ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 2 — Carestream Health has been awarded an extension of its contract with the U.S. Defense Department that allows the federal government and federal agencies to spend up to $70.2 million for digital radiography and computed radiography medical imaging systems.

The extension, which ends Dec. 15, 2014, is part of a six-year contract that includes the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps and federal agencies.

Medical imaging systems involved in this contract include Carestream’s versatile family of digital radiography systems that deliver rapid access to X-ray exams by radiologists and physicians, which is designed to improve patient care. Carestream offers wireless detectors that can be used with new or existing room-based or mobile imaging systems. Carestream’s specialized imaging software can help improve visualization of soft tissue in the chest and also helps physicians verify correct placement of tubes and lines used in treating patients. Carestream offers healthcare providers the flexibility to move its digital radiography detectors among X-ray imaging systems located throughout a facility—including systems from other suppliers—to maximize equipment utilization and help reduce costs.

Carestream also offers a fully featured family of computed radiography systems that can accommodate a variety of imaging workflows. These CR systems include reliable, compact tabletop solutions as well as high-volume, multi-cassette systems. Carestream’s CR and DR imaging systems offer the same user interface, which can improve productivity and help allow technologists to proficiently use any system with minimal training.
