Blessing Hospital, Quincy, Ill, purchased three CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution suites, three CARESTREAM DRX-1 systems, and two CARESTREAM DRX-Mobile retrofit kits for the hospital and its outpatient imaging center.

Equipped with a wireless DRX detector and system software, technologists have produced greater efficiency in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The facility has also decreased the radiation dose for inpatients and outpatients. The hospital uses its existing grids with the DRX detectors to further enhance imaging results.

“Our goal was to convert from CR to DR systems to deliver image quality gains and faster access to patient images, which is especially important in our ICU and surgical suites,” said Candace Tretter, Blessing Hospital’s director of radiology services.
