Wireless Detectors

Detectors that go and grow with you

At the heart of the DRX Family is the world’s first wireless, cassette-sized detector. It works across all DRX imaging equipment and allows you to share detectors across facilities, wherever they are needed the most.

Setting new standards in efficiency and reliability

The original Carestream DRX detector set a new standard for detector performance. The new DRX Plus detector now delivers greater speed, easier handling and improved reliability.

Carestream’s DRX detectors feature:

  • Wireless connectivity to eliminate the hassles and hazards of cables and reduce the risk of infection.
  • Instant access to images to speed decisions on patient care.
  • Ability to share detectors between any DRX room or any mobile DRX system.
  • A separate battery charger that allows the detector to be used while a spare battery is being charged.
