Carestream will demonstrate new compact, lighter weight mobile x-ray system as work in progress at RSNA
Carestream will show its DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System (INVESTIGATIONAL-Not available for commercial sale) at the Radiological Society of North America conference (Booth #4704). This fully integrated DR portable imaging system will offer a compact design with an articulating arm and rotation column, small footprint, and carbon nanotube technology that significantly reduces weight.
“When we launched the DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System, we introduced a new generation of mobile imaging that features an automatic collapsible column for enhanced visibility, powerful dual motor drive, long tubehead reach and specialized image visualization software,” said Sarah Verna, Carestream’s Worldwide Global Marketing Manager for X-ray Solutions.
“The new DRX-Revolution Nano system will use carbon nanotube technology to deliver an innovative lighter weight, non-motorized system that will be even easier to transport and position in cramped critical care areas,” she explains.
Benefits of the DRX-Revolution Nano system will include:
- A sleek design with enhanced visibility both over and around the system
- A compact footprint that makes it easy to maneuver and position in tight spaces
- Independent controls of the diaphragm without moving the tubehead; and
- Carbon nanotube technology and an advanced lithium iron phosphate battery that contribute to longer life and an intended weight of 205 pounds (93 kilograms).
Like Carestream’s DRX-Revolution system, this new system is designed to operate with FDA cleared Carestream software that generates companion images from an original exposure to enhance visualization of tubes and lines, as well as pneumothorax. This software also suppresses the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles, and enhances visualization of soft tissue.
The DRX-Revolution Nano system will support sharing of a DRX detector with any DRX room or mobile imaging system, which can help healthcare providers maximize return on investment and reduce costs.
