  • Tube touchscreen allows a technologist to change techniques and view images from the tube;
  • Pediatric capabilities including automatic technique and image processing for seven pediatric body size categories;
  • Bone suppression software for optimized viewing of soft tissue;

The DRX-Evolution Plus offers modular components and configurations. For maximum productivity, the system can be configured with a fixed detector in the wall stand, and one or two additional wireless detectors that can be used for table Bucky and tabletop exams.

Like other members of the company’s portfolio of DRX systems, the DRX-Evolution Plus enables each DRX detector to work with all other DRX systems within a provider’s environment.
