Carestream Surpasses 3,300 Shipments of Wireless DR Detector

January 26, 2012 — High-quality, affordable digital X-ray images in about four seconds— with wireless communication that allows clinicians to immediately view images from any location. This is the driving force behind the rapid adoption of Carestream Health’s flexible, wireless digital radiography X-ray (DRX) detectors.

Carestream Health said it has shipped more than 3,300 wireless DRX detectors since their launch.

The detector offers affordable digital X-ray images in a few seconds with wireless communication, allowing clinicians to instantly view images from any location. The company’s family of DRX-based systems helps streamline workflow, improve productivity and enhance patient care in both static and mobile environments. For example, these lightweight, digital X-ray detectors can be used in general radiology exam rooms and mobile units during the day, and easily moved to serve the emergency department at night.

Carestream’s DRX-based portfolio includes the Carestream DRX-1 system, Carestream DRX-Mobile retrofit kit, Carestream DRX-Evolution suite, Carestream DRX-Transportable system and Carestream DRX-Ascend system.

The DRX family also includes a second detector, the cesium iodide-based Carestream DRX-1C, that offers exceptional image quality and improved detective quantum efficiency (DQE). The DRX-1C detector’s superior image quality makes it a good fit for orthopedic, trauma, pediatric and other specialty environments, in addition to general radiography exams.
