FDA Clears Carestream’s Tabletop Laser Imager for Mammography, General Radiography


May 27, 2009 - The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has given marketing clearance to a tabletop laser imager from Carestream Health Inc. that provides healthcare professionals with output for digital mammography and general radiography applications.

The new laser imager — featuring 508 pixels-per-inch output — addresses the need for affordable laser-quality film output from full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and CR-based mammography systems. The imager, with two on-line film trays, supports DICOM printing for mammography and general radiography. Mammography printing is available on 20 x 25 cm, 25 x 30 cm and 28 x 35 cm film sizes, while general radiography printing is available on these film sizes as well as 35 x 35 cm, and 35 x 43 cm film sizes. The DRYVIEW 5850 offers a D-max up to 4.0 with proven DRYVIEW laser imager quality and platform reliability.

Carestream Health’s laser imagers are available in three models that range from tabletop systems designed for imaging centers, small hospitals and clinics to fully featured units designed for high volume, multi-modality output for hospitals of all sizes. These laser imagers offer output from PACS, CT, MRI, computed radiography and digital radiography systems, and other grayscale imaging applications.

The company has installed more than 60,000 laser imaging systems around the world that serve radiology departments, imaging centers and small clinics, dedicated modality printing and mobile applications. Its laser imagers deliver proven great performance and earn consistently high customer satisfaction ratings.

The company will begin taking orders immediately for its CARESTREAM DRYVIEW 5850 Laser Imager and will begin shipments in the U.S. and other countries in June.
