November 6, 2019 — Carestream’s new Focus 35C Detector with Image Suite Software offers healthcare providers a cost-effective way to tap the power of digital medical imaging. This retrofit solution will be displayed at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America annual conference (booth #7513, North Hall) and is expected to be commercially available later this year.

The solution is powered by Carestream’s Eclipse image processing engine and combines advanced image processing with broad functionality — easily transforming an analog X-ray room into a full wireless digital radiography (DR) system.

“This is Carestream’s low-cost detector solution, primarily for small medical facilities and hospitals, as well as specialty practices,” said Jill Hamman, Worldwide Marketing Manager for Global X-ray Solutions at Carestream. “The Focus 35C Detector provides facilities with an ease-of-entry point to upgrade to wireless DR technology.”

For smaller facilities, the Focus 35C also increases productivity and efficiency while offering a simple, intuitive user interface and automated workflow.

“The Focus 35C Detector comes paired with our Image Suite software, offering a complete imaging package, so the customer can get all the capabilities of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), without having to invest in all the bells and whistles of a larger PACS,” Hamman said. “Technologists will have the ability to view images immediately on screen when they capture them versus when they use an analog system. Small facilities can have a total end-to-end solution that’s going to give them wireless digital radiography technology at a very affordable price.”

The Focus 35C Detector with Image Suite Software is currently designed as a retrofit solution and works as an independent, standalone product.

DDR allows clinicians to observe movement like never before. This enhanced version of a standard digital radiographic system can acquire up to 15 sequential radiographs per second resulting in 20 seconds of motion and multiple individual radiographic images. DDR is not fluoroscopy; it is cineradiography, or X-ray that moves. The resulting images provide clinicians with a 4-D data set (a video) that depicts physiological movement.
