Carestream Ships 15,000 Vita CR System and Installs 30,000 Tabletop CR Systems to healthcare providers worldwide

October 10, 2014 –– Carestream ships 15,000 Vita CR System and installs 30,000 Tabletop CR Systems to healthcare providers worldwide.

The tabletop systems make it possible for small to mid-size hospitals, clinics and practices to achieve the convenience and flexibility of quality digital images at an affordable price. Carestream Vita CR systems perform general radiology and long-length exams and are also suitable for military, mobile, veterinary and other imaging environments.

“Our portfolio of CR systems enables imaging services providers to expand their workflow and capabilities by migrating from film to CR systems and then to our family of DR systems that produce digital images in seconds,” said Heidi McIntosh, Carestream’s marketing manager for Global X-ray Solutions.

Carestream’s Image Suite software allows patients to be registered on-site or remotely using a web-based interface. Each X-ray system’s touch screen allows users to quickly and easily select desired body parts and views to speed the imaging process. Technique information can be acquired automatically, eliminating the need for manual entry and the possibility of inconsistent X-ray exposures among different users.

Specialized measurement tools provide diagnostic information for chiropractic, orthopedic or mammography imaging. Imaging providers can use automatic or manual stitching to paste individual images together to create a long-length view. Radiology reports can be generated on multiple workstations throughout a facility and optional software allows facilities to manage and view images from CT, MR and ultrasound imaging systems.
