Carestream Health today announced that Phoenixville Hospital (Phoenixville, Pa.) installed their CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution Plus System, two CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems and five DRX-1 Systems to serve its radiology department, ER, OR, ICU and NICU.

The hospital began converting to digital radiography several years ago to enhance image quality, boost staff productivity and deliver rapid access to images for physicians.

“The DRX-Evolution Plus system offers fully featured, high-quality imaging that delivers the fine diagnostic detail required by our orthopaedic, pediatric, trauma and other specialists. This advanced system also expedites complex procedures to streamline workflow,” said Diane Zglenski, the hospital’s Radiology Supervisor.

“The table also lowers to a height of about 21 inches, which is extremely helpful in imaging ill or injured patients,” she adds. The DRX-Evolution Plus system captures cross-table, trauma, scoliosis, long-length, spine, extremity studies and general X-ray exams. The room is equipped with a CARESTREAM DRX 4343C cesium iodide detector and a standard-size detector. The wall stand houses the large detector while the standard detector is used for table and tabletop exams.

The system is equipped with optional Carestream software that automatically stitches images together to create long-length exams, which saves time.

Two DRX-Revolution mobile imaging systems capture exams for inpatients and critical care patients. Each portable system has optional Carestream software that can enhance imaging of PICC lines and detection of pneumothorax.

“Our physicians and interventional radiologists appreciate having this software on portable systems so they can clearly see any abnormalities in the chest and determine if a biopsy or other procedure is needed,” said Ms. Zglenski. “We also implemented this software with our DRX-Evolution Plus system to ensure we are delivering the highest level of care for our patients.”

She adds that Carestream DRX detectors are well built and have survived drops, been recalibrated and tested and then returned to service.
