Carestream Health will showcase its solutions for expanding to digital radiography (DR) at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2021 conference on November 28-December 2 in Chicago. 

With Carestream’s DR Retrofit systems, imaging facilities that have not yet fully upgraded to DR can move forward to full wireless DR imaging at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new system, according to the company. Carestream’s retrofit solutions—both rooms and mobiles—use a single wireless detector to convert existing equipment to full digital operation, delivering all the provider and patient benefits of a DR system.

“Carestream’s retrofit solutions help facilities convert to digital quickly and cost effectively,” says Jill Hamman, worldwide marketing manager of global x-ray solutions at Carestream. “They empower facilities to leverage their current investment while upgrading to DR productivity to gain workflow efficiencies and enhance patient care.”

Carestream’s self-powered and rechargeable DRX-Transportable System/Lite features a lightweight wireless tablet that allows for the capture and viewing of images at the point of care.

Another pathway to full wireless digital imaging is through Carestream’s affordable Focus 35C and 43C detectors. Focus detectors—available in two sizes, 35×43 and 43×43—are designed for sites currently using film or computed radiography. When paired with Image Suite Software, Focus 35C and 43C detectors present a budget-friendly digital solution, providing high-quality image capture for better diagnoses and care, according to the company.

RSNA 2021 attendees can learn more about the DR Retrofit systems and Focus detectors at Carestream booth #7316 in North Hall.
