Carestream Health Inc., unveiled new software for its DR 7500 digital radiography system that delivers greater user control over image display, more consistent presentation of images across soft copy and hard copy devices, and enhanced image processing algorithms.
The new software contains KODAK DIRECTVIEW EVP Plus, which provides more consistent image presentation and orthogonal control of image processing. This sophisticated algorithm allows for simple and independent control of brightness, latitude, detail contrast and other parameters. In addition, a new tool available with EVP Plus allows for images to be calibrated to radiologist preferences, which optimizes image presentation and reduces the need for reprocessing. The software also supports an unlimited number of body parts and projections
The new KODAK DIRECTVIEW DR software has a customizable user interface and provides 45 new electronic image markers to improve communication between technologists, radiologists and referring physicians. Its updated graphic user interface can improve efficiency because most used functions are more visible and easier to access, and is consistent with Carestream Health’s CR user interface to boost productivity and reduce cross training of technologists. Reporting software delivers data that can be used by radiology administrators to help improve image quality, determine the need for technologist training and boost staff productivity.
