Carestream Health has introduced a new digital radiography detector in the United States and Canada, enabling hospitals and imaging centers that specialize in long-length imaging to increase productivity while decreasing both patient discomfort and dose.

Carestream Health notes with a single exposure, the CARESTREAM DRX-L Detector captures long-length images by providing a large field of view and high resolution for leg-length and spine exams. Since the image is acquired in one exposure, it decreases dose and overall exam time as compared to examinations that require multiple exposures. This approach minimizes discomfort by reducing the time that a patient needs to remain still.

“The new DRX-L Detector captures the entire long-length image dimensions—whether imaging the spine, performing a scoliosis exam or a hip-to-heel exam—with one single shot and one single exposure,” said Jill Hamman, Worldwide Marketing Manager at Carestream. “With traditional multi-shot digital radiography and multiple detectors, the technologist has to take separate shots to image the entire spine. That takes more set-up time as well as exam time.”

This can pose a challenge for patients with limited mobility or a pediatric patient with scoliosis who finds it challenging to be still. “When it’s very difficult for a patient to stand still or for any patient who is uncomfortable and in pain, even 15 seconds of capturing multiple diagnostic images can feel like an hour,” Ms. Hamman said.

A single-shot acquisition also minimizes the need for retakes and eliminates the need for the image to be manipulated and stitched due to patient movement. The DRX-L Detector uses Carestream’s ImageView Software with Eclipse Image Processing for high image quality and provides one unified image, without the need for modification. This detector also features the X-Factor, which means it can be shared with other compatible DRX equipment.

The DRX-L Detector supports a wide array of Carestream digital X-ray products, including:

“This detector will allow facilities to conduct critical long-length exams efficiently and seamlessly while delivering the highest level of care with imaging, diagnosing and treatment planning for patients,” Ms. Hamman added.
