March 23, 2017 — Carestream announced that it provided a DRX Plus 3543 digital X-ray detector for the 2017 National Football League (NFL) Scouting Combine in Indianapolis to aid in physical examinations for top college football players. The detector was used with the existing X-ray system at Lucas Oil Stadium; additional tests were conducted at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players evaluated more than 300 prospects at the Combine.

Multiple NFL teams — and other sports organizations worldwide — are using Carestream’s advanced digital medical imaging products to diagnose player injuries, according to the company. The newest addition to Carestream’s portfolio is a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging system that produces images for use in diagnosing conditions and injuries for professional athletes and recreational sports enthusiasts.

The Carestream OnSight 3-D Extremity System equips sports medicine and orthopedic specialists to capture 3-D and weight-bearing images of hands, wrists, elbows, knees, feet and ankles. This provides important diagnostic information that is not available from traditional CT systems and other types of extremity exams.
