Carestream Health is providing healthcare facilities with a new floor-mount option for the DRX-Compass X-ray System. This valuable optiondelivers an innovative, flexible and efficient medical imaging solution to sites that are unable to accommodate an overhead tube crane.

The free-standing tube mount eliminates the need for ceiling railsbut still provides the wall stand, table and console features, the same as the overhead tube crane,” said Jing Chu, Worldwide Product Marketing Manager at Carestream. “This option will offer smaller facilities or sites with tighter budgets the ability to use the DRX-Compass andput Carestreams exceptional image capture and processing to work.

The CARESTREAM DRX-Compass X-ray System (see videolink) is an upgrade-friendly unit with a broad array of advanced features and options to meet changing needs. It has vertical auto-tracking and auto-centering, as well as an optional tilting wall stand to support a wide range of exams. Developed for easy positioning, this system was designed to decrease set-up time and increase throughput for every facility. Its intuitive, graphical user interface reduces training time for radiographers and allows for a secure, swipe-and-go login. The auto long-length imaging option is especially useful for patients who have trouble standing or young children who are unable to hold still for long periods of time.

Whatever your modality right now, and wherever you need to go in the future, we have the upgrade strategy to get you thereseamlessly,Ms. Chu said. The DRX-Compass isdesigned to keep costs in line with a facility’s needs by being scalable and upgradable.

With the ability to select components for specific locations, the system can easily adapt to space requirements. The DRX-Compass offers a bridge for healthcare facilities looking to move from an analog or retrofitted X-ray room to a digital system. Through Carestreams Image view clinical acquisition software, powered by Eclipse image processing, healthcare facilities can add capabilities to their DRX-Compass systems as needed over time.

“This system has just the right selection of features and options to take workflow to a new level of efficiency, Ms. Chusaid. With the new floor-mount option, Carestream once again offers facilities a way to meet their needs today as well as tomorrow.
