Product Description

The DIRECTVIEW Elite CR System is designed for distributed and central CR applications where image quality, rapid image availability, lower costs and high departmental productivity are paramount.

  • Produces high quality images with a footprint that is compact enough to be placed in an x-ray room or control console room.
  • Integrates a central database with multiple workstations to improve workflow, productivity and patient throughput.

Improved Workow and Patient Throughput
The Classic and Elite CR Systems are small, easy to install and simple to
use. These distributed CR systems produce high-quality images, yet have
footprints small enough for an X-ray room or an X-ray control console
room. They use a wide range of industry-standard cassette sizes, including
15 x 30 cm for dental imaging, and 35 x 84 cm for long-length imaging
of scoliosis and extremities.

These two solutions offer an identical set of high-performance features,
with two throughput options:

  • The Classic CR System handles up to 69 cassettes per hour,* making it ideal for small and mid-sized facilities.
  • The Elite CR System operates at up to 90 cassettes per hour,* to meet the needs of larger facilities with higher workow volume.

* When using a 35 cm x 43 cm cassette, with system in high-speed scan
mode. Times for other cassette sizes are the same or less. Time for image
access at a network device is dependent on network performance.

Improved Productivity Made Affordable
With a low capital investment and low operating costs, the Classic and Elite CR Systems help your facility meet budget requirements – without compromising performance. Their ease of use helps reduce costly retakes, while their speed of operation saves time and additional dollars. Plus, digital-quality images are faster and easier to read, which enhancesradiologist productivity.


  • Processes medium-to-high image volumes for hospitals, imaging centers, clinics and large general private practices.
  • Configures easily to the image preferences of each user.
  • Accommodates general radiographic exams as well as 35 x 84 cm long-length imaging, and 15 x 30 cm dental imaging.

Flexibility and Compatibility

  • Offers three Workflow and Image Viewing (WAIV) console configurations.
  • Provides mammography imaging option along with DICOM and IHE functionality and connectivity.
  • Improves compatibility across multiple “up” and “downstream” networked devices.
