Carestream Introduces Wireless Tablet-Based DR Converter

New wireless tablet control creates flexibility, savings when converting from CR to DR

Carestream Introduces Wireless Tablet-Based DR Converter

October 18, 2017 — Carestream Health looks to make converting to digital radiography (DR) easy and affordable with the launch of its Carestream DRX-Transportable System/Lite. This system equips facilities to convert room-based or mobile imaging systems to DR through use of a wireless tablet PC that gives users complete control of the X-ray system and displays diagnostic images as they are acquired.

Control from the wireless tablet eliminates the need to interface with a generator and use a cable connection, which delivers high flexibility and saves both time and money. An access point in the detector communicates with the access point in the tablet to create a flexible solution that enhances workflow.

This new system is available in the United States, Canada, Europe and selected countries around the world. It will be displayed at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

This system uses a virtual access point in the DRX detector to manage image capture and display images on the tablet. The tablet PC is self-powered and rechargeable. It has a 12-inch touch screen and weighs just 3.6 pounds.
