Carestream launches new CR system
Carestream Health has unveiled its new Kodak point-of-care CR 360 System that delivers connectivity with RIS/PACS and other information management solutions at the meeting of the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) this week in Vienna, Austria.

The compact design of the tabletop CR 360 system provides general radiology and dental imaging capabilities in a centralized or distributed environment, the company said. The lightweight CR 360 system can be used on a tabletop or on a Z-cart that enables users to take the equipment to the patient.

The CR 360 system provides high-resolution images with a wide exposure range and low noise. The system’s new operating software delivers a streamlined workflow, while its DICOM capabilities allow it to be integrated with a variety of RIS/PACS systems, according to Carestream.

The new CR 360 system is now available for order worldwide, with shipping expected early in the second quarter of 2008.
