“I started using digital X-ray about nine months ago,” points out Dr. Ornstein. “It cost a lot of money, but it was one of the best things I have done from the perspective of efficiency. I don’t lose X-rays anymore. Before, one might get misplaced or I wouldn’t be able to read the names on the X-rays. Now everything is on my computer. I won’t run out of chart space again.”
Hope this helps. Good luck with the practice purchase. Did you read this thread we had recently on: Bought new practice....
I've recommended going to digital to most of my clients. No hassles with chemicals and EPA (increasingly problematic east and west coast). Wonderful clinically. Cost over its life is a wash compared to chemical processing. You can see things on digital you'll never see on film, so clincally I like it very much. Can be pricey to get going, mostly because you will need a second server. Running about $25,000 soup to nuts (including computer hardware) the last time I checked.
Some units are better than others - most of my clients are going with Allpro, with Tigerview software. Allpro
