Carestream Health India's Carestream DRX-Ascend system is designed for small to mid-size hospital radiology departments, imaging centers, clinics, and specialists' offices. The DR system offers a versatile, floor-mounted tube stand and a wide and elevating float-top table with a patient weight capacity of 295 kg.

The system's floor-mounted design saves space and reduces installation costs, while the wireless, cassette-size DRX detector provides exceptional X-ray positioning flexibility. The DRX detector can be moved from the wall stand to the table and can handle tabletop exams. Higher-volume facilities may want to use two detectors to enhance productivity. The DRX-Ascend features innovative TechVision technology that allows technologists to view digital radiography exams, change-generator techniques, and preview images using a touch-panel screen mounted on the tube stand. Allowing a technologist to remain at the patient's side during the exam simultaneously enhances care and productivity. The DRX detectors can be shared with room-based and mobile imaging systems to make the most of the capital investment. For example, a hospital could use the DRX detector in its mobile X-ray system for early morning portable exams and then place it in the DRX-Ascend system for daytime imaging studies.

The Carestream DRX-Ascend system is well suited for smaller rooms, imaging centers, and orthopedic applications. This floor-mounted DR system delivers high-end features at an affordable price.
