Presence Saint Joseph Hospital (Elgin, Ill.) installed a CARESTREAM
DRX-Evolution Standard-Q configuration and a CARESTREAM
DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System to enhance speed and image
quality for inpatient, emergency, and outpatient imaging exams performed
at its 184-bed facility. The quality, safety and access benefits of
these systems appeal to both clinicians and patients.
CARESTREAM DRX-Evolution Standard-Q configuration
“X-ray image quality is significantly improved for our patients with
this conversion, which lowered radiation dose by up to 30 percent. In
addition, our radiologists and physicians report that the exceptional
visualization of anatomy has helped improve care for all our patients,
especially critical care and large or obese patients,” said Sandy
Lancaster, CRA, ARRT(R), the hospital’s manager of medical imaging.
“The use of advanced digital imaging systems also reduced our rate of
repeat X-ray exams as the original image consistently provides the
diagnostic information that helps enable our radiologists and physicians
to make an accurate diagnosis,” Lancaster reported.
In addition to general radiology exams, the DRX-Evolution Standard-Q
configuration also performs outpatient exams since it is close to the
hospital’s outpatient imaging center. The mobile DRX-Revolution is used
in the ER, ICU and surgical suites in addition to capturing bedside
“The DRX-Revolution is used all day throughout the hospital because it
delivers immediate image access and excellent image quality, which are
especially important for critical care and emergent exams,” Lancaster
explained. “Carestream’s advanced imaging software also enhances
visualization of tubes and lines as well as pneumothorax (free air in
the chest cavity), which equips our physicians to make rapid decisions
in critical care situations.”
She added that the DRX-Evolution Standard-Q configuration has helped the
hospital’s staff achieve its goals of faster image access and higher
image quality at an affordable price. The digital imaging suite, which
features an overhead tube and a non-motorized wall stand and table, is
used by hospitals around the world.
The CARESTREAM DRX-Revolution Mobile X-ray System features exceptional
maneuverability and excellent image quality. Carestream’s X-Factor
design offers flexibility by enabling each DRX detector to work with all
other DRX systems within a provider’s environment.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
