Carestream Health said Tuesday it has sold more than 1,500 of its DRX family of wireless detectors worldwide.

The DRX-1 system, released in 2009, fits into a wall stand or Bucky and lets radiologists convert X-ray systems from computed radiography or film to digital radiography, the Rochester, N.Y.-based company said.

Carestream said it was the first wireless DR detector the size of a standard cassette cleared by the Food and Drug Administration.
