March 11, 2008 - Carestream Health debuted its Kodak Point-of-Care CR 360 System that provides radiology imaging capabilities in a centralized or distributed environment, and can be used on a tabletop or on a Z-cart that enables users to take the equipment to the patient.
The system allows for high-resolution images reportedly with a wide exposure range and low noise, contains new operating software and allows for integration with multiple RIS/PACS systems. Designed for low to mid-volume imaging at hospitals, clinics and physician practices, the system has a throughput of up to 60 35-by-43-cm plates per hour.
The CR 360 can rotate, annotate and window level an image and supports standard cassette sizes and is available in 13 languages including: English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Simple Chinese, Spanish (International), Swedish and Turkish. A long-length 14-by-33-inch cassette is planned as part of a future upgrade.
