IDC Recognized for its Globally Successful Digital Radiography (DR)
CALGARY, June 18 /CNW/ - IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company) (TSX: IDL) is
pleased to announce that it has received the Frost & Sullivan North American
Technology Innovation of the Year Award for 2007. The award, received
June 13th in Newport Beach, CA, recognizes the quality and depth of the
company's research and development program as well as the vision and
risk-taking that enabled it to undertake such an endeavor.
According to research done by Frost & Sullivan, "It has to be recognized
that IDC has made a significant breakthrough on the digital imaging front in
that it represents a viable alternative for front end digital capture by
employing a single, very high density charge coupled device (CCD) camera. In
addition, the technology offers a platform to produce high quality, digital
X-ray images using low dose, and at the lowest system cost."
By launching our newest DR technology, the X-Series, in early July at the
American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) conference, we will
demonstrate our commitment to constant innovation," states Robin Winsor, Chief
Technical Officer. "This new technology platform is evidence of the dedication
IDC has toward ensuring the highest quality of X-ray technology is a viable
option to all levels of healthcare, from the large hospitals in the West to
cash-starved rural clinics and developing countries. The advancements we've
made to the science for our core imaging technology is a major step forward
for IDC and our manufacturing partners."
"This award is a great honor to receive from the respected Frost &
Sullivan organization," states Rick Sbordone, Senior Vice president, IDC. "It
is gratifying to see the success of our technology, both in terms of orders
and industry recognition. The company has achieved over 600% growth globally
in the past 3 years. IDC continues to prove that high quality technology and
affordability are not mutually exclusive."
IDC is recognized as a leading technologically innovative company for the
significant contributions it has in the medical imaging industry. IDC now has
over 1000 DR installations in more than 40 countries.
