Kodak launches high-productivity CR
Eastman Kodak Company launched a new high-end, multi-cassette computed radiography system at the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators (AHRA) annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas, this week.

The new CR system combines image quality enhancements such as new noise suppression algorithms and optional 50 micron scanning, and it features a design that allows it to operate even during network and power failures. Other features include:
  • The ability to handle as many as 16 cassettes at a time, with eight queued for processing and eight cassettes ready for use;
  • Noise suppression that enhances visualization of anatomy in low-contrast areas;
  • Convenient, ergonomic cassette loading;
  • Optional 50 micron scanning to perform digital mammography exams in countries outside the United States, where approved; and
  • Throughput of more than 100 cassettes (35 x 35 cm) an hour; and
The CR 975 is available worldwide, with the exception of China, Japan, Korea as well as a few other countries where regulatory reviews are pending.
