Source-Ray Inc., a manufacturer of portable X-ray systems has announced FDA 510(k) approval for its new X-ray unit – the model UC-5000. It is a fully direct-digital turnkey system for the urgent care market.

“Source-Ray Inc. was able to utilize its 15-year experience as the largest American manufacturer of portable X-ray systems to design and manufacture a higher power mobile digital X-ray unit for the urgent care market,” said Ray Manez, president of Source-Ray Inc. “The UC-5000 utilizes standard 115 AC voltage and requires only minimal shielding resulting in zero installation expense for the urgent care owner.”

“This system was designed to provide both a clinical and radiographic business solution for the urgent care arena,” said John Schaumburg, Director of Business Development for Source-Ray. “The UC-5000’s design and mobility virtually eliminates the need for a dedicated X-ray room thereby allowing urgent care entities to significantly reduce their radiology expenses and overhead cost while increasing their clinical efficiencies. The unit’s high-quality diagnostic X-ray images have earned major endorsements within the radiology/urgent care space.”
