All radiology equipment at medical centers of the Social Security Organization will be digitized in the current Iranian year (began March 20), said SSO deputy head Mohammad Ali Hemmati. “A total of 80 analog radiology devices will be digitized this year,” he said, IRNA reported. Analog digitizing is a process of scanning or digitizing radiology analog films or x-rays and will facilitate use of the picture archiving and communication system (PACS), Hemmati added.
