IMIX Americas Inc. recently announced that Munster Orthopaedic Institute, LLC has selected the IMIXIntuition digital radiography system with NovaRad's NovaPACS and the IMIXCube freestanding overhead tube crane for its new clinic in Munster, Indiana, opening November 2010. The facility, which will be used for patient exams, minor outpatient surgery and physical therapy, will have one radiography room to perform a growing number of x-ray exams starting at more than 50 per day. The practice selected the IMIXIntuition for its imaging speed, the positioning flexibility of its overhead tube crane without the need for unistrut, and its low ceiling height requirements. The system is integrated with NovaRad PACS and will be installed and serviced by RPS Imaging.

According to Dr. Jeffrey M. Tioco of Munster Orthopaedic Institute, "We evaluated every major CR and DR manufacturer and only IMIX provided the throughput benefits of DR and the flexibility of an overhead tube crane, yet is able to fit within our new facility's nine-foot ceilings." He added, "The IMIX system exceeded our specifications and we were pleasantly surprised at its affordability."

"We have been selling, installing and servicing X-ray products for more than 30 years, and I continue to be impressed with IMIX's innovative manufacturing and design approach," said IMIX Anchor Dealer David Price, President of RPS Imaging in Michigan City, Indiana. "We recommended this solution because only IMIX was able to successfully address the practical challenges Munster Orthopaedic faced in implementing DR."

The IMIXIntuition incorporates a motorized vertical stand and overhead tube crane that are fully servo-coupled to allow for hands-free positioning on upright exams. The tube and table have extended range of motion to facilitate patient positioning. This is a key consideration for facilities like Munster Orthopaedic Institute that work with elderly and injured patients or individuals with limited mobility. The system can be configured for either single or dual digital detectors. The IMIXCube is the first self-supporting overhead tube crane that provides the flexibility and positioning advantages of an overhead tube crane without the requirement of unistrut.

NovaPACS is NovaRad's turnkey PACS offering fast image retrieval, full-feature viewer with intuitive interface, and 7-year on-site archive with off site emergency back up. Full screen viewing, easy-to-use menus and mouse-based functions help enhance Reading efficiency.
