New Health Board In Wales Orders Six Carestream Drx-Evolution Systems 

Geneva, 18 January - The new Aneurin Bevan Health Board in south Wales has ordered six CARESTREAM DRX- Evolution systems to be installed in two brand new hospitals currently under construction. The first two systems will be installed in the 107-room Aneurin Bevan Hospital in Ebbw Vale later in 2010 and the remaining four are earmarked for the Ystrad Fawr Hospital near Caerphilly, the biggest new hospital built in Wales for more than 30 years, due to open early in 2011. The Aneurin Bevan Health Board delivers health care services to more than 600,000 people living in the Gwent area of south Wales. 

The CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution combines DRX-1, the industry’s first cassette-sized, wireless DR detector, with the advanced functionality of Carestream Health’s award-winning, fully-featured KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR 7500 System. The six systems to be installed in the new hospitals are dual detector DRX-Evolution suites, including fully integrated wall stands with floor mounted rail systems and four-way float elevating tables. Each of the six new suites will incorporate autopositioning, autotracking and autocentering facilities, which move the equipment to predefined positions at the press of a button.

The DRX-Evolution systems will provide the positioning flexibility of a cassette-sized detector with the rapid workflow of a fully-automated DR suite, helping to maximise productivity and enhance patient care.
