Konica Minolta’s new AeroDR NS detector makes upgrading to DR easier than ever

| 4 November 2019

With the launch of Konica Minolta’s new flat panel detector, the “AeroDR NS”, upgrading from CR to DR has become easier than ever. The 14x17’’ portable detector supports the user with a complete workflow solution and is compatible with any existing static RAD room and mobile RAD system.

ImagePilotTM software enables the user to register patients, acquire and view images, perform measurements and reports and archive them using a miniPACS functionality: a true All-in-one solution. For various applications, there are specific user tools available: Optional tools include dedicated Orthopedic and Veterinary tools and a Bone-Suppression feature: This function processes an image in which for example the clavicles and the ribs are ‘attenuated’. This could make it easier for users to diagnose thorax images.

The AeroDR NS is suitable for medical imaging professionals who are considering to upgrade from analogue or CR to DR but do not have the budget to purchase a complete new digital RAD room.

According to Konica Minolta, the biggest advantage of using AeroDR NS instead of a CR workflow is that the acquisition cycle time will be much shorter: from several minutes to a few seconds.

Some other features of the AeroDR NS detector:

  • With a pixel size of 150µm, a CsI scintillator and 72% MTF, the AeroDR NS delivers a high image quality for making diagnoses with high confidence
  • The AeroDR NS has ‘Automatic Exposure Detection’ so there is no need for cable connections to the X-ray generator
  • An internal Access Point can send the images directly to the screen within seconds
  • AeroStorage: for working offline in case needed, and the possibility to store up to 200 images

Due to the smart portable and compatible concept, the AeroDR NS can especially address the Medical Imaging professionals who are considering to upgrade from analogue or CR to DR, but don’t have the budget available to purchase a complete new Digital RAD room.
