Make x-ray a priority, it’s worth it

Radiography is more than an image


General radiography studies account for about 74 percent of all radiology department procedures; contribute to 40 percent of radiation exposure;1 put the highest demands on the department’s infrastructure; and require the most staff. X-ray is often the start of a patient’s care journey and supports critical clinical decisions from prevention through treatment across the care continuum. It affects productivity, workflow and care team satisfaction. It’s more than equipment and more than an image. X-ray is an imperative.

X-ray is worth it.
Go digital. Go Philips.

Customized x-ray solutions for your needs


Having the x-ray power you need, where you need it to maximize your investment starts with the needs and priorities you have today and those you anticipate in the future. Philips provides a range of digital radiography equipment, technology, services and software that are built to last, made to integrate and designed to optimize.

Community hospital


The needs of your patient population should drive the needs of your radiography practice. An analysis of patient demographics, scan demand and trends and utilization allows you to find the right x-ray mix and optimize your investment. 

Diagnostic imaging centers


Balancing clinical and operational priorities while growing your business requires equipment, support and expertise. Implementing tools that enhance workflow, optimize staff and improve patient experience will set you apart from the competition and increase referrals. 

Complex and connected challenges

 

The stability of radiography technology coupled with low reimbursement rates and new legislation has created a challenging dynamic for many care organizations:
 

Rapidly aging equipment may fail to meet the new technology requirements, but there is limited financial ability to upgrade. In addition, addressing one equipment need at a time can lead to a patch-work solution, missed opportunity and a cycle of inefficient radiography maintenance and upgrades into the future.
 

What radiography challenge(s) do you have?
 
We have seen a considerable decrease in our exposure doses while still keeping our high image quality.”

- Cynthia Hallas, Radiology Manager
