San Diego Chargers buy Carestream equipment for season

Rochester Business Journal
August 6, 2014


The San Diego Chargers football team purchased equipment from Carestream Health Inc. for use at Qualcomm Stadium in time for the 2014 NFL season.

Diagnostic imaging workstations are being installed in both home and visiting team locker rooms to allow for medical image viewing by physicians and trainers from both the Chargers and visiting teams, the company said.

The installation spotlights Carestream Health’s focus on providing its digital X-ray technology for use in sports medicine. Several NFL teams and other professional sports organizations also have adopted Carestream’s medical imaging systems for use in diagnosing player injuries.

The DRX-Ascend is used for X-ray exams at hospital radiology departments, imaging centers, clinics and specialists’ offices. This system is designed to simplify weight-bearing, cross-table and tabletop imaging studies with a floor-mounted tube stand and a wide, elevating float-top table with a weight capacity of 650 pounds. Users can customize the stand, tables and accessories to match budget and workflow needs.

“Our digital imaging systems are being adopted by sports organizations because they offer not only excellent image quality but also immediate image access,” said Diana Nole, president of Digital Medical Solutions at Carestream, in a statement. “Having the ability to accurately assess an athlete’s condition can help prevent further injury.”
