Military deploys Kodak's ACR-2000

Eastman Kodak's ACR-2000 computed radiography systems are being used by U.S. military units to image injured or ill soldiers in Afghanistan, according to the Rochester, NY-based vendor. The CR systems, which have been specially outfitted and packaged with a portable, high-frequency x-ray system, are being supplied to the armed forces by systems integrator and digital imaging provider Mid-Atlantic Telerad of Oak Hill, VA.

The systems can send images from the x-ray tent to triage and surgery areas for viewing over a local-area network, Kodak said. In cases where a network is not available, imaging studies are copied onto CDs, which can be viewed by physicians on remote laptop computers.

The system is mounted inside a fiberglass transport container, which carries a four-wheel cart designed to allow the system to be moved across rugged terrain by a single soldier. The entire system can be strapped to a pallet and shipped aboard military cargo planes and trucks, Kodak said.
