Carestream Spotlights New Medical Imaging, Healthcare IT Systems At World’s Largest Radiology Conference
Carestream Health demonstrated its expanding portfolio of medical imaging and healthcare IT systems designed to enhance the diagnostic review process for X-ray exams and expedite delivery of results to physicians and patients at the annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) tradeshow.
“We work closely with healthcare providers to develop new medical imaging systems that improve the quality of diagnostic information provided to clinicians,” said Ted Taccardi, Vice President, Global Customer Care and Chief Operating Officer, Medical Digital at Carestream. “We also created an intelligent workflow for managing the reading of imaging exams, which can expedite delivery of a diagnosis to physicians and their patients.”
New products on display include:
- The CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System that uses carbon nanotube technology to deliver a smaller, lighter weight mobile X-ray system that is easier to move and position even in cramped patient care areas. (It is scheduled for availability in 2018; not currently available for sale.)
- Carestream’s Workflow Orchestrator (video) module that streamlines the process of reading and reporting results for patients’ CT, MR, X-ray and other types of imaging studies. It assesses each imaging study and routes it to the most appropriate general or specialty radiologist, while ensuring that all studies are read efficiently. This platform is available for order and is expected to begin shipping in the first quarter of 2018.
- New metal artifact reduction software for Carestream’s OnSight 3D Extremity System that can reduce the visual distortion caused by screws, implants, rods and other metal objects used in orthopaedic surgery to create improved diagnostic confidence. This software is pending FDA 510(k) Clearance.
- The company’s MyVue Center Self-Service Kiosk that equips patients to view and share their medical images and radiology reports with physicians, friends or family members.
