Carestream will exhibit its DRX-Revolution mobile x-ray system at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference, which takes place from November 27 to December 2 in Chicago. While currently not available for commercial sale, this integrated digital radiography (DR) portable imaging system provides a compact design, in addition to an articulating arm and rotation column. With its small footprint, this system also offers carbon nanotube technology that significantly reduces its weight.

One of the benefits of Carestream’s DR system is its enhanced visibility both over and around the system. With its compact footprint, it’s easier to maneuver and position the platform in tight spaces. Further, its carbon nanotube technology and an advanced lithium iron phosphate battery contribute to the system’s longevity and its planned weight of 205 pounds.

The DR system is also built to operate with the company’s FDA-cleared software, which suppresses the appearance of posterior ribs and clavicles, while enhancing the visualization of soft tissue. In addition, the company plans for the DRX-Revolution Nano technology to enable sharing of a DRX detector with any DRX room or mobile imaging system—and that helps healthcare organizations maximize their investment.

“When we launched the DRX-Revolution mobile x-ray system, we introduced a new generation of mobile imaging that features an automatic collapsible column for enhanced visibility, powerful dual motor drive, long tubehead reach, and specialized image visualization software,” says Sarah Verna, global marketing manager for x-ray solutions at Carestream.
