Swissray International, Inc. Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance to Market the ddRCompact Series

    ELIZABETH, N.J., June 5 /CNW/ -- Swissray International, Inc., the
pioneer and technology leader in the direct digital Radiography (DR) industry
announced today that it has received FDA clearance to market the ddRCompact
Series of DR systems. As the first company to receive FDA clearance to market
a DR system in 1997, Swissray has been able to combine 10 years of DR
experience with world renowned Swiss engineering to create an extremely high
quality yet very affordable DR system. The system was specifically designed to
meet the needs of certain markets such as Orthopedics, smaller hospitals,
imaging centers, veterinary, chiropractic, and all emerging countries
requiring a lower cost DR system with high image quality. Swissray's imaging
market trend evaluations of both total cost of ownership and image quality
assessment, point towards the ddRCompact as being the next disruptive product
within the Digital Radiography sphere. Next generation imaging technology and
design experience have been engineered into this system and will compel a
provider to select DR over CR for both economic and clinical reasons.  The
ddRCompact Series offers exceptional image quality at low radiation dose. It
comes with Swissray's unique APS(TM) - Automated Positioning System for
fastest, most convenient and precise patient positioning. It also features 
AutoStitching  for orthopedic examinations, proactive remote monitoring and
a 99% uptime guarantee.
    Ueli Laupper, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing said: "The addition of the
ddRCompact Series to our family of products is another milestone in our
company's history. Swissray becomes the first company to provide a very
affordable DR system built with the highest Swiss quality demands. This new
product gains Swissray access to customers and new market segments who once
found DR to be cost prohibitive. I am extremely pleased that Swissray now has
a high quality yet affordable DR system to offer to the smaller imaging
providers that are trying to cope with the effects of the Deficit Reduction
Act. The ddRCompact will help any provider to increase patient throughput thus
increasing revenues while lowering imaging costs at the same time".
