Company’s Computed Radiography Organization in Yokneam, Israel, Recognized With Prestigious Quality Award Presented by Israeli Minister of Industry & Trade
Carestream Health has received the National Quality and Excellence Award from the Israeli government for its outstanding achievements and continuous improvement in the area of computed radiography (CR).
This award—honoring the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin—is the most prestigious award of its kind in Israel, and recognizes Israeli organizations for excellence and a commitment to quality. The competitive application process and evaluation is sponsored by the Prime Minister’s Office and managed by the Ministry of Industry & Trade, the National Institute of Standards and the Israeli Society for Quality.
The Israeli National Quality and Excellence Award is based on U.S. Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award established by the U.S. Congress and is awarded annually by the President of the Unites States. Carestream applied for the Israeli award at the beginning of 2011 and went through a long evaluation process by an independent board of examiners in seven critical areas:
The National Quality and Excellence Award recognizes the achievements of Carestream’s Israeli organization that is responsible for designing and developing the company’s line of tabletop CR systems that enable medical professionals to acquire patient X-ray images digitally.

There remains a growing belief among clinicians that obturation is to blame for endodontic failures. This notion has more recently fallen under scrutiny as researchers have discovered that the most thorough obturation can only reflect the quality of the cleaning and shaping of the canal. In fact, a number of researchers point to the thorough use of irrigants — making sure that the debris and irrigant itself are lifted completely out of the canal, not forced out the apex — as the most important determinant in the long-term success of an endodontic procedure.
