February 19, 2015 — At the 2015 National Football League (NFL) Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, a Carestream DRX-1 detector will be used with the existing X-ray system at Lucas Oil Stadium to produce high-quality diagnostic images in seconds.

More than 300 athletes will undergo complete physicals as part of their evaluation at the combine where top college football players perform physical tests for evaluation by NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players.

Multiple NFL teams — and other sports organizations worldwide — are currently using Carestream’s digital radiography (DR) products to diagnose player injuries.

Carestream is also developing new 3-D medical imaging systems that could be used in diagnosing recreational sports enthusiasts of all types and professional athletes. Carestream and UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine announced a research partnership in October 2014 to collaborate on development of a new 3-D imaging system for capturing orthopedic images of patient extremities.

Physicians from UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine are working with Carestream researchers to conduct clinical studies initially focused on the advantages of using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology in the diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries.

Imaging systems based on CBCT technology for use in treating orthopedic conditions — including traumatic injuries, joint replacements, arthritis and osteoporosis — can be lower in cost and use less radiation than today’s full-body CT systems. This new digital technology is designed to provide the ability to capture weight-bearing images of knees, legs and feet, which are of particular interest to orthopedic and sports medicine physicians and are not available from traditional CT systems.
