Carestream’s Dual-Energy Imaging Technology Cleared
Carestream received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Dual-Energy imaging technology and its Focus 35C Detector with image suite software.
The dual-energy system uses two filter materials that are automatically switched between the high- and low-energy exposures to produce a soft-tissue-only image with the bone structures removed, as well as a corresponding bone-only image.
The Focus 35C Detector with image suite software offers smaller facilities and specialty practices a way to use digital medical imaging. The software provides an image in a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) format.
