Carestream Health has announced that its new premium laser imaging system, CARESTREAM DRYVIEW 6950, is now commercially available. The new laser imager is designed to produce rapid output of high-resolution images for all imaging modalities including mammography.

DRYVIEW 6950 delivers exceptional diagnostic film quality from 160 to 250 films per hour with 650 pixels-per-inch resolution on every film size. The printer includes three film supplies, and film size changes are made easy by simply exchanging film cartridges. It accommodates a wide variety of applications:

  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Computed radiology (CR)
  • Digital radiography (DR)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Full-field digital mammography (FFDM) and CR-mammography

The laser imaging system can deliver a maximum film density of 4.0, which is preferred for mammography. Key test patterns are also included to assist with mammography quality assurance procedures and regulatory requirements. A built-in densitometer measures and displays key film density values, which can eliminate the need for manual density measurements from test films.

The laser imager's intuitive user interface includes a multilingual touch-screen user panel with a built-in “help interface” to simplify instruction, operation and user training. Each cartridge holds 125 film sheets to minimise loading frequency. An optional five-bin, top-mounted sorter provides quick access to desired patient films by modality for greater efficiency and control.

CARESTREAM Smart Link remote management services provide technical support with remote monitoring and diagnostic solutions that can continuously track the status of each laser imager. In addition, users have access to Carestream’s Customer Success Network that includes a global team of experts.

Carestream offers a full portfolio of laser imagers to support small to large volume applications. The portfolio also includes the CARESTREAM DRYVIEW Chroma Imaging System, which outputs diagnostic images on film and referral prints on paper in high-quality greyscale or full colour. This imaging system, which is available in most countries, addresses multiple applications that include: PACS, CR, DR, CT, MR, PET/CT, dental, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy.
