Company’s Computed Radiography Organization in Yokneam, Israel, Recognized With Prestigious Quality Award Presented by Israeli Minister of Industry & Trade
Carestream Health has received the National Quality and Excellence Award from the Israeli government for its outstanding achievements and continuous improvement in the area of computed radiography (CR).
This award—honoring the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin—is the most prestigious award of its kind in Israel, and recognizes Israeli organizations for excellence and a commitment to quality. The competitive application process and evaluation is sponsored by the Prime Minister’s Office and managed by the Ministry of Industry & Trade, the National Institute of Standards and the Israeli Society for Quality.
The Israeli National Quality and Excellence Award is based on U.S. Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award established by the U.S. Congress and is awarded annually by the President of the Unites States. Carestream applied for the Israeli award at the beginning of 2011 and went through a long evaluation process by an independent board of examiners in seven critical areas:
The National Quality and Excellence Award recognizes the achievements of Carestream’s Israeli organization that is responsible for designing and developing the company’s line of tabletop CR systems that enable medical professionals to acquire patient X-ray images digitally. Israel has created an environment that has helped nurture many successful healthcare and technology companies, including Carestream’s Yokneam team which continues to produce outstanding technology and market-leading medical imaging innovations.
Carestream manufactures its CR systems in multiple locations worldwide and supplies these high-quality CR systems for use in clinics, imaging centers and specialty markets such as orthopedics, veterinary and dentistry. These proven CR units are some of the most versatile and flexible compact digital X-ray systems available.

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
