Affordable Laser Imager Will Feature High-Resolution Output

RSNA DRYVIEW 5850CHICAGO, Nov. 30 — Carestream Health, Inc., announced a new tabletop, low- to mid-volume  laser imager that will provide healthcare professionals with 508 pixels-per-inch (ppi) output— ideal for mammography and general radiography applications. The CARESTREAM DRYVIEW 5850 Laser Imager, currently a work in progress, is scheduled to be available worldwide in the first half of 2009.

It will offer a D-max up to 4.0 with proven DRYVIEW laser imager quality and platform reliability.
