Carestream Health Reports Strong Demand For Its New Wireless, Cassette-Size DRX-1 System

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 9 — Carestream Health, Inc., reports strong worldwide demand for its innovative CARESTREAM DRX-1 System, the industry’s first wireless, cassette-size digital radiography (DR) detector. The DRX-1 system was demonstrated for attendees at the annual meeting of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) organization.

“The DRX-1 system is very attractive because it combines the convenience and image quality of DR with a simple, rapid installation process. It also allowed us to convert our four busiest radiographic/fluoroscopic and general x-ray rooms to digital radiography without replacing the x-ray systems,” said Michael Jenoriki, Business Manager, Atlantic Medical Imaging, Atlantic City, N.J.

  • Recent orders from U.S. healthcare facilities include: 
    Atlantic Medical Imaging, Atlantic City, N.J., purchased four DRX-1 systems for radiographic/fluoroscopic and general radiology exams at its imaging centers in Galloway, N.J., and Somers Point, N.J.
  • Howard Memorial Hospital, Nashville, Ark., placed a DRX-1 order through Southeast Imaging, an authorized dealer.
  • New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York, N.Y., ordered a DRX-1 System for one of its general radiology exam rooms.
  • Tufts Medical Center, Boston, Mass., ordered a DRX-1 system for its orthopedic imaging clinic.

The DRX-1 system incorporates a console and a wireless, cassette-sized DR detector that provides a rapid, affordable conversion for users of radiographic film or computed radiography systems. It requires no modifications to existing analog equipment—which results in very low installation costs—and a healthcare facility can utilize one detector for many types of exams.
