Toshiba said that the Kalare X-ray system provides advanced digital productivity and efficiency while increasing patient comfort with its extended table weight limit, tableside controls and radiation dose reduction technology.

The new eight pound, 14" x 17" lightweight DR panel detector for the Kalare DR is designed to enhance clinician productivity for work outside of the bucky and can be easily positioned, accommodating numerous types of exams.

The new rotating bucky tray has been developed for the system, allowing technologists to easily rotate the detector from portrait to landscape without having to take the detector out of the bucky tray and enables quicker and more efficient exams.

Toshiba Marketing and Strategic Development vice president Doug Ryan said that the versatile Kalare DR with its all-digital imaging capability is optimized for the demanding clinical environments.

"The addition of the new lightweight detector panel and rotating bucky tray is improving the operational efficiency of the system for quicker and more accurate exams," Ryan said.
