Dr Bradley was opening a new office, a pediatric orthopedic practice. He needed a system to meet some specific needs:
Full leg/spine imaging in a SINGLE exposure: in pediatrics motion is always a concern; he wanted to achieve long-length images in a single exposure to eliminate motion artifacts; Fuji was able to provide a good solution for this.
Their LL cassettes are easy to use/process. Simply insert the cassette into the reader, when the first image is done, simply flip it around and insert the other end; The two images are stitched with Fuji software.
A pediatric orthopedic surgery practice means that much of the imaging will be done seated or standing. He selected an open type system without a fixed table to facilitate ease of acquiring those images. It leaves lots of room to move and work with patients; the table can be deployed quickly when needed.
