Carestream brings in DRX-Compass X-ray System

Focusing eye on the future, Carestream Health launches its DRX-Compass X-ray System for mid-tier hospitals and medical imaging centres worldwide. The system offers a flexible and scalable approach to digital imaging, while increasing workflow efficiency and reducing costs.

The Carestream DRX-Compass X-ray System is an upgrade-friendly unit with a set of advanced features and options. It has vertical auto-tracking and auto-centring, as well as an optional tilting wall stand to support a wide range of exams. Developed for easy positioning, this system was designed to decrease set-up time and increase throughput for every facility. The auto long-length imaging option is especially useful for patients who have trouble standing or young children who are unable to hold still for long periods.

Steve Romocki, Worldwide Product Line Manager for Radiology Systems at Carestream said, “The DRX-Compass is a fully digital unit for customers. No matter where they are today, we can build on their system, helping them navigate for where they’ll be tomorrow. A customer can choose the X-ray components that are ideal for their facility now knowing the system can be easily enhanced to meet their future needs, all while protecting their current investment.”

By providing the full benefits of a digital X-ray room, the DRX-Compass is ideal for community, rural and private hospitals. It is also well suited for urgent care centers, orthopaedic and large radiology practices. With the ability to select components for specific locations, the system can easily adapt to space requirements. Developed with customer feedback in mind, the DRX-Compass offers a bridge for healthcare facilities looking to move from an analog or retrofitted X-ray room to a digital system.
