“The Smart Room Assist features on DRX-Compass add significant quantifiable value to the imaging process. They help streamline workflow and ease the physical stress on radiographers, while also helping to deliver more consistent image capture and improved image quality for stronger diagnostic confidence and patient care,” said Marco Riolfo, Worldwide Marketing Manager, Global X-ray Solutions, at Carestream.
