Carestream Health, Inc. Introduces Smaller, Lighter Console for Its DRX-1 System to Further Reduce Footprint



8/28/2012 10:12:46 AM

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 27 — Carestream has upgraded its CARESTREAM DRX-1 System with a new console that is much smaller and lighter. The console is 20 x 8 x 15 inches and weighs just 36 pounds. This newly designed console minimizes the footprint of the DRX-1 system, which allows facilities to convert existing X-ray rooms to digital radiography with Carestream’s wireless, cassette-size DRX detector.

The new console fits into even the most crowded X-ray room and is easy to move if needed. All wiring and power components are mounted inside the cover.

The company recently launched its new DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System and introduced new capabilities and software features for its DRX-Evolution DR Suite that can help manage dose, improve image quality and enhance patient care, especially for critically ill or injured patients. The DRX-Evolution is a modular DR room that utilizes the wireless DRX detector and can be configured to fit each user’s budget, space and workflow needs.

The DRX family of imaging systems includes: DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System, CARESTREAM DRX-1 System, CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit, CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution, CARESTREAM DRX-Transportable System; and CARESTREAM DRX-Ascend System.

A DRX detector can be easily transferred for use with any DRX system to allow facilities to maximize the functionality of each system. Each DRX system also employs the same user interface to increase staff productivity and reduce the need for training.

The exceptional flexibility and image quality offered by the DRX family of digital X-ray systems makes these solutions an ideal fit for general radiography exams including orthopedic, trauma and pediatric as well as other specialty care environments.
