06/29/2006| 09:57am US/Eastern
Dennis Runyan, Vice President of Sales and Service for
ANEXA Corporation, announced today that the University Medical Center
(UMC) Health System Hospital, based in Lubbock, Texas, has selected
ANEXA Corporation as its supplier of advanced Digital Radiography (DR)
systems. UMC is the leader in comprehensive healthcare delivery in
West Texas and Eastern New Mexico, and conducts more than 200,000
radiological procedures annually.
A selection and review team at UMC systematically evaluated DR
systems from all the major manufacturers. The team selected ANEXA's
SyneRad(TM) family of DR products for its Level One trauma center and
for general radiography and dedicated orthopedic applications. The
SyneRad OMNI DR systems meet a wide range of clinical requirements
while providing superior images at approximately half the radiation
dose per patient.
According to Dr. Frank Quattromani, UMC's Chief of Radiology,
"ANEXA's Selenium2 technology provides images that are consistently
the best we've observed." Thomas Schue, UMC's Director of Radiology,
noted other major considerations, including the OMNI's unique patient
positioning system that saves critical time while providing for a new
level of patient comfort and clinical accuracy in the relatively
limited space and rapid pace of the trauma center. ANEXA's unique
SyneVue acquisition software was also a major factor.
Runyan said, "University Medical Center Hospital has made a major
commitment to providing its patients with the benefits of the most
advanced imaging technologies available. ANEXA, a leader in digital
imaging technology and application development, is pleased to have UMC
as its digital imaging partner."
UMC Health System is the leader in comprehensive healthcare
delivery in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. UMC's new Digital
Radiography systems and the new Cardiac Catheterization laboratory
exemplify how UMC continues to expand its diagnostic imaging
ANEXA Corporation, a subsidiary of Analogic Corporation (NASDAQ:
