From the Forum

Below is a recent discussion:

“Just wondering what everyone is doing with their old darkrooms now that digital has taken over? I still use mine for mammo but some day, when we go digital there, we can do something with it.  Are we all still hanging onto the old processor ‘just in case?’”

— Sam Mittman


— Depending on size. We made another break area for techs out of ours due to it being good size room.

— We installed work stations in ours with extra storage space.

— We have not had a processor in 5 years. We have added two small offices where our darkroom once was. I love not smelling chemicals!

— We held on to our processors for a while, but we eventually got rid of them (capital disposal). We recently moved our entire radiology
department, and it was weird to not plan a darkroom area!

The darkroom in mammo was the last to go. That mammo darkroom area is now a “snack room” for the mammo Techs 🙂

— We are in the process of gutting ours, moving our CR readers and other computers in there, more privacy and within eyesight of the patient at all times.
