Vidar SIERRA Advantage

Vidar SIERRA Advantage is an award-winning digitizer allowing for an affordable solution for teleradiology and low-volume digitizing. It overcomes some of the most common barriers to digitizer use : quality, cost, and size. It is the first film digitizer small enough to be easily wall-mounted, solving siting problems commonly found at hospitals and radiology offices. Featuring easy USB connectivity, an LED lighting system, and availability with a single or 10-sheet film feeder, the SIERRA Advantage allows you to increase report turn-around time and reduce courier costs - all while utilizing the current PACS infrastructure. You can integrate outlying clinics for a fraction of the cost of low-end CR products.
