Kodak enhances its DryView 8900 imager through Axsys Technologies
Axsys Technologies of Rocky Hill, Conn., will sell its high-performance airbearing scanners to Eastman Kodak Co.'s Health Imaging Group.

 The scanners are used in laser optics assemblies of imaging systems that print medical images from MRI, CT, computed radiography, digital radiography and other medical modalities onto radiographic film.

"The scanner developed by Axsys makes it possible for the DryView 8900 imager to print full-continuous-tone, 100-megapixel images with higher resolution, quality and speed that we were previously unable to achieve," said Gregory Cefalo, Health Imaging's director of digital output marketing.

Axsys provides optical and motion control components and assemblies to applications in the medical imaging, aerospace, defense, semiconductor and graphic arts markets.
