DRX-EvolutionAccording to MD Buyline, “the DRX-Revolution boasts a unique system design with a collapsible tube column, tube/line visualization software, grid alignment, high kW power capacity, built-in caddies … and other progressive design features.”

The report notes that many hospitals are adding Carestream’s small-format DRX 2530C cesium iodide detectors to meet the need for high-resolution imaging in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), as well as orthopaedic surgery and other applications. It also stated that “users praised Carestream’s customer service, troubleshooting and knowledgeable staff.”
