November 9, 2016 — Carestream will show its DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System (currently investigational and not available for commercial sale) at the 2016 Radiological Society of North America conference (RSNA 2016), Nov. 27-Dec. 2 in Chicago. This fully integrated digital radiography (DR) portable imaging system will offer a compact design with an articulating arm and rotation column, small footprint, and carbon nanotube technology that significantly reduces weight.
Benefits of the DRX-Revolution Nano system will include:
- A sleek design with enhanced visibility both over and around the system;
- A compact footprint that makes it easy to maneuver and position in tight spaces;
- Independent controls of the diaphragm without moving the tubehead; and
- Carbon nanotube technology and an advanced lithium iron phosphate battery that contribute to longer life and an intended weight of 205 pounds (93 kilograms).
Like Carestream’s DRX-Revolution system, this new system is designed to operate with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared Carestream software that generates companion images from an original exposure to enhance visualization of tubes and lines, as well as pneumothorax. This software also suppresses the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles, and enhances visualization of soft tissue.
The DRX-Revolution Nano system will support sharing of a DRX detector with any DRX room or mobile imaging system, which can help healthcare providers maximize return on investment and reduce costs.
