New Tabletop CR System

October 4, 2010 — A new tabletop computed radiography (CR) system is designed to provide rapid image access to help increase both the speed and accuracy of patient diagnosis. This compact imaging system is targeted for use in independent imaging centers, clinics, multi-physician offices, as well as chiropractic and veterinary facilities.

The Carestream Directview Vita CR system is available in countries where the company’s current tabletop CR systems are sold. It will be marketed directly to customers and through dealers. Beginning in November, the system can be bundled with optional Image Suite software for a complete mini-PACS solution that includes digital image capture, viewing, printing, storage and management.

The lightweight Vita CR system offers a durable, sealed design that can withstand rough handling and extreme conditions. It supports eight cassette sizes, including 14- by 33-inches (35 by 84 cm) for long-length exams. It offers a short-term archive, DICOM transmission to PACS and DICOM and Windows printing to a variety of output devices at no additional cost.

With throughput of 44 plates per hour (14- by 17-inch/35 by 43 cm), the system offers additional options, such as the ability to query modality worklists and create patient CDs. An optional Z-cart allows the system to be easily shared between rooms. A “smart erase” feature allows fast, complete erasure of latent images across all exposure levels.

Accessories include a portable caddy with embedded grid, a wall stand with grid and beam-attenuation filters.
