Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., has recently installed two new RADREX-i systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems in the emergency and radiology departments at its newly expanded facility. The hospital has employed the Toshiba platform for several years and decided to add two new units for more efficient, safer and faster patient exams.

“As a high-volume pediatric hospital, we needed an X-ray system to enhance patient comfort and improve departmental efficiency,” said Bunny Willis, manager of diagnostic radiology at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. “We selected Toshiba’s RADREX-i system for its suite of productivity features, such as RexView, which facilitates less stressful exams for pediatrics, as technologists can review images at the system without leaving the patient’s side. Additionally, Toshiba’s been an outstanding partner and has delivered imaging solutions across multiple modalities for our diverse pediatric patient population.”

A securely concentrated digital X-ray system with numerous automated features, high-resolution imaging and RexView, and a color LCD screen located on the overhead tube crane, Toshiba’s RADREX-i gives technologists direct access to images to analyze quickly decide what is needed for a diagnosis. The system’s automated features include auto-tracking, auto-collimation, auto-program and auto-center stop, allowing with quicker exams and improving productivity and workflow.

“RADREX-i’s user-friendly features are essential for technologists, particularly in a high-volume pediatric setting like Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital,” said Stephen Bumb, director, X-ray Vascular Business Unit, Toshiba. “Le Bonheur is now able to conduct more efficient X-ray imaging while also making it safer for patients with less radiation dose – a product of the system’s dose reduction features and shorter exam time.”

Headquartered in Tustin, Toshiba America Medical Systems markets, sells, distributes and services diagnostic imaging systems, and plans clinical diagnostic imaging research for all modalities in the United States.
