Carestream to Launch Budget-Friendly Focus 35C Detector and Retrofit Solution with Image Suite Software

Carestream’s new Focus 35C Detector with Image Suite Software offers health care providers a cost-effective way to tap the power of digital medical imaging. This retrofit solution will be displayed at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America annual conference (booth #7513, North Hall) and is expected to be commercially available later this year.

The solution is powered by Carestream’s Eclipse image processing engine and combines advanced image processing with broad functionality – easily transforming an analog X-ray room into a full wireless digital radiography (DR) system.

“This is Carestream’s low-cost detector solution, primarily for small medical facilities and hospitals, as well as specialty practices,” said Jill Hamman, worldwide marketing manager for global X-ray solutions at Carestream. “The Focus 35C Detector provides facilities with an ease-of-entry point to upgrade to wireless DR technology.”

For smaller facilities, the Focus 35C also increases productivity and efficiency while offering a simple, intuitive user interface and automated workflow.

“The Focus 35C Detector comes paired with our Image Suite software, offering a complete imaging package, so the customer can get all the capabilities of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), without having to invest in all the bells and whistles of a larger PACS,” Hamman said. “Technologists will have the ability to view images immediately on screen when they capture them versus when they use an analog system. Small facilities can have a total end-to-end solution that’s going to give them wireless digital radiography technology at a very affordable price.”

The Focus 35C Detector with Image Suite Software is currently designed as a retrofit solution and works as an independent, standalone product.
