Faxitron X-Ray LLC's new digital core specimen radiography system is named the DX-50 Core. The unit features a new, smaller camera and is intended for dedicated use in the stereotactic suite. The compact unit produces high-resolution digital images in seconds that can be viewed immediately on its flat panel display to ensure that core specimens contain a representative sample of microcalcifications.

Image of 21-year-old woman, who presented with a chronic nasal bone fracture and soft tissue swelling of the left lateral face. Review of electronic medical records revealed presentation to an outside hospital 9 months ago with oblique fracture of the right ring finger proximal phalanx, blowout fracture of the medial wall of the left orbit and similar soft tissue swelling of the left face. Traumatic findings separated in time suggest recurrent violence. Image courtesy of Elizabeth George, M.D.
