Features and benefits:-

  • Quicker wetting-out plastic core provides easier handling qualities and allows rapid, even wetting-out of the bandage upon immersion.
  • Additional stability interlocked leno-weave fabric ensures extra stability during wet stage, making it an ideal for moulding around awkward contours,  Leno-weave has excellent conformance.  It also reduces distortion and creasing during application.
  • Better mould-ability, the advanced fabric/plaster combination creates a smooth and gently-textured consistency with minimal plaster loss for cleaner, trouble-free handling and improved mould-ability.
  • Fast-setting, improved accelerants produce an initial set within approximatley 120-150 seconds for rapid immoilisation,  The cast will be fully set after 3 - 5 minutes (usual weight-bearing advice applies)
  • Ridgid structure Benecast POP sets to a hard, rigid, aesthetically pleasing structure, combining excellent porosity and absorbency qualities

Customer Feedback

In our small practice, the transition from film to CR and then from CR to DR were serious decisions, financially. We take a lot of radiographs and producing good images is, of course, essential to being able to gain the most information from them and make an accurate diagnosis. We used to produce excellent films but only at times, when the chemicals were fresh. The wait for the processor to warm up was a frustration and there were times when unexpectedly exhausted chemistry meant a delay whilst solutions were made up. When we moved to CR, the waiting time was reduced and the quality became consistent but the image quality was never as good as our best films but it did raise our average. Stuart Thornton at Processing Imaging offered me the chance to trial a full DR system and for us, that truly was a revelation. The installation in our existing table was easy, the sensor plate simply installed in the film tray previously occupied by the CR cassette and before that the film cassette. A little bit of wiring to the textbook sized processing box and from there into a PC was all that was needed and we were good to go. Our first patient was an elderly Afghan Hound with respiratory issues and the quality of that first image meant the demo system was now our system! It is a decision I have never regretted and there would have been mutiny at the practice if it had been sent back. It's been completely reliable and apart from a modest annual check, has required no attention. Despite the quality of our DR images being in a different league from our CR, they are surprisingly modest in file size and being able to attach them to an email as the full DICOM, rather than a jpeg, has been helpful. With our DR, the images have such good contrast and detail and the ability to see both soft tissue and bone detail clearly, in one image, is very useful on many occasions. With the DR, the image is on the screen within a few seconds meaning doing the three or four view chest or abdomen takes less time than a single shot on the CR. That time saving encourages a better study and that is better medicine with fewer lesions missed. A few years ago a DR system was out of reach of the smaller practice but that is no longer the case and as a core activity in small animal practice, going DR for general radiography would be my choice, every time.
