Kodak of Rochester, NY, will show DirectView 7500, a new DirectView digital radiography (DR) system as a work-in-progress at this year's RSNA show. The system comes in single- and dual-detector configurations.

The new system will feature a wall stand (with detector) with a retractable bucky capable of three-axis movement for capturing a wide range of upright, horizontal, and cross-table projections. The detector can be controlled manually or via a push-button control that's synchronized to the overhead x-ray tube. This enables users to automatically center the system's beam to ensure accurate source-to-detector alignment, according to Kodak.

DirectView 7500 also has a fixed four-way-float table (with detector) that can be used alone or combined into a dual-detector configuration. The detector bucky can be extended from the table to accommodate extremity exams, while an autopositioning feature enables the equipment to move into a preprogrammed position when a technologist selects a preprogrammed study.

An integrated operator console controls all imaging functions to expedite workflow and increase productivity. The system will also feature the same touch-screen operator interface as other Kodak DirectView CR and DR systems.

Kodak will also demonstrate its DirectView Capture Link system, which enables technologists to identify and process CR cassettes and review images at any linked CR system or DirectView remote operations panel.
