Carestream Health
The Carestream DRX-1 System  
Carestream Health (Booth 8342) is debuting the industry’s first wireless, cassette-size digital radiography (DR) detector that can be used with existing wall stand or table-based Buckys. The Carestream DRX-1 System, currently a work in progress, is expected to be available during the first quarter of 2009. It incorporates a console and a wireless 14 x 17 inch (35 x 43 cm) cassette-size detector that provides a rapid, affordable conversion for users of radiographic film or CR systems. It requires no modifications to existing analog equipment—which results in very low installation costs. The DRX-1 system delivers high-quality preview images in under five seconds, which significantly improves productivity, even for users of CR systems.
