Getting a HDS digital radiography system in our office over a year ago facilitated our imaging department to the extent that it was like having a new hospital. Being sticklers for image quality, digital imaging has allowed us to take more images that exceed our expectations with fewer retakes while consuming far less employee time.

After our digital x-ray system was installed at our new facility, I have nothing but praise for Hudson Digital Systems. The system has helped improve the quality of care and treatment for our patients and as for technical service we have had nothing less than courteous and timely responses to all of our questions. Thank you HDS!

In choosing a digital radiography partner for my three hospitals, I needed a company I could trust. HDS was a great choice because of their capabilities with digital radiography as well as their experience servicing both general x-ray equipment and computers/software/networking.

Michael Tuder, DVM

Veterinarian, Animal Infirmary of Hoboken - NJ

The Vet DX System exceeds our expectations in performance, while HDS impresses us with their service. The ability to take an x-ray and show it to the customer or burn it in seconds to a CD makes for great client satisfaction and priceless customer service!

“The representatives at Hudson Digital have always been very helpful. They are very prompt in their reply and they make it very obvious that their goal is to help me and make sure that I am satisfied. I have had experiences with other companies where I feel like their primary goal is to make money off of me, but I have never felt that way with Hudson.”
