Carestream Supplies Wireless Digital X-ray Detectors for 2018 NFL Combine

High-quality medical images from X-ray exams and cone beam CT help physicians assess players’ health and injuries

Carestream Supplies Wireless Digital X-ray Detectors for 2018 NFL Combine

February 27, 2018 — In addition to demonstrating their speed, agility and strength at the 2018 National Football League (NFL) Scouting Combine, top college football players also undergo comprehensive physical evaluations that include X-ray exams. This year a Carestream DRX Core detector is being used with the existing X-ray system at Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis) to produce high-quality diagnostic images in seconds.

A Carestream DRX detector has delivered rapid image access at the NFL Combine for seven consecutive years with Carestream DRX-Ascend and Carestream Q-Rad X-ray systems. The company’s DRX detector converts existing X-ray rooms and mobile units to the speed and convenience of full digital X-ray imaging in less than four hours, according to Carestream.

Additional imaging exams to evaluate athletes’ health were conducted at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players evaluated more than 300 top prospects at the annual combine.

Multiple NFL teams — and other sports organizations worldwide — are using Carestream’s advanced digital medical imaging systems to diagnose and treat player injuries. The newest addition to Carestream’s growing portfolio is a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging system that produces medical images for use in diagnosing conditions and injuries for professional athletes and recreational sports enthusiasts.

The Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System enables sports medicine and orthopaedic specialists to capture 3-D and weight-bearing images of hands, wrists, elbows, knees, feet and ankles, which provide important diagnostic information that is not available from traditional CT systems and other types of patient extremity exams.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
