Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital Provides More Efficient Exams with Toshiba
X-ray in New GI Lab
Kalare Offers High Image Quality and Flexibility to Meet Clinical Needs
TUSTIN, Calif. -- July 21, 2014
To offer pre- and postoperative care to patients all within one dedicated
unit, Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital installed its third Kalare^TM X-ray system
from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. This system was installed in the
recently renovated gastrointestinal (GI) lab and will allow Nacogdoches to

tailored service and support with two existing Kalare X-rays,” said Freddie
Gibson, director, Medical Imaging Services, Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital.

select Toshiba’s Kalare. The Kalare is extremely user-friendly and offers
outstanding image quality, making exams easier for technologists to perform
and provide more accurate diagnoses in less time.”

full-featured system utility to handle a diverse patient load while helping

displayed instantly on dedicated digital workstations.
