Carestream Shows Advanced Imaging Software, Flexible Portfolio of Mobile Imaging Systems at AHRA

Carestream will spotlight its imaging software along with its comprehensive portfolio of mobile imaging systems at the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2019 conference (Booth #503).

Carestream’s ImageView Software is now available on its CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System as well as the CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity Imaging System. The CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System, with the industry’s first Carbon Nano Tube X-ray source, will be demonstrated on the show floor along with a CARESTREAM DRX-Transportable System/Lite—an affordable way to upgrade a mobile or room-based system to digital with wireless tablet control—both with CARESTREAM DIRECTVIEW Software.

“We continue to expand our portfolio of imaging systems while simultaneously introducing new software features and enhanced functionality designed to improve the imaging process for radiology managers and technologists across the globe,” said Charlie Hicks, Carestream’s General Manager for Global X-ray Solutions.

Carestream’s ImageView software offers advanced features and optimized workflow and uses a Microsoft® Windows 10 operating system to deliver enhanced cybersecurity. It is designed to support advanced applications such as dual energy and digital tomosynthesis, and will be delivered on the DRX-Evolution Plus System in the next six months.

At AHRA the company will showcase its:

  • CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System, which is a smaller, lower-cost mobile unit designed for pediatric imaging, morning rounds for chest exams or other dedicated imaging applications
  • CARESTREAM DRX-Transportable System/Lite that offers a rapid, affordable upgrade to DR and features a lightweight wireless tablet that gives users complete control of the system and displays images after they are acquired. There is no need to work from a fixed console or use a bulky electronics box. A virtual access point in the detector makes this a flexible solution that enhances workflow. Carestream’s beam-sensing technology further simplifies this upgrade; and
  • New CARESTREAM DRX Plus 2530C Detector offering 98-micron image quality and a smaller size than the company’s previous small-format detector.

Carestream representatives also will spotlight the CARESTREAM OnSight 3D Extremity Imaging System, which provides 3D images of weight-bearing studies that are not possible with traditional CT. Its minimal site and installment requirements enable a fast, affordable and convenient digital imaging process for timely diagnosis and treatment.
