As you move further down the list, please note that the less common systems may not be as easy to service and are more likely to present your staff with a bit of a learning curve.
The order of our list not only indicates a system's availability, it's also a gauge of its popularity among X-ray users. Recently, the Carestream DRX Revolution has taken the "best in class" designation. It's known for its relatability and tech friendliness. The GE Optima 220 is a close second, with an extensive network for parts and engineers. If your rental provider has the DRX Revolution or Optima 220 available when you want to rent, your facility will be well served by either of them.
