Carestream gets FDA Clearance for Mobile X-Ray


New, more maneuverable unit joins competitors in better designed, mobile x-ray.

Carestream now has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its DRX-Revolution Mobile X-Ray System.

Carestream put the mobile x-ray front and center at RSNA 2011, but now can take orders in the US.

The unit touts a wireless detector that can be used in other Carestream unites in a hospital to improve efficiency.

It also hosts software meant to help a radiographer quickly and accurately align the top tube with a grid for better image quality.

The top column is collapsible and a dual-drive systems enables the unit to make tight turns without strain on staff. The DRX-Revolution also offers a long tube head reach, so radiographers can conduct X-ray exams in crowded spots.

It will compete with other entries in the mobile x-ray market, such as Siemens Mobilett Mira Mobile Digital X-Ray System.
