Portable imaging has been a big draw to our booth this week at RSNA.
Mobile x-ray systems are an essential tool in treating what are often the sickest of patients – those confined to bed and in need of urgent care. However, bedside diagnostic imaging also poses several frustrating challenges ranging from maneuverability to positioning and alignment.
Our engineering team has been hard at work on the development of the first mobile DR system designed from the ground up with technologist needs in mind and the prototype for CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution*Mobile X-Ray System is making its debut at RSNA in a special preview area of our booth (#1611).
The live presentation is embedded below:
This system will include all essential tools that rad techs have long been waiting for because it was developed as a direct collaboration with the end-user for their feedback and testing. For instance, when the x-ray system hits the hallways of hospitals, it will feature a fully automatic collapsible column and even storage space for gloves, sanitizers and paperwork.
The preview of the CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution* at RSNA is just one more opportunity for us to listen to radiologists about their portable imaging needs and see if we got it right.
Did you get to see the CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution at RSNA? What did you think?
