How will the Vita CR help my Facility?
Changing demands call for a flexible and versatile CR solution. The costeffective Vita CR delivers consistent, high quality, diagnostic images
from a wide range of clinical applications.
The Vita CR solution can:
• Improve productivity with a quick time to first image (50
sec.) and fast processing times (25, 45 and 65+pph).
• Process low exposure exams even faster with the
Smart Erase functionality.
• Increase patient throughput with a streamlined workflow
that is as easy three simple steps!
• Ensure reliability with durable and limited moving parts.
• Manage imaging costs with a low cost of ownership
including an average of 2 years of service per phosphor
screen with typical use.
• Allows you to think beyond the exam room! This
lightweight CR system’s small footprint makes it very
mobile. And because it meets strict military standards for
operating temperature and humidity, the Vita CR goes
beyond traditional clinical settings.

entering the scanner. The materials used
are rugged and durable, and meets strict
military standards for operation, storage
and transportation.
One main controller board makes
troubleshooting a snap.
Gentle screen handling minimizes wear
and LED-based erase is highly efficient
with exceptionally long life.

Why Choose the Vita CR? – Quality Images!
Images are processed using Image Processing EVP Plus Algorithms -the same
technology used across all Carestream CR and DR systems! Optimized into six preconfigured positions - you to get the desired image look with minimal effort.
This system default provides a low noise, smooth image
and is suitable for all body parts.
High Contrast
This highest contrast look is appropriate for all body
Medium Contrast
Has higher contrast than a standard look but is still suitable
for all body parts.
Wide Latitude
This look is suitable for images needing wider latitude
such as abdomen, spine and chest.
The image contrast, latitude and sharpness remain fixed
(like film), but brightness is adjusted to correct for under
and over exposed images.
This high contrast look provides narrow latitude for
extremity imaging.
Consistent results = Fewer retakes = Greater efficiency

Why Choose the Vita CR? – Quality Images!
Powerful technology drives quality images. Here are some of
the advanced features of the Vita CR that will help your facility
generate outstanding digital images
• 16 bit A/D linear data captured at the Vita CR (compared to some
CRs that capture at only 10 or 12 bit) - provides the user with the
most digital data to process and view.
• High signal to noise ratio producing great flat field uniformity and
low noise.
• Wide Exposure Range (0.01 – 40mR) allowing you to capture a
wider range of exposures without saturation.
• Low phosphor screen noise and high resolution capabilities
result in outstanding digital images.

Why Choose the Vita CR? – Easy to Service!
• There are only four screws to remove the Vita CR cover, making it easier
to access the components inside. Easy access helps technicians
reduce repair time.
