Rochester, N.Y.-based Carestream Health, Inc.’s Dryview 5850 laser imager has been approved by the FDA. The machine, according to the company, is designed for digital mammography and general radiography applications.

Featuring 508 pixels-per-inch output, the Dryview 5850 addresses the need for affordable laser-quality film output from full-field digital mammography and CR-based mammography systems, the company claims. The product, which has two online film trays, supports DICOM printing for mammography and general radiography, Carestream says.

The company says its laser imagers are available in three models that range from tabletop systems designed for imaging centers to units designed for high volume, multi-modality output for hospitals of all sizes, and offer output from PACS, CT and MRI.
