Today’s podiatry practice sees many patients throughout the work day, and having an efficient way to diagnose patients is crucial not only for providing excellent patient care but also to meet your business’ bottom line. The more patients you can care for, the better your stream of income will be, and thus podiatry practices turn to podiatry digital x-ray systems to help them improve their medical office work flow.
Podiatry x-ray that takes advantage of digital technology speeds up every imaging transaction that you process throughout your work week. When a suite of podiatry digital x-ray tools are used in tandem, additional benefits are reaped as well.
Many podiatry offices utilize podiatry DR digital imaging systems. This type of imaging unit allows you to take the fastest digital x-rays currently available, as well as images with the highest resolution values. Clear digital images help to provide you with the raw data you need for accurate diagnoses, and the fast digital imaging times made possible with a DR system mean that you can have a high throughput of digital images yet still maintain the high quality needed in the medical environment.
Along with the podiatry DR imager, your podiatry specialty practice can also connect to a PACS system. This will give you the ability to not only view your digital images taken, but to also store and distribute them as needed.
Viewing the digital x-rays is enhanced through a PACS that runs on a clinical workstation with a diagnostic-quality monitor. From here you can edit your digital medical images by changing the brightness or contrast, can take detailed digital measurements, and can zoom, pan, or rotate to get a better view.
There are also several options for storing Podiatry x-ray digital images. You might want to save digital x-rays to CD or DVD, so that patients can take the images with them to a consultation, for example. You can also store digital images on a server. The PACS system can be programmed to save a copy automatically, freeing up your valuable time. The server can be located on site at your office, or off site, in order to ensure that you have sufficient disaster recovery in place.
Electronic distribution of digital x-rays varies depending upon your needs. Your PACS may be associated with a local area network, wide area network, or even a virtual private network, to facilitate sending and receiving digital images quickly and accurately.
All of these advantages help to cut out repetitive tasks and wasted time, so you have more time to focus on delivering excellent patient care.
