Not all X-ray exams can be performed in the X-ray room itself. Sometimes, care needs to come to the patient. The AeroDR X30 Mobile X-ray System enables you to perform digital diagnoses wherever the patient is in the hospital or medical facility. Bedside exams may be needed in case patients can’t be moved or diagnosed in regular X-ray rooms. In those cases Mobile Digital X-ray is the right technology to use. AeroDR X30 is specifically designed to carry out bedside exams as easy and straightforward as possible.
Because AeroDR detectors are the lightest in their class, positioning the detector for bedside exams is truly easy. In case of emergency room usage, the fact that the detectors are waterproof prevents any liquids such as blood or urine entering the detector. Also, it makes the detectors easier to clean after use.
Not only do AeroDR detectors provide wireless communication for effortless usage at the patient’s bedside, also the communication towards the hospital network (RIS/PACS) is completely wireless. Images can be made available for further diagnosis immediately after the acquisition.
The AeroDR X30 is a fully integrated Mobile Digital X-ray system that combines excellent mechanical and digital components to help you carry out exams more efficiently. For example, the CS-7 Image Acquisition Software, displayed on a 17” Touch Screen, not only provides excellent images, CS-7 also controls the generator by sending predefined exposure parameters for each examination. After the exposure the CS-7 receives the used X-ray settings together with the DAP value and links them to the image data.
The fully motorized AeroDR X30 is very easy to manoeuvre.
The two independent motors together with the large wheels make the AeroDR X30 very suitable for use in constricted spaces. The system can be controlled with just one hand. A light pressure on the drive handle sets the system in motion (up to 5 km/h), even on slopes. Sensors at the front bumpers will automatically stop the system when a slight pressure is detected. Additional controls at the tube handles allow easy positioning at the bedside. The optional Infrared Remote Control can be used for exposures and to control the collimator light.
The AeroDR detector can easily be stored and at the same time automatically charged in the bin, even during driving. The unique Lithium-Ion-Capacitor technology of the AeroDR detectors allows charging whenever and wherever without losing any performance capacity.
AeroDR X30 is a very compact system with a smart, space saving design. Two detectors can be carried along in the bin.
A wide generator selection of 20, 32, 40 or 50kW output.
AeroDR X30 can be combined with Konica Minolta’s robust, carbon fiber Flat Panel Detectors available in various sizes: 10 x 12”, 14 x 17” or 17 x 17”.

- AeroDR comes with some smart economic advantages. Because the detector doesn’t use Li-Ion batteries, there is no need to buy new batteries regularly.
- Sensors at the front bumpers will automatically stop the system when a slight pressure is detected.
- The AeroDR detectors can be shared with other AeroDR X-ray rooms.
- They are compatible and exchangeable with each other.
- Navigating the AeroDR X30 in busy areas such as ICU’s, NICU’s, and emergency rooms is safe and simple.
- By lowering the telescopic column you will have a good view on the driving path in front of you.
- he height is only 1.34m.
- Additional controls on the tube handles allow easy positioning at the bedside.
Speed - A cycle time of 4 seconds allows you to do more exams per day
Charging time - Capacitor technology enables charging the panel from 0 to 100% in just 30 minutes. The 2S can even be fully charged in 13 minutes!
Lightweight - The AeroDR 2S is Konica Minolta’s lightest 14x17” flat panel detector and therefore very easy to handle in your daily clinical routine
Robust - 300 kg surface load makes it suitable for all patient types and sizes
Waterproof - Exposure to water or body fluids is no longer a problem with AeroDR 2S and Premium’s IPX6 waterproof rating
AED - Automatic Exposure Detection by means of hybrid detection technology
The AeroDR X30 can be equipped with a wide selection of Konica Minolta portable detectors. From 10 x 12 inch which will fit in most incubators, to 14 x 17 inch for daily routines up to 17 x 17 inch for chest exams and with a variety of characteristics. Of course all Konica Minolta detectors are designed to be reliable and robust.
By thoroughly reviewing the housing and compo¬nents we have been able to reduce the weight of the AeroDR detectors. For example, the AeroDR Premium weighs only 2.6kg and is therefore very comparable with ordinary CR cassettes of the same size.
By using the same housing technology (carbon fiber reinforced plastic), all AeroDR detectors have a surface load of up to 300 Kg.
Konica Minolta has chosen a capacitor for its AeroDR instead of a battery to allow quick 0 to 100% charging time of just 30 minutes for AeroDR Premium and a mere 13 minutes (!) for AeroDR 2S.
This means the detector is ready when you are. Using this unique capacitor technology, there is no loss of charging capacity and there is no need to replace the power unit during the lifetime of the detector like you would with e.g. Li-ion batteries. Also, there is no risk of overheating while in use or being charged ensuring additional safety for you and your patients.
X-ray detectors may be accidentally exposed to water, blood or other fluids when used in demand¬ing environments such as emergency depart¬ments. To prevent possible damage to the interior of the detector, the AeroDR Premium and 2S have been equipped with an IPX6 certified waterproof housing. This also allows for easy and more effective disinfection and cleaning when needed.
CS-7 provides a simple and intuitive user interface for complete workflow control. From the collection of patient data to image optimization, flexibility and ease of use are guaranteed.
In less than 2 seconds after exposure, a preview image pops up on the console display! Our user-friendly graphi-cal interface is configurable, this enables you to set it up exactly how you like it.
Konica Minolta offers an optional* IntelligentGrid, a sophisticated Image Processing Technology to improve the X-ray image quality. It improves in particular the contrast, which is often affected by scattered radiation. The newly developed software is available as an option on Konica Minolta’s CS-7 console and will enable the users to have an easier workflow as there is no need to carry around different grids anymore. The IntelligentGrid offers three types of parameters, comparable to regular grid ratios 3:1, 6:1 and 8:1, so the user doesn’t have to switch grids between different exams all the time.
