Green Bay Packers Install Carestream Digital X-Ray System to Provide Immediate Access to Medical Images of Injured Players

September 24, 2014 — The NFL’s Green Bay Packers franchise is the latest football team to purchase and install a Carestream digital X-ray system at its home stadium, Lambeau Field, to capture and display X-ray images of injured players within seconds. The new system converted the stadium’s existing X-ray room to a fully featured digital imaging solution that can provide excellence image quality at lower exposure levels than previously.

“Carestream’s DRX-1 system delivers high-quality X-ray images in seconds that NFL physicians can use to evaluate and diagnose injuries for players on the home and visiting teams. This technology allows us to meet the requirements of our EMR (electronic medical records) system and equips staff members to view X-ray images from the sidelines on game day using their tablets,” said Pepper Burruss, athletic trainer for the Green Bay Packers. “This embraces the mission of our medical staff to deliver the highest quality care in the safest and most expeditious manner available."

This installation spotlights Carestream Health’s focus on providing the latest diagnostic imaging technology for use in sports medicine. The Buffalo Bills and San Diego Chargers football teams and other professional sports teams also have installed Carestream’s digital X-ray systems for use in diagnosing player injuries.

“Our digital imaging systems are being widely adopted by sports organizations because they offer immediate access to high-quality images. Having the ability to quickly and accurately assess an athlete’s condition can help prevent further injury,” said Diana L. Nole, president, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream. “We also are investing in the research and development of new digital imaging systems for use in sports medicine that will offer additional advantages, particularly for diagnosis of traumatic brain injuries.”
