October 20, 2015 -- Carestream Health has introduced Motion Mobile, a mobile x-ray offering that can be upgraded from a computed radiography (CR) system to a wireless digital radiography (DR) unit.

The compact system features a balanced and articulating arm, a 30-kW generator, and an 8-inch touchscreen monitor, according to the vendor. It also offers a manual or anatomical programmed radiography (APR) mode for selecting exam techniques as well as push-button or hand switch-controlled exposures, Carestream said.

While it can be purchased as CR system, a DR retrofit upgrade adds the vendor's DRX-1 or DRX Plus detectors, a 19-inch touchscreen monitor, and other features, Carestream said. In addition, a dose-area product (DAP) and x-ray generator interface automatically acquires DAP and technique information to monitor patient dose. Motion Mobile supports the sharing of a DRX detector among multiple Carestream DRX imaging systems.

The company's DirectView software is also included, providing image display and delivery to PACS or printers. Motion Mobile can currently be ordered only by customers in Europe, Latin America, and other countries outside of North America, according to the vendor. Shipments are expected to begin in December.
