New Detector Uses a Cesium Iodide Scintillator to Deliver Higher DQE

August 17, 2010 — The DRX-1C detector uses a cesium iodide scintillator to deliver exceptional image quality, with detective quantum efficiency (DQE) that is substantially higher than the DRX-1 detector. It is the latest expansion to Carestream Health's family of imaging solutions based on its wireless, cassette-size digital radiography (DR) detectors. The DRX-1C will be shown at the annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) organization and is expected to be available this fall.

The new detector is wireless and cassette-size. It uses the same battery and electronics as the existing DRX-1 detector. Like the DRX-1 detector, the DRX-1C detector is designed to be used with all three DRX-based imaging solutions: the DRX-1 System, DRX-Mobile Retrofit kit and DRX-Evolution suite.

The DRX-1 system allows healthcare facilities to quickly and cost-effectively upgrade existing analog X-ray rooms from film or computed radiography (CR) systems to DR technology in less than a day. The DRX-Mobile retrofit kit equips healthcare providers to quickly and affordably upgrade selected mobile X-ray systems to wireless DRX-1 technology, while the DRX-Evolution is a modular DR suite that delivers rapid patient throughput with wireless DRX-1 detectors that provide the ultimate in positioning flexibility.
