Carestream Health Announces Availability of First Integrated Portable X-Ray Unit, Compact CR System

May 14, 2007 – Carestream Health announced today that the first integrated digital medical imaging system featuring a portable X-ray generator and computed radiography system pioneered by Carestream Health Inc. and Siemens Medical Solutions is now available in the U.S. and Europe.

Carestream Health worked with Siemens Medical Solutions to develop the unit, which combines a compact Carestream Health CR system with a Siemens portable X-ray system. The system is reportedly ideal for a wide range of healthcare facilities, including hospitals, trauma units, clinics and nursing homes, where immediate capture and access to patient images at the point of care is a vital part of accurate, time-critical diagnoses. Designed for convenience and ease of use, the CR-ITX 560 system is said to deliver excellent image quality, accelerate clinical workflow and help improve staff productivity.
