Swissray’s ddRCruze Offers Lightweight, Wireless, Mobile DR

rsna 2013 digital radiography systems dr swissray ddrcruze
Swissray’s ddRCruze provides increased flexibility for digital radiography (DR) systems at modern healthcare facilities. The vendor asked technologists to help design the mobile X-ray system. 
 
The ddRCruze is a fully motorized mobile DR system with effortless system operation, wireless connectivity and premium diagnostic image quality. It offers technologist-designed features, including a viewing monitor for image review and system setup, which can be positioned on any side of the system for added convenience and a front-view camera for safe maneuverability. Every system includes an easy detector-bagging device for infection control and an extendable telescopic arm that provides maximum flexibility for patient examination. 
 
Technologists appreciate the total flexibility of the lightweight (6.2 pounds) ddRPortable detector. Radiologist like the ddRCruze because it offers excellent image quality from the ddRPortable’s CsI flat panel technology, and due to the ddRPortable’s wireless connectivity to the ddRCruze, there is no need for cumbersome cables that restrict workflow or pose a tripping hazard.
 
Despite its fully independent maneuverability, the ddRCruze is always connected to the hospital network. With its Wi-Fi connectivity and radiology information system (RIS)/picture archive and communication system (PACS) compliance, it seamlessly integrates into the hospital's network and optimizes workflow.  Images taken with the ddRCruze can be wirelessly transmitted to the PACS in seconds.  
 
Its compact dimensions make the ddRCruze the ideal system for limited spaces and corridors, while the large wheels make tight turns in small elevators and driving up ramps and on uneven floors effortless. One person can easily control the system.
