IDEXX Laboratories Introduces the IDEXX I-Vision CR Digital Imaging System for Veterinary Practices

Outstanding image quality and streamlined integration ensure efficient work flow

WESTBROOK, Maine, January 14, 2011—IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. introduces its newest offering in digital radiography, the IDEXX I-Vision CR Digital Imaging System. The new IDEXX I-Vision CR consistently delivers high-quality images in less than a minute with a flexible cassette-based design. Featuring a wide dynamic range, I-Vision CR helps practices elevate the quality of patient care with fewer retakes and improved diagnostic confidence. Powered by IDEXX-PACS Imaging Software, its integration capabilities with leading practice management systems maximize revenue by eliminating lost charges and additional workflow steps.

“The IDEXX I-Vision CR System is the ideal solution for growing practices who want the whole digital radiography package—fast image acquisition, outstanding image quality and information integration with their practice information management system from a proven leader in veterinary imaging,” says Penny Guyton, Director of Digital Imaging Marketing for IDEXX. “The IDEXX I-Vision CR, together with the IDEXX-DR 1417 Digital Imaging System and the EquiView Digital Imaging System, all powered by IDEXX-PACS Imaging Software, provide veterinary hospitals with a better range of digital radiography solutions to fit the needs of every size practice.”

“With the IDEXX I-Vision CR System, the image quality is outstanding,” says Mark Wenner, DVM, owner of Cascade Animal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota. “And the integration capability is huge: it uses single data entry while other systems require you to enter information twice. With the I-Vision and your regular practice management software, fee capture is set up, requests are sent to radiology and data and images are automatically in the patient record.”1

The IDEXX I-Vision CR offers the ability to capture an image in as little as one step with its dynamic shot tree for quick and efficient image acquisition. Fully optimized images are available in seconds, thanks to IDEXX-specific image processing developed in partnership with board-certified veterinary radiologists and practicing veterinarians. Retakes are minimized, saving significant technician time and reducing patient discomfort. Veterinary professionals have a wide set of tools to enhance images for diagnosis and review with clients. IDEXX-PACS software allows them to easily share images electronically with other doctors as well as with radiology specialists, such as IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants, for expert assistance in less than 24 hours.
