ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Carestream Health, Inc., has signed contracts for its computed radiography-based mammography solutions with healthcare providers in Canada. The KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR Mammography feature is available for order with new or existing CR 850/950/975 systems and the recently announced Classic and Elite CR systems. These flexible CR platforms can be used for both mammography and general radiography exams.

The following mammography providers are among those that have placed orders for the CR Mammography feature:

Courtice Medical Center (Courtice, Ontario) purchased a KODAK DIRECTVIEW CR 850 with the CR Mammography feature as a dedicated mammography unit.

Insight Medical Imaging (Spruce Grove, Alberta) purchased two KODAK DIRECTVIEW Elite CR Systems with the CR Mammography feature. One system will be a dedicated mammography unit and the other will be used for general radiography. Either system can perform mammography and general imaging, which provides full imaging redundancy for the clinic.
