September 20, 2012 — Viztek, a digital imaging solution provider, announced the availability of a wall mounting kit for its small-footprint Opal computed radiography (CR) II X-ray system.  The wall-mounted configuration is ideal for a variety of healthcare settings including; cost-conscious private practices, small space environments, and facilities that are moving to digital for the first time, among many other examples.

Processing up to 73 plates per hour, the Opal-CR II is capable of field upgrades to increase the cassette scan rate. The CR also features Opal-Acquisition software and Symphony III post-processing software with grid suppression. The product now features an upgraded cassette that is designed to best accommodate vertical loads.

"We anticipate a significant increase in interest from private practices and other facilities with the small-footprint wall-mounting configuration," said Steve Deaton, vice president of sales for Viztek. "With this mounting capability, practices can place the Opal-CR II in very tight environments where a traditional CR solution would simply not work. Since its launch, the Opal-CR II has been proven in the field to provide clear images at fast speeds for busy practices. Mounting the unit in a control booth requires no additional construction or counter space loss. With wall mounting and a laptop, practices now have an unobtrusive solution that allows physicians and staff to operate at peak efficiency."

The CR weighs only 65 pounds and can be easily mounted to a wall surface in a similar fashion as required with flat-screen television installation. It can be purchased with Viztek's enterprise-level picture archiving and communication system (PACS), which features mobile device and tablet access and secure image archiving.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
