Carestream touts wireless DR orders
Carestream Health reported multiple orders for its DRX-1 digital imaging technology.

U.S. healthcare providers that recently ordered the company’s digital imaging systems include:
  • Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Ill.;
  • Elkhart General Hospital in Elkhart, Ind.;
  • Palm Bay Community Hospital in Palm Bay, Fla.;
  • Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake, Wash.;
  • Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, Texas;
  • St. John's Episcopal Hospital in Far Rockaway, N.Y.;
  • Viera Hospital in Viera, Fla.;
  • West Virginia University Hospitals in Morgantown, W.Va. ; and
  • Wheeling Hospital in Wheeling, W.Va.

The DRX-1 system features a cassette-size DR detector that fits into an existing table or wall stand bucky and communicates images over a wireless network connection. It enables a conversion from film or CR imaging systems without replacing x-ray systems or renovating exam rooms, according to Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream.

The DRX-Evolution system incorporates a fully automated x-ray suite, and Carestream DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit allows healthcare providers to upgrade mobile x-ray systems to cassette-size wireless DR technology, continued the company.
