Carestream DRX-1 System

What is it?

The DRX-1 System captures digital radiography images using the conventional x-ray equipment and procedures. This system features the world's first wireless cassette-sized DR detector (simply slides into table or wall-stand for table top projection capabilities).
The lightweight DRX-1 detector simply slides into your table or wall-stand bucky, or can be used for tabletop projections, just like a conventional cassette. It also serves as the center-point of the DRX Family—a complete line of innovative DR products that includes the DRX Mobile Retrofit Kit and DRX-Evolution modular DR suite.

Converting to digital radiography (DR) is fast, easy, and cost-effective with the CARESTREAM DRX-1 System—featuring the worlds first cassette-sized wireless DR detector that fits your existing equipment.

The DRX-Mobile Retrofit Kit allows the Heartland Regional Medical Center team to take the portable x-ray unit to the room when the department is extremely busy, to capture extremity, chest, and other portable shots to speed patient care. Because they don't have to move the patient around, Andrews reports at least 10-15 minutes of "lessened" patient time in the emergency department.
