Top Hospital Chooses Digital X-Ray Systems for Increased Productivity


August 4, 2010 - Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Boston recently purchased four advanced digital radiography (DR) X-ray systems
for use in its ambulatory care and outpatient facilities.

The Carestream DRX-Evolution is an automated DR system that can perform a wide variety of general radiology and trauma X-ray exams. After selecting a patient from the work list, an auto-positioning feature engages the system to position itself for the examination with the press of a button.

The slim DRX-1 detector offers enhanced patient comfort that is especially important for trauma cases. The detector can be removed from the wall stand or table to easily handle cross table and other difficult imaging studies, as well as exams on wheelchair or stretcher patients. Digital images are communicated over a secure wireless network and appear on the system console in seconds.

Carestream’s wireless, cassette-size detector forms the foundation for a highly productive family of DR solutions, including the DRX-1 system that can convert analog X-ray rooms to DR technology in less than a day. The company also offers a DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit that enables health care providers to upgrade selected mobile X-ray systems to wireless DR technology.

A 3-D printed tungsten X-ray system collimator. The tungsten alloy powder is printed into the form desired and is laser fused so it can be machined and finished. Previously, making collimators from Tungsten was labor intensive because it required working with sheets of the metal to create the collimator matrix.
