New digital x-ray technology delivers rapid access to diagnostic images of football players at 2016 NFL Combine
In addition to demonstrating their speed, agility and strength at the 2016 National Football League Scouting Combine, top college football players also undergo comprehensive physical examinations that include X-ray exams. This year a new CARESTREAM DRX Plus 3543 detector will be used with the existing X-ray system at Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis, Ind.) to produce high-quality diagnostic images in seconds. Additional tests are conducted at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players evaluate more than 300 athletes at the Combine.
