Small-Format Cesium Iodide X-ray Detector

The newly designed small-format DRX Plus 2530C Detector from Carestream incorporates  cesium iodide technology, has a resolution of 98 microns and delivers enhanced resolution to capture the fine detail of smaller anatomical structures such as those in pediatric patients. This new detector allows quick and easy positioning in the incubator trays of pediatric bassinettes of all sizes. The cesium iodide design is ideal for dose-sensitive pediatric applications and the detector also provides convenient, comfortable positioning for a wide range of extremity exams.

The new 25 x 30 cm detector offers beam-sensing technology and a built-in wireless access point that simplify installation and represent important improvements to Carestream’s first small-format detector. The detector also delivers longer battery life to support continued use throughout the day and night.

“Our new detector will offer valuable improvements in small-format imaging throughout the hospital—from the NICU to orthopaedics, surgery or tabletop exams,” said Jill Hamman, Carestream’s Worldwide Marketing Manager for Global X-ray Solutions. “It also addresses requests from healthcare professionals for enhanced diagnostic image resolution.”

The new detector features Carestream’s X-Factor system that can help enhance productivity and convenience since any of the company’s DRX Plus detectors can be used with any DRX imaging system to help ensure continuous uptime and greater imaging flexibility.
