Digital imaging system
The CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution Plus includes new capabilities to further enhance workflow and offer improved visualization of anatomy. The new system offers a sleek new design with LED lighting for enhanced functionality and esthetics; greater flexibility in high-ceiling rooms via an extended tube column; a new high-performance generator; an optional table to accommodate patients up to 320 Kg and forward-looking design specifications to embrace new advanced imaging applications as they become available. An innovative wall stand Bucky-angulation feature expedites cross table and other complex X-ray exams, while a tube touch screen allows a radiographer to change techniques and view images from the tube. Pediatric capabilities include automatic technique and image processing for seven pediatric body size categories. The system is also equipped with bone suppression software for optimized viewing of soft tissue and a fast, secure log-in process using RFID badges. A transbay option enables fast tube movement across multiple trauma bays, which helps expedite treatment while minimizing movement of critically ill or injured patients. Other features include automatic acquisition and stitching for long-length and supine imaging exams and IHE Dose Reporting to facilitate data sharing with a facility’s dose management system. The DRX-Evolution Plus offers modular components and configurations. For maximum productivity, the system can be configured with a fixed detector in the wall stand and one or two additional wireless detectors that can be used for table Bucky and tabletop exams. Like other members of the company’s portfolio of DRX systems, the DRX-Evolution Plus enables each DRX detector to work with all other DRX systems within a provider’s environment.
