Carestream Health have announced the CARESTREAM DRX-1C detector, the latest expansion to its successful family of imaging solutions based on its wireless, cassette-size DR detectors.
The new detector uses a cesium iodide scintillator to deliver exceptional image quality, with DQE (detective quantum efficiency) that is substantially higher than the DRX-1 detector. The DRX-1C was announced and shown at the annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) organisation.
The new detector is wireless and cassette-size, and uses the same battery and electronics as the existing DRX-1 detector. Like the DRX-1 detector, the DRX-1C detector is designed to be used with all three DRX-based imaging solutions: the CARESTREAM DRX-1 System, CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile Retrofit kit and CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution suite.
The CARESTREAM DRX-1 system allows healthcare facilities to quickly and cost effectively upgrade existing analog x-ray rooms from film or CR systems to DR technology in less than a day. The DRX-Mobile retrofit kit equips healthcare providers to quickly and affordably upgrade selected mobile x-ray systems to wireless DRX-1 technology, while the DRX-Evolution is a modular DR suite that delivers rapid patient throughput with wireless DRX-1 detectors that provide the ultimate in positioning flexibility.
