A new option for the Kodak DirectView DR 9000 digital radiography system may accelerate treatment and improve care at trauma centers by minimizing the movement of critically injured patients. The transbay option involves installing overhead rails up to 30 feet long. The rails allow the Kodak DR system to move to as many as three different patient locations in rapid succession. Installation can be customized to meet the unique needs of individual hospital trauma centers. The company claims that a movable DR 9000 system, supported by other specialized equipment, allows the assessment and stabilization of patients in 15 minutes instead of the typical 45 minutes. In addition to the potential patient benefits of initiating treatment earlier, the ability to rapidly assess multiple trauma patients promises substantial cost savings and enhanced productivity, according to Kodak.
