and patient throughput.
Elite CR System

Compact, single cassette CR systems designed to improve

workflow, productivity, and patient throughput.
The KODAK DIRECTVIEW Elite CR System is small, easy to install and easy to use. This
powerful distributed CR system is capable of producing high quality images with a
footprint that is compact enough to be placed in an x-ray room or an x-ray control console
room. The KODAK DIRECTVIEW Elite CR System uses industry standard cassette sizes
including 15 x 30 cm for dental imaging, as well as 35 x 84 cm for long length imaging
for scoliosis and extremity imaging.
Ideal for hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, multi-specialty clinics, and
private practices, the KODAK DIRECTVIEW Elite CR System is a unique product
in Carestream Health’s CR portfolio. It is designed for distributed and central
CR applications where image quality, rapid image availability, lower costs,
and high departmental productivity are critical success factors.
