TechVision with digital image preview

Available with Carestream’s TechVision™ Technology. TechVision™ is truly an innovation for the technologist.

DRX-Ascend Systems operate with portable, wireless DRX detectors that can be used in the table as well as in the wall stand for single or dual detector scenarios.
Because they are portable, the detectors can also be used on top of the table for exams. A fixed 43 x 43 cm detector is also available for the wall stand.
