DRX-Revolution Nano Offers High-Quality Images at Lowest Radiation Dose

Carestream Health’s DRX-Revolution Nano

Carestream Health’s DRX-Revolution Nano will be in the spotlight as the company showcases its advances in pediatric imaging at the virtual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2020 conference.

The CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System effectively and noninvasively examines and aids in the treatment of pediatric patients. Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) are able to conduct chest, intensive care and orthopaedic exams quickly, at the patient’s bedside.

“This system is ideal for chest X-rays and other pediatric exams,” said Sarah Verna, Worldwide Marketing Manager for Global X-ray Solutions. “The DRX-Revolution Nano is ideally suited to serve as a dedicated system in an intensive care unit and the NICU.”

The portable, nonmotorized X-ray system uses Carbon Nano Tube technology and features an ultra-lightweight design for easy maneuverability and arm positioning. It quietly and carefully moves around equipment that typically surrounds babies in critical care. The DRX Plus 2530C small-format detector provides greater positioning flexibility, especially in bassinets.

“It has no motors, which allows the system to be quiet,” Ms. Verna said. “It is small, lightweight and easy to transport even in tight environments like the NICU.”

The DRX-Revolution Nano addresses concerns over the level of radiation received by pediatric patients during imaging. With its Cesium iodide design for dose-sensitive pediatric applications, the system balances low radiation dose with high image quality, resulting in patient safety and accurate exams. Radiation exposure time is automatically determined to use the shortest exposure possible for effective results.

As with other Carestream imaging solutions, the DRX-Revolution Nano has the X-Factor platform that enables the sharing of detectors across the DRX product suite.

Step into the virtual Carestream booth and meet the innovative DRX-Revolution Nano during RSNA 2020.
