Intermountain taps Carestream for pediatric dose reduction

Intermountain Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake City has installed a Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System for imaging pediatric patients in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), emergency department and throughout the hospital.

The scanner is equipped with Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream’s Pediatric Image Optimization and Enhancement Software, which lets users select patient body size from seven categories. This allows the system to choose default acquisition parameters and image-processing configurations appropriate for different types of patients.

Intermountain equipped their DRX-Revolution with the DRX1-C cesium iodide detector designed for higher-resolution, dose-sensitive applications, according to Carestream.
