Rochester, N.Y.-based-Carestream Health Inc. says it has rolled out a new version of its digital radiography system, Kodak DirectViewDR 3500, replacing the DR 3000 platform. According to Carestream, the system offers a small footprint, functionality and customizable digital radiograph convenience for a broad range of healthcare facilities including hospitals, outpatient imaging centers and specialty clinics.

The company says new capabilities include:

· Optional pre-programmed auto-positioning

· Auto-collimator enhancements including field size and filter are pre-programmed for each projection

· Patient positioning enhancements including a support bar for lateral chest exams and patient handles.

· A new control panel displays additional information

The DR 3500 system is motorized with a floor-mounted stand that does not require wall mounts or ceiling suspension provisions, according to Carestream. The company claims preview images are available in less than six seconds.
