TruDR nx has arrived, not just physically but functionally. Mark Skeels and his team have done an unbelievable job putting TruDR nx together and you are about to reap the rewards for their efforts. Tomorrow is the ‘Showdown’ and we are set to outperform.
I have had the good fortune to participate hands on in the beta process at VMSG and work with Mark as he has perfected images. This is where it stands:
Latitude – not only is our latitude now as good or better than Eklin and everyone else, but our latitude is spread across a broader spectrum from black to white rather than dark gray to light gray. That means better contrast and more ability to discern small differences. The tiniest glands and lymph nodes are readily apparent. Amazing latitude on every image.
Noise – Our Noise has always been lower than everyone else’s. I was worried about going backwards on this for large abdomens and hips. However, Mark developed algorithms that have completely relieved my fears on this point.
Detail – our detail is as good as ever and still light years beyond anyone else’s.
Last night Mark and I went through all the Eklin Show Down images and compared them to like images from TruDR nx. There is no real fight anymore, we have better images.
Only four techniques suffice for perfect repeatable images on every shot imaginable. What could be easier than that?
Auto-croping crops every image down to the collimated area.
Auto calibrations happen when the techs are away from the machine and take 10-15 seconds. This keeps the plate in perfect working condition with no work from the techs.
Brett Kantrowitz, radiologist at VMSG says the thoracic views are the ‘prettiest he has ever seen’. Jason Francis, Board eligible radiologist that did his residency with an Eklin at Gulf Coast under Poteet says our detail is better than Eklin even before we enhance.
I am very excited about the TruDR nx, as you should be as well. This product should make your job much easier.
