to maximize productivity and uptime while providing breakthrough reliability in image storage and back-up.

"Viztek is truly leapfrogging other wireless DR technologies with the introduction of the Leggera DR panel," said Bruce Ashby, Vice President of DR, Viztek. "It is imperative that new technologies are designed with full consideration of technologists and hospital IT needs so that the innovations they deliver support maximum efficiency and productivity. Viztek is proud to lead the market with advancements in DR hardware and software technology, with the Leggera DR being just the tip of the iceberg of more advancements to come in the near future."

An ISO 4090 cassette that is easily adopted and used in any sized facility, the Leggera DR is the first wireless panel available that can safely store 50-images within the panel. This exceptional storage capability is beneficial in the case of any facility-wide system problems where image preservation is imperative and creates an easy transition for non-departmental usage. Further, it comes standard with two removable batteries, and a charging station that holds up to three batteries. Users are able to charge alternate batteries while still using the panel eliminating any need for the system to experience downtime caused by a charging period,

The Leggera Wireless Panel will also bring unparalleled productivity benefits to the market with its innovative list of technology advancements, including:

  • Gyro capability. Time is saved by eliminating the need to configure orientation, that leads to the minimization of error and the need for image re-takes
  • Passive-trigger technology. Takes any x-ray source and panel will turn on and allow x-ray without any interface between the generator to the panel
  • Auto-sleep feature. Further preserves the 8-hour battery life

The Leggera DR is FDA approved and currently available for sale. For more information, please visit www.viztek.net.

DXWorldEXPO Digital Transformation Stories
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....
AI and machine learning disruption for Enterprises started happening in the areas such as IT operations management (ITOPs) and Cloud management and SaaS apps. In 2019 CIOs will see disruptive solutions for Cloud & Devops, AI/ML driven IT Ops and Cloud Ops. Customers want AI-driven multi-cloud operations for monitoring, detection, prevention of disruptions.
