DHR Health in Edinburg, Texas, recently became the first healthcare facility in the United States to install the Multix Impact, an affordably priced, floor-mounted digital radiography (DR) system from Siemens Healthineers that expands access to high-quality imaging and enhances the patient experience.

The Multix Impact is distinguished in part by its intuitive operating system, versatile wireless detectors, and free-floating, flat tabletop, which enables easy patient access. The touch user interface on the system's X-ray tube permits the technologist to remain by the patient's side for longer periods of time. And when in the control room, the technologist can utilize the patient positioning camera to continuously monitor the patient, potentially reducing repeat imaging and avoiding excessive patient dose. The Multix Impact also has an intuitive user interface with graphical organ program selection as well as a patient positioning guide on the in-room touchscreen and control room workstation.

"We're a growing healthcare system that's focused sharply on quality care, innovation, and patient comfort," said Melissa Peña-Flores, VP of Imaging Services at DHR Health. "We needed an X-ray system that delivered the most advanced technology that our budget would allow. The Multix Impact is a perfect fit because it helps us deliver on our patient-first mission."
