News Release - June 5, 2007
Swissray International, Inc. Announces FDA 510(k) Clearance to Market the ddRCompact SeriesELIZABETH, N.J., June 5 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Swissray International, Inc., the pioneer and technology leader in the direct Digital Radiography (DR) industry announced today that it has received FDA clearance to market the ddRCompact Series of DR systems. As the first company to receive FDA clearance to market a DR system in 1997, Swissray has been able to combine 10 years of DR experience with world renowned Swiss engineering to create an extremely high quality yet very affordable DR system. The system was specifically designed to meet the needs of certain markets such as Orthopedics, smaller hospitals, imaging centers, veterinary, chiropractic, and all emerging countries requiring a lower cost DR system with high image quality. Swissray's imaging market trend evaluations of both total cost of ownership and image quality assessment, point towards the ddRCompact as being the next disruptive product within the Digital Radiography sphere. Next generation imaging technology and design experience have been engineered into this system and will compel a provider to select DR over CR for both economic and clinical reasons. The ddRCompact Series offers exceptional image quality at low radiation dose. It comes with Swissray's unique APS(TM) - Automated Positioning System for fastest, most convenient and precise patient positioning. It also features << AutoStitching >> for orthopedic examinations, proactive remote monitoring and a 99% uptime guarantee.
Ueli Laupper, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing said: "The addition of the ddRCompact Series to our family of products is another milestone in our company's history. Swissray becomes the first company to provide a very affordable DR system built with the highest Swiss quality demands. This new product gains Swissray access to customers and new market segments who once found DR to be cost prohibitive. I am extremely pleased that Swissray now has a high quality yet affordable DR system to offer to the smaller imaging providers that are trying to cope with the effects of the Deficit Reduction Act. The ddRCompact will help any provider to increase patient throughput thus increasing revenues while lowering imaging costs at the same time".
Swissray has received from Frost & Sullivan the "Best Product Value" award for their market leading direct Digital Radiography (DR) systems. This new technology provides highest quality medical radiographic images in seconds at a significantly lower cost and radiation dose than conventional or computed radiography (CR) because, among other factors, film, imaging plates, cassettes and chemical processing are not required. Swissray currently provides a full range of DR systems for orthopedic applications, imaging centers, hospitals and emergency departments. All of Swissray's DR systems include its unique fully automated, remote controlled APS(TM) - Automated Positioning System.
