Canadian practices tap Carestream for DR
Brooke Radiology Associates of Richmond, British Columbia, has converted four clinics to digital imaging with Carestream Health’s DRX-1 and CR systems. The practice converted from film to CR and DR systems as part of its adoption of an all-digital workflow. It installed PACS and then implemented digital imaging at its clinics.

The group installed a total of four wireless Carestream DRX-1 Systems and two Directview Elite CR Systems at two of its busiest clinics—along with a Quantum Medical Imaging DRX Q-Rad Floor Mounted System at another site. Brooke Radiology implemented two Directview CR 850 Systems at each of its smaller clinics. The two high-volume clinics each conduct 2,700 imaging exams per month. Existing single-detector DRX-1 systems at these sites can be upgraded to dual-detector systems to increase productivity as imaging volumes increase.
