In 2015, MDH installed a new OTC12 Digital Radiographic System in the Radiology Department.
Patients will benefit from faster exam times and a comfortable, safe experience during their x-ray procedures. The advanced digital detector technology provides high resolution images while reducing the amount of radiation per exposure by more than half from older technology.
Hospital X-Ray Technologists also have the flexibility to utilize the digital detector in other areas of the hospital where digital technology isn’t yet available such as the emergency room, OR, or patient rooms. In these cases, a portable x-ray machine is utilized with the digital receptor for patients unable to come to the Radiology Department.
