August 30, 2012 — Carestream has upgraded its Carestream DRX-1 system with a new smaller and lighter console. The console is 20 x 8 x 15 inches and weighs 36 lbs. This newly designed console minimizes the footprint of the DRX-1 system, which allows facilities to convert existing X-ray rooms to digital radiography (DR) with Carestream’s wireless, cassette-size DRX detector. The new console fits into even the most crowded X-ray room and is easy to move if needed. All wiring and power components are mounted inside the cover.
The company recently launched its new DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray system and introduced new capabilities and software features for its DRX-Evolution DR suite that can help manage dose, improve image quality and enhance patient care, especially for critically ill or injured patients. The DRX-Evolution is a modular DR room that utilizes the wireless DRX detector and can be configured to fit each user’s budget, space and workflow needs.
The DRX family of imaging systems includes: DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray system, DRX-1 system, DRX-Mobile retrofit kit, DRX-Evolution, DRX-Transportable system and DRX-Ascend system.
A DRX detector can be easily transferred for use with any DRX system to allow facilities to maximize the functionality of each system. Each DRX system also employs the same user interface to increase staff productivity and reduce the need for training. The flexibility and image quality offered by the DRX family of digital X-ray systems makes these solutions an ideal fit for general radiography exams including orthopedic, trauma and pediatric, as well as other specialty care environments.
