November 15, 2012 — Carestream extended its leadership in the wireless digital radiography market by demonstrating a smaller-format 25 cm x 30 cm CARESTREAM DRX 2530C Detector as a work in progress. The new cesium iodide detector is designed to offer high efficiency for dose-sensitive pediatric, orthopedic and general radiology exams. 

“Healthcare providers voiced the need for a smaller detector that would deliver important imaging advantages in pediatric and orthopedic environments, so our engineering team worked to develop the new DRX 2530C detector,” said Diana L. Nole, president, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. “We are committed to continuously improve our innovative DRX product family with new software and hardware options that help imaging service providers deliver a higher level of patient care.”

The smaller detector is designed to fit into pediatric incubator trays and offer higher DQE (detective quantum efficiency), which can lead to lower dose requirements than CR cassettes or gadolinium scintillator detectors. The new DRX 2530C detector is intended to be used with CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution or CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits for mobile imaging of neonatal or pediatric patients.

In orthopedic and general radiology imaging, the smaller detector is designed to aid in positioning for tabletop exams such as knee, elbow, skull and other exams that require a patient to hold the detector or require a smaller field of view.

Like all DRX detectors, the DRX 2530C is designed for use with the family of DRX systems as part of Carestream’s commitment to help healthcare providers maximize the use of imaging resources while lowering costs.  

Carestream’s DRX Software delivers image processing specific to pediatric views that can optimize image quality by choosing default processing parameters to suppress noise and enhance detail based on patient size. The software expands and integrates a range of seven patient sizes as specified by FDA guidelines for pediatric exams. 

Carestream Health will display its latest medical imaging and healthcare IT solutions at Booth #2636 in the South Building Hall A as part of the tradeshow conducted concurrently with the RSNA meeting.
