Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Dallas, Texas, recently installed two Carestream DRX-Evolution DR Rooms and one DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System to help enable enhanced image quality and reduced dose for its pediatric patients.

The systems enable the hospital to improve image quality, help reduce dose by 30-50% and achieve the same positioning as a CR cassette.

The DRX-Evolution systems perform about 2,000 images a month at the 100-bed pediatric hospital and are used for a variety of imaging studies.

The DRX-Evolution DR Room is a versatile digital radiography system with configurable, modular components that can be combined to fit the space, workflow and budget requirements of each health care facility. This system can perform a wide variety of general radiographic exams with convenience, productivity and patient comfort. DRX detectors can significantly lower X-ray exposure when compared to CR cassettes.

The DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System is a versatile mobile X-ray system that features a small footprint, exceptional maneuverability, excellent image quality and wireless communication of medical exams. This system’s interface can help improve staff productivity and the system’s tubehead monitor allows technologists to remain at the bedside during the imaging process.
