Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray

Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray

Digital radiology is on the move like never before with the CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System. The industry’s only mobile x-ray system with a fully automatic collapsible column has arrived. The days of blindly navigating tall, bulky units through hallways and around bedside monitors are over. Powered by a wireless DRX detector, this x-ray room on wheels drives like a dream and gives you fast, high-quality images.

A revolutionary imaging system that drives like a dream.

The tight and cluttered spaces of the ICU, ER and OR are no match for the mobility of the CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution.

So easy to maneuver, you can make a 360-degree turn while steering it with just one hand.

An automatic collapsible column shrinks the system to just over four feet tall, giving you complete visibility when moving the system to any location.

The powerful dual motor drive makes moving the system effortless—in forward or reverse.

A long tubehead reach gives you easy access to the patient in crowded rooms.

Two touch-screen displays enable prior image review, technique changes and image acceptance or rejection from either location.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 19 — Carestream received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray System, and is now accepting orders from U.S. healthcare facilities. European and Canadian healthcare providers are also placing orders since the DRX-Revolution previously received approvals from the medical device regulatory agencies in those regions. This next-generation mobile DR system delivers outstanding image quality, provides easy maneuverability and comes with numerous productivity-enhancing features.

“The DRX-Revolution satisfies specific needs voiced by dozens of radiology professionals who were involved in the product’s design process. It features an easy-to-position tube head and a compact design that provides improved visibility and greater safety when moving this portable digital X-ray system,” said Diana Nole, President, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. “Healthcare providers are eager to deploy this fully-featured X-ray room on wheels to help enhance care for seriously ill or injured patients.”

The DRX-Revolution enhances image quality for portable exams thanks to its powerful 32kW generator, DRX detector and special software that enables the radiographer to easily align the tube with a grid. Use of a grid can improve image quality and the alignment tool can reduce retakes and make alignment to a grid more efficient for the radiographer.

This new mobile DR system also features a unique, collapsible column that allows unobstructed views for enhanced visibility and safety while moving the system. Its dual-drive system and the ability to make tight, 360-degree turns in small spaces like those found in an ICU, ED or operating room enables the unit to be quickly and properly positioned to capture an image.

Long Tube Head Reach Enhances Positioning

Carestream’s DRX-Revolution also offers a long tube head reach, making it easier for radiographers to quickly and effectively conduct X-ray exams despite the crowded presence of bedside medical equipment. All these features lead to rapid positioning; minimal intrusion on staff and surrounding equipment; and faster capture of high-quality X-ray images for use by clinicians.

The system’s two monitors (the main 19-inch monitor and the 8-inch tube head monitor) provide two work zones, which further helps improve productivity and performance. Designed as a DR system from the ground up, there is a place for everything: generous storage space for gloves, sanitizers, markers, paperwork and much more.

With fast, single sign-in (via password or badge swipe) this portable digital X-ray unit can be powered up quickly and ready to go. The DRX-Revolution uses the same software and graphic user interface as other CARESTREAM DRX products for ease of use, which improves productivity and allows technologists to proficiently deploy the imaging system with minimal training.

The DRX-Revolution system also shares the same DRX-1/DRX-1C wireless detectors as the rest of Carestream’s DRX family that includes: CARESTREAM DRX-1 System, CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit, CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution modular DR suite, CARESTREAM DRX-Transportable System; and CARESTREAM DRX-Ascend System.

DRX-based systems offer compelling options since these wireless detectors can be used in multiple X-ray systems at a facility. For example, a detector can be used in a mobile unit for early morning hospital rounds and then moved to a general radiology room. DRX detectors can also move from day use in general radiology rooms to mobile systems that serve the ED at night. Carestream refers to the versatility of its DRX detectors as the “X-Factor.”

The exceptional flexibility and image quality offered by the DRX family of digital X-ray systems makes these solutions an ideal fit for general radiography exams including orthopedic, trauma and pediatric as well as other specialty care environments.

Carestream Health, Inc. has announced the launch of its new DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray System, which incorporates a number of improvements to existing portable X-Ray systems.

The DRX-Revolution is driven by two motors for easy movement, and it has a collapsible column, allowing the entire system to shrink to four feet tall to allow for better mobility when it is being transported. In addition to its enhanced portability, the DRX-Revolution uses onboard software to provide enhanced image quality and to reduce the need for retakes.n4kwpxxl Carestream Launches New Mobile X Ray System With Improved Mobility and Image Quality

From the announcement:

Physicians will quickly appreciate the excellent image quality produced by the DRX-Revolution due to its powerful 32kW generator, DRX detector and special software that enables the radiographer to easily align the tube with the grid to optimize image quality. This solves the difficulty in aligning the x-ray tube—the main reason that inhibits grid usage overall—which can lead to fewer image retakes and faster diagnosis for patients who are confined to their beds and in need of urgent care.

Carestream’s DRX-Revolution also offers the longest tube head reach available anywhere, making it easier for radiographers to quickly and effectively conduct x-ray exams despite the crowded presence of bedside medical equipment.

Having launched its DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray System last September, Carestream has announced that it now has FDA approval to sell the device in the U.S. The DRX-Revolution is a fully mobile X-ray featuring an automatic collapsible column, a wireless DRX detector, and two touch-screens (one at the base and one on the arm) to operate with efficiency and flexibility.

The system already has both European and Canadian approvals.
