Having launched its DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray System last September, Carestream has announced that it now has FDA approval to sell the device in the U.S. The DRX-Revolution is a fully mobile X-ray featuring an automatic collapsible column, a wireless DRX detector, and two touch-screens (one at the base and one on the arm) to operate with efficiency and flexibility.
The system already has both European and Canadian approvals.
Some details from the announcement:
The DRX-Revolution enhances image quality for portable exams thanks to its powerful 32kW generator, DRX detector and special software that enables the radiographer to easily align the tube with a grid. Use of a grid can improve image quality and the alignment tool can reduce retakes and make alignment to a grid more efficient for the radiographer.
This new mobile DR system also features a unique, collapsible column that allows unobstructed views for enhanced visibility and safety while moving the system. Its dual-drive system and the ability to make tight, 360-degree turns in small spaces like those found in an ICU, ED or operating room enables the unit to be quickly and properly positioned to capture an image.
Carestream’s DRX-Revolution also offers a long tube head reach, making it easier for radiographers to quickly and effectively conduct X-ray exams despite the crowded presence of bedside medical equipment. All these features lead to rapid positioning; minimal intrusion on staff and surrounding equipment; and faster capture of high-quality X-ray images for use by clinicians.
The system’s two monitors (the main 19-inch monitor and the 8-inch tube head monitor) provide two work zones, which further helps improve productivity and performance. Designed as a DR system from the ground up, there is a place for everything: generous storage space for gloves, sanitizers, markers, paperwork and much more.
