November 19, 2015 — Carestream’s Carestream DRX-Excel and Carestream DRX-Excel Plus radiography/fluoroscopy (R/F) systems are now shipping to countries across the globe.

These systems can enhance workflow and perform contrast exams using fluoroscopy that can be associated with a radiography image, in addition to specialized contrast procedures that record both fluoroscopy and radiography sequences and interventional procedures.

The DRX-Excel systems are configured with a table and an overhead tube. An optional integrated flat panel detector produces high-resolution images for general radiography as well as fluoroscopic sequences. The DRX-Excel platform also is available as a conventional R/F system that uses either computed radiography (CR) cassettes or DRX-1 detectors with an image intensifier. Both DRX-Excel systems offer a source-to-image detector distance of 180 cm, an ergonomic design and the ability to select an image intensifier for fluoroscopy or use the optional flat panel detector. The DRX-Excel Plus has an elevating table that tilts for fluoroscopy exams and can be lowered or raised to provide flexible, comfortable imaging for patients. Table weight capacity is 584 pounds. The DRX-Excel has a fixed table with a weight limit of up to 440 pounds and has the tilt capability for fluoroscopy exams.

Both systems feature productivity-enhancing capabilities including a positioning pedal that allows the operator to have their hands free — helpful for interventional exams — and a remote control that can move the table from anywhere in the room.

Other options include: integration of a Carestream DRX detector; four-way float top table movement; and ability to stitch multiple images together for long-length exams.

Carestream enables its DRX detector to be shared with any of its DRX portfolio of imaging systems including DRX mobile or room-based radiography systems as well as R/F systems.

In the United States, only the DRX-Excel Plus model will be available. Both systems will be available in Europe, Asia, Latin America and other countries.
