New Carestream DR Software Enhances Quality Control, Efficiency Across DR And Wireless DRX Systems

August 10, 2011 — Carestream Health showed new digital radiography (DR) software and hardware upgrades offering important gains in imaging productivity, quality control and the management of system-wide imaging data at the annual meeting of AHRA, the Association for Medical Imaging Management. These new capabilities are available for order and will begin shipping this fall.  

The company’s latest software streamlines management of dose and exposure data and contains these key features:

       --A new Total Quality Tool (TQT) phantom and software equips technologists with a fast, convenient process to measure image quality in order to verify that all Carestream DR or DRX detectors within a facility are operating within the specified range.

      --Administrative analysis and reporting software allows administrators or physicists to monitor the IEC exposure index, TQT data, reject rates, and collect and review other data for all Carestream computed radiography (CR), DR and DRX systems within a healthcare system

      --The ability to analyze image content and present chest images in the proper orientation can speed productivity, which is particularly important for intensive care unit (ICU) areas.

The company also introduced DRX-Evolution upgrades, including the ability to review and approve images on the system’s overhead tube crane display so technologists can stay at their patient’s side. Automatic supine long-length imaging streamlines the process for frail patients that need table-based exams. Customers also have the option of selecting a fixed 17 x 17 inch detector for the table as well as the wall stand.   


The software upgrade maintains the same convenient user interface to allow technologists to easily operate Carestream’s DR and wireless DRX systems, as well as its floor-standing Directview computed radiography (CR) systems, with very little training. Some software and hardware upgrades are optional.
