Carestream Showcases DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System

CarestreamIn addition to showcasing its new DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System, Carestream also announced availability of new capabilities and software features for its DRX-Evolution DR Suite that can help manage dose, improve image quality and enhance patient care, especially for critically ill or injured patients. The DRX-Evolution is a modular DR room that utilises the wireless DRX detector and can be configured to fit each user's budget, space and workflow needs.

New capabilities for the DRX-Evolution focus on dose management and image quality enhancements:

  • Image processing techniques optimized for paediatric views can suppress noise and enhance detail based on patient age and weight. Age/weight categories are consistent with current FDA guidelines on paediatric imaging.
  • Linear tomography* aids in viewing anatomy obscured by overlying organs and tissues.
  • Asymmetric collimation helps limit patient exposure during an exam, and vendor-neutral IEC exposure index values allow technologists to see if they are within an acceptable exposure range.
  • Pneumothorax Visualisation Software creates a companion image (from the original exposure) that accentuates the appearance of free air in the chest cavity to aid in visualisation of a collapsed lung.
  • Chest imaging software outlines areas in the image to alert a technologist if a retake might be needed due to incorrect positioning.

The DRX family of imaging systems includes: DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System, CARESTREAM DRX-1 System, CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit, CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution, CARESTREAM DRX-Transportable System; and CARESTREAM DRX-Ascend System.

The exceptional flexibility and image quality offered by the DRX family of digital X-ray systems makes these solutions an ideal fit for general radiography exams including orthopaedic, trauma and paediatric as well as other specialty care environments.
