Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp, and its southeast regional dealer CMS Imaging have completed installation of nine radiography and two radiography/fluoroscopy imaging systems at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale. 

The sale of eleven diagnostic imaging systems by CMS Imaging was made in late 2012, in a staged installation. Five x-ray imaging suites were equipped with Radspeed systems and tables that support patients weighing up to 650 pounds. One system has Shimadzu’s Speed Stitch software that enable radiologic technologists to instantly obtain extra-large images of the length of a body, such as those required of patients with scoliosis. 

The addition of four Shimadzu Mobile DaRt systems are being used to perform digital x-ray exams in intensive and critical care units of the hospital as well as in the emergency department itself. 

For its fluoroscopy exams, Holy Cross Hospital purchased both a high-speed digital radiography/fluoroscopy and a conventional fluoroscopy system.
