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.

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.
