TUSTIN, Calif. -- August 6, 2013

Offering its clinicians more flexibility while improving patient safety and
workflow, PinnacleHealth installed a RADREX^TM-i Wireless digital radiographic
(DR) X-ray system from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. PinnacleHealth
utilizes the system for a variety of general exams, including orthopedic,
pediatric and bariatric imaging.

“Our high-volume outpatient imaging center required an X-ray system that would
improve productivity and patient throughput,” said Karen Botts, administrative
director, Imaging, PinnacleHealth. “The RADREX-i Wireless enhances workflow
with its wireless detector, while automated technology like RexView allows
technologists to make point-of-care decisions by reviewing images bedside.”

The RADREX-i Wireless features a lightweight, easy-to-use, cableless 14" x 17"
panel. The wireless panel improves image quality, as it can be positioned more
closely to the anatomy when performing out-of-bucky work, including tabletop
imaging of extremities, such as hands, wrists, forearms and feet, and
wheelchair- and gurney-patient imaging.

“The RADREX-i Wireless is a digital, versatile and patient-friendly system
that was designed for more efficient exams,” said Shuzo Yamamoto, senior vice
president, Toshiba. “Additionally, the system makes exams safer for patients
with its RexProtect dose savings technology, without sacrificing image
quality.”
