November 20, 2015 — Carestream Health’s new DRX Plus 3543 and DRX Plus 3543C detectors are now shipping to healthcare providers in countries across the globe. Carestream’s third generation of wireless digital radiography (DR) detectors are faster and lighter than previous models and offer features designed to help users achieve higher productivity and improved image quality.

The DRX Plus detectors offer higher detective quantum efficiency (DQE) to enable improved image quality and lower dose. In addition, these detectors can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes without failure, which achieves IPX Level 7 rating for liquid resistance and the IEC standard 60529. A reduced weight and thinner profile allows even easier handling.

The new detectors also deliver: faster calibration time, boot time, preview time and full-resolution display time; on-detector calibration file storage that enables quicker setup of the detector on multiple systems; and increased battery life to enable more imaging between battery changes. A battery hot swap allows a quick battery change without a reboot.

Other advantages include:

  • Tri- and bi-color LEDs that offer improved feedback of detector status
  • Beam detect mode for room retrofit applications eliminates the need for cable connection to the generator. Image capture will automatically start when the detector senses the X-ray exposure; and 
  • Fast frame rate provides compatibility with advanced applications in the future.

Carestream’s DRX Plus 3543 detector is designed for general radiography imaging while the DRX Plus 3543C cesium iodide detector offers benefits for pediatric and other dose-sensitive applications. Both detectors will be on display at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 29-Dec. 4 in Chicago.

The new DRX detectors can be integrated with all other DRX systems within a provider’s environment. These detectors also can be inserted into almost any existing X-ray system to deliver enhanced functionality.
