Carestream Health announced that it has received FDA clearance for a new wireless digital radiography detector designed to offer high quality, low dose x-ray exams for pediatric, orthopedic, and general radiology applications. The new detector is expected to begin shipping in the third quarter of 2013. The detector can fit into a tray located underneath an incubator, so technologists can obtain the images needed to monitor the condition of these fragile babies without moving them.

Like Carestream’s DRX-1 and DRX-1C detectors, the new DRX 2530C detector can be used with any member of the DRX family of room-based and mobile imaging systems. This flexibility is part of Carestream’s commitment to enhance productivity and maximize each healthcare provider’s investment in imaging technology.
