system, but it quickly became clear that we could generate greater throughput
and treat more patients with fewer staff by implementing IDC digital
radiography," said Cheryl Stanley, Surgical Specialties Department Manager for

CR, making the purchase of the X-Series a good decision in regards to both
budget and patient care."

high patient volume. We are proud that IDC's X-Series has been chosen by
HealthPartners Group, which is esteemed for its excellent care throughout the
