Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream Health Inc. has launched its new Kodak point-of-care CR 360 system for delivering enhanced image quality with information management solutions such as RIS and PACS.

Designed to be compact, the tabletop product provides general radiology and dental imaging capabilities in a centralized or distributed environment, the company claims. The system’s new operating software delivers a streamlined workflow, while its DICOM capabilities allow for integration with a variety of RIS/PACS systems, providing high resolution.

The CR 360 features the ability to rotate, annotate and window level an image, and supports standard cassette sizes. It is available in 13 languages, Carestream says, and is now available for order worldwide, with shipping expected early in the second quarter of 2008.
