US-based Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has installed a new Carestream DRX-revolution mobile X-ray system.

The 598-bed hospital captures around 100 X-ray imaging studies a day in its emergency department trauma bays and multiple critical care areas.

According to dental and medical imaging systems provider Carestream, the new mobile imaging system helps the physicians and staff in accessing high-quality images in as little as five seconds.

The specialised imaging software of the system creates secondary images from the initial X-ray exposure, which are designed to optimise visibility of PICC lines and tracheal tubes that need to be correctly positioned.

Images will be wirelessly transmitted in seconds to the hospital’s PACS image management system, which will help radiologists and clinicians to take on-time treatment decisions.

The dose date will be forwarded to the hospital’s dose reporting system by the new imaging system, which allows monitoring and reporting dose for CT and interventional radiography procedures.
