Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, Brookhaven, NY, recently installed two Carestream DRX-Revolution mobile x-ray systems in its emergency department and ICU to help enhance patient care.
“The advanced functionality of the DRX-Revolution system allows our technologists to quickly and easily produce exceptionally high-quality images of seriously ill or injured patients,” said Chris Schneider, the hospital’s director of radiology imaging services. “Thanks to its powerful 32kW generator and DRX detector, we have lowered exposures—and the tube and grid alignment system simultaneously enhances image quality by facilitating grid use.”
Carestream’s product features tube and line visualization software that instantly verifies the placement of tubes and peripherally inserted central catheter lines. “Being able to verify the tubes and line placement in seconds is a huge improvement over waiting for CR images,” Schneider said. “And this system reprocesses the original image, so we don’t need to perform a second exposure.”
Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center operates as a 306-bed acute-care, voluntary not-for-profit community hospital that serves Suffolk County residents.
