February 26, 2015 — Carestream added several major software and hardware enhancements to its newest DRX imaging system — the Carestream DRX-Evolution Plus. The digital radiography (DR) system will begin shipping later in 2015.

The DRX-Evolution Plus offers:

  • A sleek design with LED lighting for enhanced functionality and aesthetics
  • Greater flexibility in high-ceiling rooms via an extended tube column
  • A new high-performance generator designed by Carestream
  • An optional table to accommodate patients up to 705 pounds (320 Kg); and
  • Forward-looking design specifications to embrace future advanced imaging applications from Carestream as they become available.

Advanced capabilities of the system include:

  • A wall stand Bucky-angulation feature that expedites cross table and other complex X-ray exams
  • Tube touchscreen that 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
  • Fast, secure log-in process using RFID badges
  • A transbay option that enables fast tube movement across multiple trauma bays, which helps expedite treatment while minimizing movement of critically ill or injured patients
  • Automatic acquisition and stitching for long-length and supine imaging exams; and
  • IHE Dose Reporting to facilitate data sharing with a facility’s dose management system. 

The DRX-Evolution Plus also offers modular components and configurations and supports a choice of three DRX detectors, including two cesium iodide detectors (35 x 43 cm and 25 x 30 cm) for high-quality imaging. For maximum productivity, the DRX-Evolution Plus can be configured with a 43 x 43 cm fixed detector in the wall stand, and one or two additional wireless detectors that can be used for table Bucky and tabletop exams.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
