Carestream’s New Vita XE CR Imaging System Available

Affordable tabletop computed radiography X-ray system offers throughput of more than 60 plates per hour

July 24, 2012 — Carestream launched its new Vita XE CR imaging system, which is now available for order worldwide. The tabletop computed radiography (CR) system produces diagnostic quality images at a speed of 60-plus plates per hour and is an ideal fit for smaller hospitals, imaging centers, clinics and private practices. This system complements the company’s family of tabletop systems that includes the Directview Vita CR system (40-plus plates per hour) and the Directview Vita LE CR system (20-plus plates per hour).

All Vita systems are designed to produce diagnostic images immediately, with the option of completing image optimization easily according to user preference. The Vita XE offers a variety of options to enhance productivity and satisfy specialized imaging needs. These options include: long-length imaging, CD/DVD output, modality worklist, Image Suite mini-PACS (picture archiving and communications system) software and a dental panoramic module. Users can also purchase Carestream’s Directview Total Quality Tool (a phantom test kit, user guide and analysis software) to eliminate the need for expensive third-party quality certification testing.

With the introduction of the Vita XE system, the company is discontinuing its Point-of-Care 360 and Directview Vita SE systems.
All members of the Vita CR family share accessories, software and hardware which allows for seamless transitions from one system to another in a multi-CR facility and/or across multiple facilities using different models. Each Vita CR system supports seven different cassette sizes at standard resolution and four cassette sizes in high resolution.
