Carestream’s nano mobile X-ray helps prevent spread of infection at Virginia Commonwealth University Health’s NICU
Carestream Health’s DRX-Revolution Nano Mobile X-ray System is helping to avoid the possible spread of hospital-acquired infection from adult patients to the youngest patients in Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health System’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
VCU Health, an academic medical centre, installed the DRX-Revolution Nano as a unit dedicated solely to the NICU.
“Having one system dedicated to the floor will help reduce the chances of hospital-acquired infections going from patient to patient and room to room,” said Robert Jarvis III, Diagnostic Imaging Modality Manager at VCU Health.
The DRX-Revolution Nano’s compact footprint allows for easy positioning in critical care units, while providing high-quality digital radiography imaging.
“We made the purchase with the mindset that it will support the NICU population in our hospital, and the small footprint makes it easy to get in and out of the rooms,” Jarvis added.
VCU Health has a large fleet of Carestream DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray Systems, as well as the Carestream DRX-Evolution Plus system.
Carestream’s X-Factor platform lets facilities share the same wireless detector seamlessly across all Carestream DRX products and allows technologists to move easily between different systems with minimal training time, speeding up workflow and exams.
“The biggest advantage is the graphical user interface with the software,” said Jarvis, who also praised Carestream’s image quality. “I can train someone on the DRX-Evolution Plus because it’s the same software on the DRX-Revolution and the Nano. They can go to any Carestream system and pick it up right away.”
