ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 2 — Carestream Health earned the top rating in MD Buyline’s User Satisfaction Ratings for its portable and room-based digital radiography (DR) systems as well as its family of detectors in the first quarter of 2019. Carestream’s DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System and its DRX-Evolution Plus and DRX-Ascend systems scored high marks from healthcare providers for performance, reliability, installation and service.

“The MD Buyline survey results validate the strength of Carestream’s portfolio of imaging systems and our commitment to enhance and expand the capabilities and image quality of our medical imaging product portfolio,” said Charlie Hicks, Carestream’s General Manager for Premium Tier Solutions.
