Konica Minolta has received FDA clearance to market its Aero DR wireless flat panel radiography detector. The 17 x 17 inch device weighs about 8 pounds (3.6 Kg). The device is focused around a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator that promises high detector quantum efficiency (DQE).
These detectors also take advantage of Konica Minolta’s very low power circuitry design which decrease read out noise and further raise quantum efficiency. All Aero DR systems deliver high image quality, reliability and easy workflow integration into general radiography environments.
Aero DR systems meet International Standards for both the 14 x 17 and 17 x 17 inch cassette sizes and therefore fit existing wall stands and bucky trays without modifications to help a facility maximize its investment in existing equipment and deliver a universal fit solution. Aero DR systems are offered in many configurations to meet both retrofit and new room purchase scenarios. A new Aero DR portable X-ray upgrade kit solution is also available to efficiently turn portable X-ray systems into digital, wireless solutions.
