Erie County Medical Center Corporation (ECMC, Buffalo, N.Y.) is deploying two DirectView DR 7500 Systems from Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream Health, Inc. in its new digital Orthopaedic X-Ray Suite.

The DR 7500 system’s single- and dual-detector configurations offer flexibility for a variety of general radiography examinations, including trauma, touts the company. Carestream Health’s DirectView Capture Link System integrates its DR and/or CR Systems to improve digital workflow and productivity in high-traffic areas when a patient study includes both CR and DR images, it adds.

ECMC is the regional center for trauma, burn care, rehabilitation and is a major teaching facility for the State University of New York at Buffalo. The ECMC Corporation includes an advanced academic medical center with 550 inpatient beds.
