Government Medical College in Kozhikode  Installs Carestream Digital Radiography Room

New System Enhances Image Quality, Expedites Workflow and Reduces Dose

Government Medical College in Kozhikode, India, installed a CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution System , to expedite imaging procedures for a wide range of complex exams, while enhancing image quality and lowering patient dose. This hospital and its associated institutes have 3,000-plus beds and serve almost 40 percent of the more than 36 million citizens of Kerala, India.

The DRX-Evolution system is installed in the hospital’s radio-diagnosis department that performs 1,000 patient exams a day. In addition to the new digital radiography system, the department has three CT scanners, two MRI scanners, two catheterization labs and 10 X-ray systems.

“This new system expedites the imaging process, which saves time for patients and also allows our staff to perform more patient exams during high-volume periods,” said Dr. V. R. Rajendran, Principal, Government Medical College, Kozhikode. “It also offers extremely high-resolution image quality, which can help enhance diagnostic accuracy, and automatic exposure control dramatically reduces dose for patient exams.

The new imaging system is equipped with two CARESTREAM DRX 43 x 43 cm detectors. One detector is installed in the wall stand and the other detector is used in the table and for tabletop exams. This automated imaging system has a ceiling unit with auto positioning, autotracking and the ability to perform standing or supine long-length imaging exams.

The DRX-Evolution system can capture multiple images that may be combined to create a long-length exam. “Long-length studies equip our hospital’s orthopaedic surgeons with the detailed diagnostic information they need to deliver the best possible outcome for our patients,” said Dr. Rajendran.

Installing the new DRX-Evolution system required room renovations. “The Carestream team worked day and night to complete the installation in just two weeks. We are extremely pleased with the dedicated effort we received from Carestream’s service, sales and support staff,” Dr. Rajendran added.

“We are happy to work with the hospital’s radiology staff to support their commitment to deliver excellent patient care,” said Sushant Kinra, Managing Director, Carestream Health India Pvt. Ltd. . “The DRX-Evolution system can improve productivity and image quality while delivering a rapid return on investment.”

The hospital also has CARESTREAM DIRECTVIEW Classic CR Systems and uses CARESTREAM DRYVIEW Laser Imagers to print images captured by the hospital’s MRI and CT imaging systems.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
