A new flexible solution for both fluoroscopy and general radiology delivers real-time, high-quality images for a wide range of exams while providing important features that help create an enhanced experience for users, patients, and administrators.

Carestream Health (Rochester, NY, USA) has launched its new and enhanced DRX-Excel Plus X-ray System - a powerful, two-in-one solution that enables more productivity and efficiency, improves image quality, and enhances the imaging experience for users and patients. The system comes with new features that help simplify workflow and enhance productivity such as the automatic grid parking feature directly linked to the exam which is especially useful for extremity and pediatric exams. It also features automatic filter control that selects the proper filters as per the type of exam and the patient’s morphology. The touchscreen interface on the tube head displays patient information and exam details as soon as the patient enters the room. Additionally, all table movements can be controlled by the radiographer from the touch screen, enabling easy setup of either fluoroscopy or radiography settings.

The DRX-Excel Plus X-ray System allows for automatic positioning of all table axes depending on the selected exam with the flexibility to control table movements using foot pedals, a remote, or from the console depending on the user’s preference. Besides improving workflow, the DRX-Excel Plus X-ray System also has new features to help limit radiation dose. A camera integrated into the collimators enables the radiographer to position the patient directly from the console without using fluoroscopy. In addition, the automatic filter control feature helps ensure that the radiographer selects the proper dose. The system’s rich set of new features also enhances patient experience. The faster workflow reduces study time, making the exam process easier for patients. These complement the system’s existing patient comfort features such as the industry’s lowest­table height and relaxing, ambient lighting and music. Optimized to support large-and-midsize hospitals and medical centers, the DRX-Excel Plus X-ray System combines the power of fluoroscopy and general radiology in one compact unit at an affordable price to deliver high-resolution images for an accelerated workflow while offering a wide range of exams. It is available as a dRF configuration with a single, flat-panel digital detector for both RAD and fluoroscopy or with an additional overhead tube for added flexibility.

“The expanded features, which are made easily accessible to radiographers, make the imaging workflow more efficient and easier,” said Marco Riolfo, Global Marketing Manager, Digital Radiography Rooms at Carestream. “With increased efficiency, radiographers have additional time to focus on patients, which helps to ease patients’ anxiety and increases their satisfaction with the imaging experience.”
