October 25, 2022 — Carestream Health will showcase the latest enhancements to its DRX-Evolution Plus medical imaging system in its flagship x-ray room at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA2022), Nov. 27-Dec. 2, in Chicago, IL. Carestream's premium X-ray room, the DRX-Evolution Plus System, boasts new features that demonstrate continued focus on augmenting workflow and improving patient comfort.

The first new feature is a flat tabletop. The company noted that tabletop rails, which can cause strain and discomfort for both radiographer and patient, are gone, allowing patients to be moved more smoothly and with less effort to an X-ray table.

The second new feature is the addition of a rotation tray to provide more flexibility for imaging facilities that utilize only a 35 x 43 detector. The capability to change the orientation within the table bucky eliminates the need to place the detector directly underneath a patient’s body for exams requiring this orientation, according to a company statement. It noted that to change orientation, radiographers now can rotate the detector within the table bucky to capture an image, saving the radiographers time and helping avoid the risk of dropping and damaging a detector, which would further disrupt workflow and reduce productivity.

The DRX-Evolution Plus system’s modular design includes options for generator, overhead tube, wall stand and table with one or multiple detectors. The tabletop supports up to 320 kg or 705 lbs. Further, optional Advanced Smart Features automate tasks and workflow steps to streamline processes.

Carestream also will exhibit its DRX-Compass X-ray System, described as an upgrade-friendly X-ray room. Available in a floor-mount or overhead tube crane configuration, the system was developed for easy positioning, designed to decrease set-up time and increase throughput. The company noted that with the ability to select components for specific locations, the system can easily adapt to space requirements, making it ideal for community, rural and private hospitals, and well-suited for urgent care centers, orthopedic and large radiology practices.
