New computed radiography platform generates fresh orders for Carestream Health

Carestream Health : 22 January, 2008  (New Product)
Carestream Health has signed a number of contracts for its newest computed radiography platform with leading US healthcare facilities.
The company’s Kodak Directview Classic and Elite CR Systems are compact, single-cassette systems that deliver versatility and eliminate the need for additional units by supporting general radiography, long-length, dental and mammography exams (in countries where approved for mammography applications).

The following healthcare providers are among those that have placed orders for Carestream Health’s digital imaging systems:

- Axminster Medical (Hawthorne, California, USA) ordered two Classic systems.

- Hermann Hospital (Hermann, Missouri, USA) ordered one Elite and one Classic system.

- Healthcare Midwest (Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA) purchased a Classic CR system.

- Inter-Community Memorial Hospital (Newfane, New York, USA) purchased two Classic systems.

- Iowa Health Des Moines IMMC/BCH Campus (Des Moines, Iowa, USA) purchased two Classic systems.

- Kaiser Permanente (Honolulu, Hawaii) purchased four Classic systems through Hawaii Pacific X-Ray, an authorised distributor.

- Lifetime Health (Rochester, New York, USA) ordered one Elite and two Classic systems.

- Lockport Imaging Center (Lockport, New York, USA) ordered one Classic system.

- Lockport Memorial Hospital (Lockport, New York, USA) purchased two Classic systems.

- Swedish American Hospital (Rockford, Illinois, USA) ordered one Elite system.

- Tower Imaging (Alabaster, Alabama.) ordered a Classic system.

“Our newest CR platform offers outstanding flexibility to meet the diverse needs of our healthcare customers in a variety of settings,” said Diana L Nole, president, Digital Capture Solutions, Carestream Health. “These digital systems also deliver new features and functionality that enhance staff productivity and further improve image quality.”

The Elite CR system offers a throughput of up to 90 cassettes per hour, which includes loading, scanning, erasing and ejecting a 35 x 43cm cassette. The Classic CR system features a throughput of up to 69 cassettes an hour for a 35 x 43cm cassette. Both systems incorporate Carestream Health’s new generation of CR operating software and enhanced image processing software. Automatic image rendering improves productivity by eliminating the need for technologists to identify each exam projection, while user-customised settings reduce the need for radiologists to make adjustments.
