Expanding its mobile X-ray portfolio, Carestream Health has introduced the DRX-Rise Mobile X-ray System. This digital X-ray unit gives customers a less costly path to digital imaging—or replacement or expansion of their existing DR fleet—without significant capital investment. 

“An advanced DR mobile imaging system can dramatically improve patient care, diagnostic confidence and mobile imaging throughput, but the cost of the equipment has been out of reach for some facilities,” says Jordan Berry, Global Marketing Manager, Carestream Health. “Carestream’s DRX-Rise provides the most important features of a high-end mobile digital radiography system at a price that not only makes sense, but is also justified by noticeable improvements in imaging performance, ease of use and productivity.”

Moreover, the system’s lithium battery and in-bin detector charging allow radiographers to drive farther and complete more examinations on a single charge—saving time and increasing throughput. The system’s two touchscreen displays provide two work zones to accelerate productivity further. At the same time, new drive capabilities allow the radiographer to move the lightweight system into optimal position at the bedside—from the tube head or the wireless remote control. 

The quiet DRX-Rise is suitable for use in crowded and sensitive areas, such as the ICU and NICU, with the versatility and flexibility to meet the numerous mobile imaging demands throughout a facility.

The DRX-Rise is equipped with Carestream’s ImageView Software, driven by the Eclipse processing engine with AI, that offers quality processing and images while reducing errors and increasing dose efficiency. Bringing ImageView processing to the bedside with DRX-Rise provides a comprehensive pathway to more rapid diagnosis and patient treatment. 

“The DRX-Rise Mobile X-ray System delivers high-end features that support the most critical needs in medical imaging: exceptional image quality for confident diagnosis; workflow-accelerating attributes for productivity; and a more comfortable imaging experience for patients—all without significantly impacting capital budget,” says Berry. “The new DRX-Rise system places the benefits of an advanced DR mobile system within reach, all from the manufacturer of the industry’s most popular mobile X-ray system, the DRX-Revolution.”
