Ceiling-mounted tube option for imaging system
A ceiling-mounted tube option for the DRX-Ascend System provides versatile positioning for a variety of imaging exams. The DRX-Ascend System also offers a floor-mounted tube stand, wall stand and a choice of an elevating float-top table or non-elevating table. The new ceiling-mounted tube option is currently available for order. The DRX-Ascend delivers cost-effective, fully featured imaging that allows hospitals, imaging centres, orthopedic practices and urgent care clinics to select a configuration that satisfies their imaging workflow and budget. DRX-Ascend users and other healthcare providers are interested in a ceiling-mounted tube because it can deliver flexible patient positioning that helps radiographers perform imaging exams in less time, which can lead to greater productivity. The DRX-Ascend System can be configured with DRX-1 and DRX-1C detectors. Both detectors fit into the standard Bucky used in X-ray wall stands and tables. In addition, Carestream’s small-format 25 x 30 cm detector, the DRX 2530C, can be used for orthopedic and tabletop exams. Customers can also opt to install a fixed 43 x 43 cm detector for the wall stand. The multi-colour touch panel screen mounted at the tube stand gives radiographers remote generator control, displays image previews and allows review of previous images for the current patient. The DRX-Ascend system offers several detector holders to help radiographers perform cross-table lateral exams as well as other specialty views. Facilities can use a single DRX detector with the system or opt for two or more detectors to maximize productivity and efficiency.
