The radiology staff at St. Luke’s Hospital, Chesterfield, Mo, reports its new Carestream DRX-Revolution mobile x-ray system is capturing up to 1,500 high-quality bedside images each month.

The DRX-Revolution captures images for ICU patients, surgery cases, and inpatients at the 493-bed hospital. Carestream’s image enhancement software creates a companion image from the original exposure to reduce the need for multiple x-ray exams.

Technologists use the system for early morning X-ray exams in the ICU, and then the system is used for inpatient exams throughout the hospital and is on call for surgeons and ICU physicians.
