Carestream Receives Order From Orthopedic Associates For Computed And Digital Radiography Solutions

Carestream Health, Inc. (Carestream) has received an order from Orthopedic Associates of Meadville (Orthopedic Associates) for the latest computed and digital radiography solutions. The order, which included a KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 3500 System, KODAK DIRECTVIEW Classic CR system and KODAK DIRECTVIEW Long-Length Imaging System, has been placed through Merry X-Ray Corp., an authorized distributor.

“Carestream Health’s CR and DR systems offer productivity-enhancing features that will speed our workflow and capture the wide range of imaging exams required by our busy multi-physician practice. These platforms are also renowned for their ease of use, which should help our technologists adjust quickly to a digital environment,” said Philip Frndak, managing director, president, Orthopedic Associates. The practice has five physicians and five physician assistants, and performs up to 20,000 medical imaging exams a year.

Frndak said the practice selected the versatile floor-mounted DR 3500 system because its fully motorized movements deliver excellent productivity for a wide range of exams. The arm maintains constant alignment between the x-ray tube and the Bucky for rapid patient positioning.

The compact, single-cassette CR system will be equipped with long-length imaging software to deliver 35 x 84 cm images for long-bone, spine and other applications. Fully automated stitching software saves time by eliminating the need to orient, order, and align images.
