Carestream Announces New Ceiling-Mounted Tube Option For DRX-Ascend Imaging System
ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Carestream has added a ceiling-mounted tube option for its DRX-Ascend
System to provide 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 and begins shipping in August.

"The DRX-Ascend delivers cost-effective, fully featured imaging that
allows hospitals, imaging centers, orthopaedic practices and urgent care
clinics to select a configuration that satisfies their imaging workflow
and budget," said Heidi McIntosh, Global Marketing Manager for X-ray
Solutions. "DRX-Ascend users and other healthcare providers are
interested in a ceiling-mounted tube because it can deliver flexible
patient positioning that helps technologists 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 orthopaedic and tabletop exams. Customers can
also opt to install a fixed 43 x 43 cm detector for the wall stand.
Carestream's multi-color touchpanel screen mounted at the tube stand
gives technologists 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 technologists
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.
The DRX-Ascend offers users the benefits of Carestream's advanced image
processing software and a consistent user interface across Carestream's
computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) systems
facilitates a smooth transition from CR to DR technology.
DRX family of systems offers fully featured mobile X-ray imaging
systems and DR rooms, and equips healthcare providers convert existing
X-ray rooms and portable systems from CR to DR using DRX detectors. The
flexibility allows any DRX detector to be used with any DRX system.
