Carestream introduces two new radiography systems

Carestream Health has introduced two new radiography or fluoroscopy systems (R/F), DRX-Excel and DRX-Excel Plus, which are designed to deliver high-quality, cost-effective imaging.


The new systems will improve workflow and perform contrast exams using fluoroscopy that can be associated with a radiography image.

They also provide specialized contrast procedures that record both fluoroscopy and radiography sequences and interventional procedures.

DRX-Excel systems are assembled with table and tube in one system, while an optional integrated flat panel detector generates high-resolution images for general radiography and fluoroscopic sequences.

In addition, the DRX-Excel platform is available as a conventional R/F system, which uses either CR cassettes or DRX-1 detectors with an image intensifier.

Carestream digital medical solutions president Diana Nole said: "We are expanding our radiography leadership to include fluoroscopy, which is performed by many of the hospitals and imaging centers we serve.

"This is a natural extension for both our company and our customers, and enables healthcare providers to benefit from purchasing these systems from a single supplier with a strong reputation for outstanding service and support."

Both the systems provide a source-to-image detector distance of 180cm and also allows to select an image intensifier for fluoroscopy or use the optional flat panel detector.

The systems are said to support Carestream’s X-Factor approach that enables a DRX detector to be shared among an R/F room and other DRX mobile or room-based radiography or R/F systems.

The DRX-Excel Plus model is available for sale only in the US, while both systems are available in Europe, Asia, Latin America and other countries.
