ClearVet™ CR is a patented technology which is a touch less scan mechanism that produces lifetime, artifact free images. The ClearVet CR is a tabletop or Wall Mounted unit that utilizes patented perfect Flat Scan Path Technology. The ClearVet CR plates are manufactured with embedded phosphor that never leaves the cassette and ClearVet True Flat Scan Path technology. The systems capacity to generate diagnostic images will be compromised and youll have to buy replacement phosphor plates. Images these systems produce will also have artifacts and the phosphor plates will degrade over time. In the competitors roller based process, its a fact that not only do these systems have a significantly longer processing time. Roller based systems exactly remove the delicate, costly, phosphor plates from the cassette and run them through a ringer, much like an old washing machine, forcing them to bend. Other CR systems utilize roller based processing .
