January 2, 2014 — Carestream Health has been awarded an extension of its contract with the U.S. Department of Defense that allows the federal government and federal agencies to spend up to $70.2 million for digital radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) medical imaging systems.
 
The extension, which ends Dec. 15, 2014, is part of a six-year contract that includes the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps and federal agencies.
 
Medical imaging systems involved in this contract include Carestream’s family of DR systems that deliver access to X-ray exams by radiologists and physicians. Carestream offers wireless detectors that can be used with new or existing room-based or mobile imaging systems. Carestream’s specialized imaging software can help improve visualization of soft tissue in the chest and also helps physicians verify correct placement of tubes and lines used in treating patients. Carestream offers healthcare providers the ability to move its DR detectors among X-ray imaging systems located throughout a facility — including systems from other suppliers — to maximize equipment utilization and help reduce costs.
 
Carestream also offers a family of CR that can accommodate a variety of imaging workflows. These CR systems include compact tabletop solutions as well as high-volume, multi-cassette systems. Carestream’s CR and DR imaging systems offer the same user interface, which can help allow technologists to proficiently use any system with minimal training.
