Welcoming the new suites are (from left) radiographers Samantha Howells and Gemma Blackmore, superintendent radiographer Sue Walters, first patient Mary Francis, Carestream Health applications specialist Shweb Rahman, PACS administrator Richard Watkins and Carestream Health account manager for Wales Richard Evans.


The first two of six Carestream DRX- Evolution systems are now in operation at the new Aneurin Bevan Hospital in Ebbw Vale in South Wales.


The two dual detector Carestream DRX-Evolution suites combine DRX-1, described as the industry’s first cassette-sized, wireless DR detector, with the advanced functionality of Carestream Health’s award-winning Kodak DirectView DR 7500 system.


They include fully integrated wall stands with floor mounted rail systems and four-way float elevating tables to provide the positioning flexibility of a cassette-sized detector with the rapid workflow of a fully-automated DR suite.
