Dewsbury and District improves technology in DR room

Dewsbury and District Hospital in Yorkshire has selected the Carestream DRX Evolution Plus for its latest digital x-ray room. Staff were attracted by the auto-positioning and faster processing times to increase throughput and efficiency without detriment to image quality.

The hospital offers a range of medical, rehabilitation and surgical services and staff need continuous access to the latest digital x-ray technology. During the procurement process for its new x-ray room, the hospital found the DRX Evolution Plus solution met its requirements most closely.

“As a department we are pleased with the equipment we have procured, as it allows us to enable a better patient experience, using better technology and improved image quality,” said x-ray team lead Sue Barker.

The room uses the wireless cassette-sized DRX Plus detector and EVP Plus image processing software. The single detector platform works across a range of DRX equipment, letting customers build a system that suits their facility and budget. With a wide range of vertical and horizontal movement, a higher weight capacity table, enhanced paediatric capabilities and an extended tube column range, the equipment can be operated manually or fully automated.
