Carestream Health (Rochester, N.Y., USA) introduced a three-dimensional extension of general radiography through its Digital Tomosynthesis (DT) functionality at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference.

Carestream is a worldwide provider of medical imaging systems; X-ray imaging systems for non-destructive testing; and precision contract coating services for a wide range of industrial, medical, electronic and other applications. At RSNA 2019, Carestream featured various medical imaging solutions, including its DT technology which is an upgradable option on the DRX-Evolution Plus System for simplifying workflow and reducing exam time. Carestream’s DT technique uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and simplifies the operator’s workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation. As a result, multiple projections are acquired during a single DT acquisition sweep. The exam time is greatly reduced with DT than with traditional tomography, doing away with the trial-and-error process in locating the anatomical region of interest. Post-processing, which relies on computer software, enables the generation of as many DT slices needed at varying intervals and thickness. The DT technique will roll out along with Carestream’s Dual-Energy technology which utilizes two filter materials that enable automatic switching between the high- and low-energy exposures to produce a soft-tissue-only image with the bone structures removed, as well as a corresponding bone-only image. This differential filter approach optimizes both X-ray spectrums, achieving optimal dose efficiency. It also delivers superior image quality—at the equivalent patient exposure as a standard, non-dual-energy posterior-anterior chest radiograph.

Carestream also featured its new Focus 35C digital radiography (DR) detector with Image Suite Software that offers a budget-friendly way to tap the power of digital medical imaging. The economical retrofit solution is powered by Carestream’s Eclipse image processing engine and combines advanced image processing with broad functionality, easily transforming an analog X-ray room into digital. The enhanced software was designed with smaller facilities in mind to increase efficiency while offering a simple intuitive user interface and automated workflow. The Focus 35C Detector and Image Suite Software provide a streamlined workflow along with a complete image acquisition, management and archive system.

Carestream’s featured products at RSNA 2019 also included the OnSight 3D Extremity System which uses cone beam CT technology to capture high-quality, 3D weight-bearing and non weight-bearing upper and lower extremity exams; the DRX-Excel Plus which combines fluoroscopy and general radiology capabilities into one compact unit with accelerated workflow, high-resolution images, and easy convenient operation to provide total flexibility; the DRX-Evolution Plus which delivers a full range of features and options that make it more powerful, more dependable and more affordable than ever; the DRX-Revolution mobile X-ray system featuring excellent image quality and maneuverability; the DRX-Revolution Nano, a fully integrated DR solution that can speed workflow, boost productivity, and improve standard of care; and its X-Factor wireless, shareable DR detectors.
