Does the Design of Radiology Equipment Matter?

The commonness of obesity disease among children and adults has increased dramatically. Imaging departments must be prepared to face the demands especially in emergency and imaging departments. Each imaging modality must provide the highest quality exam for patients with obesity disease without risking delay in care. Continue reading to see ways Fujifilm Healthcare’s portfolio speaks to the demands.

As the prevalence of the obesity disease continues to rise, healthcare providers and manufacturers have responded by investing in facility architectural and equipment designs that safely and effectively serve patients with obesity. This includes CT and MRI scanners with wider apertures, greater table weights etc.

In a recent survey conducted by the AHRA to Radiology Management membership, when asked, ” When purchasing new MR or CT imaging equipment, do you feel that physical attributes like table weight capacity or gantry opening size, have become more important in the consideration process?” 98% of respondents answered “yes.”

An article² recently published by the Hammes Research group concluded, “Obese people require more healthcare than people of average weight. Their needs have to be considered in ORs, radiology and diagnostic imaging, both in the treatment rooms and the equipment used.”

Every Patient, Every Time

Every patient deserves the highest level of care and as providers, you need to be equipped to manage all patient types, regardless of size. Not having the appropriate equipment to accommodate, care for, and manage all populations can result in dissatisfied patients and patient leakage. Value-based performance dollars tied to patient satisfaction scores are significant – maximizing patient satisfaction and keeping patients in network can have profound financial implications.3
