Carestream Announces KODAK DRYVIEW 6800 Laser Imager

Carestream Health Inc., recently debuted its new KODAK DRYVIEW 6800 Laser Imager that reportedly offers high-speed, high-resolution image output for general radiography and digital mammography applications.

The DRYVIEW 6800 laser imager’s small footprint and high quality makes it ideal for a variety of locations, including breast imaging centers, emergency rooms and outpatient imaging centers as well as radiology departments, according to its manufacturer.

The laser imager produces 650 pixels-per-inch output for all images in all sizes, while maintaining throughput of up to 200 films per hour and supports film output from digital imaging modalities including computed radiography and digital radiography, as well as PACS. Up to three film drawers can accommodate five film sizes and an optional five-bin sorter enables easy retrieval of films in a multi-modality environment.
