Wireless DR Detector Fits X-Ray Rooms

Carestream Health Inc. released reportedly the first wireless DR detector that is the size of a standard cassette and can be used with existing wallstand or table-based buckys.
The CARESTREAM DR-1 System incorporates a console and a wireless 14-by-17-inch cassette-size digital radiography (DR) detector that provides a rapid conversion for users of radiographic film or computed radiography systems. It requires no modifications to existing analog equipment and a healthcare facility can utilize one detector for all types of exams. Carestream said the DR-1 system delivers fully processed, high-quality preview images in just three seconds, which significantly improves productivity, even for users of computed radiography (CR) systems.
Because this DR detector is a wireless cassette, it provides flexible positioning that enhances both efficiency and patient comfort, according to the company. The detector can be used wherever it is needed — in the wallstand bucky, table bucky or for tabletop shots and other difficult views. With a weight of 8.5 pounds, the detector is up to 30 percent lighter and up to 50 percent smaller than many other portable detectors.
