Integrated DRX-1 Wireless Cassette Into Quantum Medical Imaging’s Floor Mounted Q-Rad System

CHICAGO, Nov. 28 — Quantum Medical Imaging’s Q-Rad Floor Mounted system is now available with the wireless, cassette-size CARESTREAM DRX-1 detector from Carestream Health. This enhanced configuration is designed for high patient volumes within radiology departments, imaging centers, orthopedic facilities, surgery centers and urgent care clinics.

Beginning early in 2011, Carestream Health will sell the system in international markets and through its U.S. sales organization as the CARESTREAM DRX Q-Rad Floor Mounted System. Carestream Health also will offer the system in the U.S. though its extensive dealer network as the Quantum Q-Rad Digital DRX Series.

Q-Rad-Digital systems are feature-rich and provide full patient positioning functionality. These digital radiographic systems deliver precision and reliability through advanced integration design and features, such as TechVision. In addition these systems include innovations, such as 650 lb. patient weight table capacity, rotating DR-Trays for easy positioning of a wireless digital cassette, FAIL-SAFE electromagnetic braking systems, collision avoidance electronics and EZ-Glide handle controls. These and other unique features allow clinicians to capture high quality images during an examination, which can lead to improved patient care.

This new configuration of the Q-Rad system further expands the versatility of the DRX-1 wireless detector, which is in use at thousands of healthcare facilities around the world. Carestream Health’s DRX-1 cassette-sized detector also forms the foundation for a highly productive family of CARESTREAM DRX imaging solutions that quickly and easily convert analog x-ray rooms and selected mobile x-ray systems to wireless DR technology. The DRX family also includes the fully automated DRX-Evolution suite.

Q-Rad-Digital Radiographic systems from Quantum Medical Imaging are also available as ceiling-mounted and universal systems that deliver high quality and maximum flexibility for all types of medical imaging exams. These systems are available via Quantum Medical Imaging’s dealer network throughout the U.S.

Quantum Medical Imaging—a division of Carestream Health—was acquired by Carestream Health earlier this year. Its innovative and easy-to-use radiographic products—combined with its strong dealer network—have earned a reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
