Carestream Health (Rochester, NY, USA) was the first to introduce to the market a wireless cassette-sized detector and continues to lead the way in technology innovation by designing products and solutions that help alleviate customer pain points and help make their radiology workflow easier. Now, the Carestream Lux 35 Detector has earned the 2022 Frost & Sullivan Global New Product Innovation Award in the digital radiography detector industry. Frost & Sullivan has noted that the Lux 35 Detector “encompasses all of the attractive features of different digital radiography (DR) detectors in a single solution, making it the industry’s best DR detector.”

Weighing just around five pounds - including the battery - the sleek 14” x 17” (35 cm x 43 cm) Lux 35 Detector with its glass-free sensor is Carestream’s lightest detector to date. The lightweight, glass-free wireless detector ergonomically designed with the comfort of patients and radiographers in mind, makes it easier for radiographers to transport while making rounds and performing bedside exams. Also, the Lux 35 Detector has additional ergonomic features that reduce stress and fatigue for radiographers, allow for easier positioning, and make the exam process more comfortable for patients.

The Lux 35 Detector supports a variety of image-processing options to assist radiologists, including Tube and Line Visualization, Pneumothorax Visualization, EVP Plus, Bone Suppression and many more. It uses Carestream’s ImageView Software powered by Eclipse for high image quality and also features the X-Factor, so the detector can be shared with other compatible DRX equipment. Additionally, the Lux 35 Detector battery is backwards compatible - it works with DRX Plus Detectors and uses the same battery charger.

“Frost & Sullivan applauds Carestream’s commitment to customer prioritization that has successfully culminated in efficient product delivery,” said Ojaswi Rana, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, which applies a rigorous analytical process to evaluate each nominee for its awards.

“The Frost & Sullivan Award is another validation of our research and development team’s continued success at developing solutions that incorporate cutting-edge technology to improve radiology workflow and enhance patient care,” said Dharmendu Damany, Chief Technology Officer at Carestream. “With our first cesium iodide, glass-free Lux 35 Detector for the medical space, we provide a solution that is lightweight and provides superb resolution and better detail, and a reduced exposure as compared with gadolinium detectors.”
