Memorial Medical Center, Springfield, Ill, announces the purchase of two Carestream DRX-Evolution Systems, from Carestream Health, and a recent upgrade to digital radiography (DR) technology.

Memorial Medical plans to use the new DRX-Evolution modular digital radiography systems in its busy emergency department (ED) and outpatient imaging center.

The system can track multiple detectors and expedite the capture of exam information, delivering rapid patient throughput via wireless DRX-1 detectors. Its modular design can be easily expanded to address changes in radiology workflow and number of exams, and it offers a wall stand with six-axis motion and a four-way float elevating table.

Additionally, the hospital also installed Carestream DRX-1 systems to convert four general radiology rooms from computed radiography (CR) to DR, to provide patients with the benefits of immediate image capture offered by DR technology.
