Carestream Spotlights Enhanced Patient Comfort and Ease of Workflow in Flagship X-ray Room at RSNA 2022

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 25 — Carestream Health will showcase the latest enhancements to its DRX-Evolution Plus medical imaging system at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) starting on Nov. 27, 2022.

Carestream's premium X-ray room, the DRX-Evolution Plus System, boasts new features that demonstrate continued focus on augmenting workflow and improving patient comfort. The first new feature is a flat tabletop—tabletop rails that can cause strain and discomfort for both radiographer and patient are gone. This allows patients to be moved more smoothly and with less effort to an X-ray table.

The second new feature is the addition of a rotation tray to provide more flexibility for imaging facilities that utilize only a 35 x 43 detector. The capability to change the orientation within the table bucky eliminates the need to place the detector directly underneath a patient’s body for exams requiring this orientation. To change orientation, radiographers now can rotate the detector within the table bucky to capture an image—no more manual intervention outside the bucky. This important update saves radiographers time and helps avoid the risk of dropping and damaging a detector, which would further disrupt workflow and reduce productivity.

Both the flat tabletop and rotation tray are standard features of the DRX-Evolution Plus, which is available worldwide; however, the rotation tray is not available in China.

The DRX-Evolution Plus system’s modular design includes options for generator, overhead tube, wall stand and table with one or multiple detectors. The tabletop supports up to 320 kg or 705 lbs. Further, optional Advanced Smart Features automate tasks and workflow steps to streamline processes.

Carestream also will exhibit its DRX-Compass X-ray System at RSNA. An upgrade-friendly X-ray room, the DRX-Compass—available in a floor-mount or overhead tube crane configuration—has a broad array of advanced features and options to meet changing needs.  Developed for easy positioning, this system was designed to decrease set-up time and increase throughput for every facility.

With the ability to select components for specific locations, the system can easily adapt to space requirements. The DRX-Compass is ideal for community, rural and private hospitals. It is also well suited for urgent care centers, orthopaedic and large radiology practices.
