CR (Computed Radiography) technology is placed or defined as a transitional technology from conventional film to digital, and considered as “an older form of digital radiography”. On the other hand, DR (Direct Digital Radiography), like NAOMI, converts an x-ray image into a digital data and displays it on a monitor. This is “a full digital” system, which maximizes the advantages of a digital radiography.
Which would you choose when you go digital, “an older form of digital radiograph” or “a full digital”?
In September 2007, we have conducted a survey on the reasons to choose NAOMI to go digital on our valued NAOMI users who had previously considered to purchase a CR system, or upgraded to NAOMI from CR system. There are many doctors who chose the NAOMI DR system over CR system, after comparing an initial cost or extra work at an installation and maintenance issues involved.
