Creating a safe imaging environment is among the paramount concerns of today’s radiologists, administrators, and manufacturers. And, while there is no doubt that every member of the health care enterprise is committed to safety, there are those who go above and beyond.

One provider of test and measurement equipment and services was recently singled out as contributing one of the top medical technology breakthroughs for 2010. Cleveland, Ohio-based Fluke Biomedical received the Medical Device Excellence Award (MDEA) in the radiological and electromechanical devices category for its TNT 12000 X-Ray Test Device.

According to a company press release, the TNT 12000 received the highest marks from the multidisciplinary panel of judges in design, technology, innovation, user-related features, and benefits to both patients and the overall health care system. The TNT 12000 improves patient safety, reduces costs, improves systems uptime, and is easy to use.
