Orthopaedic X-Ray Suite Installs Carestream's DR Systems


July 30, 2009 - Erie County Medical Center Corp. of Buffalo, N.Y. has ordered two DIRECTVIEW DR 7500 Systems from Carestream Health for its new digital Orthopaedic X-ray Suite in order to generate high-quality digital X-ray images in seconds.
Erie County Medical Center Corporation (ECMC) is a nationally recognized regional center for trauma, burn, rehabilitation and cardiac care, and is also a major teaching facility for the University at Buffalo. The Department of Imaging Services provides state-of-the-art imaging services to more than 75,000 Western New Yorkers every year. ECMC acquired Carestream Health’s DR 7500 system through a locally-owned Western New York medical imaging distributor—GXC Imaging.
The DR 7500 system’s single- and dual-detector configurationsoffer outstanding flexibility for a wide variety of general radiography examinations—including trauma—with remarkable convenience, productivity and patient comfort. The DR 7500 also easily accommodates the integration of images captured with Carestream Health’s computed radiography systems already in use at ECMC. The company’s DIRECTVIEW Capture Link System integrates its DR and/or CR Systems to improve digital workflow and productivity in high-traffic areas
Carestream Health offers several DR systems for patient x-ray exams, as well as a comprehensive family of single- and multi-cassette CR, tabletop, and mobile (Point-of-Care) systems. The company’s broad portfolio of CR and DR systems offers hospitals, imaging centers, orthopaedic practices and other healthcare providers with the latest in digital image capture for patient imaging studies.
