RSNA 2022: Carestream updates and expands product portfolio

At the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, medical imaging company Carestream launched a new series of digital X-ray detectors to help improve clinical outcomes, as well as enhancements to its existing product portfolio.

The company is displaying its expanding portfolio of medical imaging systems that are designed to provide quantifiable benefits to healthcare organizations and their patients, including: 

  • New Carestream Focus HD 35 and Focus HD 43 detectors that offer higher resolution with a 100 micron pixel pitch that allows for image magnification for better visibility of small objects and microstructures. The detectors’ Cesium (CsI) scintillator is optimized for dose-sensitive pediatric patients; and the detectors have an IP56 rating for better protection against dust and fluid ingress.
  • A new solution for long-length imaging, the Carestream DRX-LC Detector1 captures long-bone and spine images with a single exposure, designed for pediatric imaging and long-bone and spine images of people with limited mobility. In contrast, the traditional multi-shot approach requires three to five exposures followed by manipulation and stitching of the images. The new detector is designed to capture the full image in a single exposure to minimize dose and mitigate motion artifact that can appear from patient movement with a multi-shot exam. The DRX-LC Detector is designed with X-Factor so the detector can be shared across different Carestream X-ray systems and is compatible with both rooms and mobile units.
  • Enhancements to the Carestream DRX-Evolution Plus that provide improved patient comfort and a better ergonomic experience along with improved workflow for the radiographer. Its new tabletop design eliminates rails that can cause strain and discomfort for both radiographer and patient, enabling patients to be moved more smoothly and with less effort to the exam table.
  • New features in the Carestream DRX-Excel Plus provide a better staff experience with faster workflow and better diagnostic image quality. Designed specifically for large and mid-size hospitals and medical centers, this system combines fluoroscopy and general radiology capabilities in one compact unit. It delivers accelerated workflow, high-resolution images and a wide range of patient exam options. 

“Our commitment to quickly respond to the needs of the radiology community with ideas that clearly work is as strong as ever, and we are solidly positioned to continue developing solutions that have quantifiable benefits to our customers and their patients,” said David C. Westgate, Chairman, President and CEO of Carestream. “Organizations can have complete confidence in our ability to provide high-value technology that helps lower costs, and improves imaging workflow for radiology departments, technologists and other healthcare professionals—all with the goal of improving patient care.”
