Worldwide Shipments of Carestream’s Digital DRX X-ray Detectors Surpass 9,000 Units

Company continues adding new DRX systems and advanced software features that help enhance X-ray exams

Carestream DRX Systems Advanced Software

August 1, 2014 — Carestream Health has shipped more than 9,000 DRX detectors since launching the Carestream DRX-1, a wireless X-ray detector that quickly and affordably retrofits existing X-ray rooms or portable diagnostic imaging systems from computer radiography (CR) to digital radiography (DR) technology, or powers new DR rooms and mobile systems. Carestream DRX systems and detectors are used in surgical suites, ER/ICU areas and radiology departments — as well as clinics, imaging centers, nursing homes and field military hospitals.

These detectors deliver high-quality, affordable digital X-ray images in about five seconds.

The company’s DRX systems help streamline workflow and improve patient care in both room and mobile environments. Carestream’s DRX-based portfolio includes: Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems, Carestream DRX-1 Systems, Carestream DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits, Carestream DRX-Evolution Systems, Carestream DRX-Transportable Systems, Carestream DRX-Ascend Systems and the Q-Rad-Digital DRX-Series from Quantum Medical Imaging that is sold through the company’s large dealer network in the United States and Canada. Quantum Medical Imaging is a division of Carestream.

In addition to the DRX-1 detector, the DRX portfolio also includes the Carestream DRX-1C that utilizes cesium iodide technology and offers excellent image quality and improved DQE (detective quantum efficiency). The DRX-1C detector can be used to treat patients in trauma, orthopaedic and other clinical environments. Carestream’s newest cesium-iodide-based detector, the Carestream DRX 2530C, fits into pediatric incubator trays and is also used for orthopaedic and extremity imaging. The small-format DRX 2530C detector is intended for use with DRX-Revolution systems or DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kits for mobile imaging of neonatal and pediatric patients. It also can be used with DRX-Evolution and DRX-Ascend systems, as well as DRX-1 room retrofit systems, for orthopaedic applications and other tabletop exams that can benefit from a smaller detector.

Patient care in ED, ICU, pediatric ICU and other environments can be enhanced with advanced Carestream software that uses a single exposure to produce a companion image with algorithms designed to accentuate specific devices or conditions. For example, the companion image can produce a clear view of tubes and PICC lines, display free air in the chest cavity or suppress the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles to deliver a better view of soft tissue in the chest. Use of this software can help physicians deliver a higher level of patient care while simultaneously reducing the need for additional exposures.

To maximize utilization and flexibility, Carestream’s DRX detectors can easily be moved to any DRX room or mobile DRX system — a feature referred to as the “X-Factor.”
