Konica Minolta has developed the AeroDR HD: our most sophisticated detector with the highest resolution and sensitivity enabling the highest image quality and lower radiation doses. From now on every image will be clearer than ever, allowing for even better analyses.
- Display micro structures
- Better visibility of bone trabecular
- Edge of the bone is clearer
- No “pixel shape” when zooming in
- Higher DQE and Lower Radiation doses
- Lightweight and Robust structure
- Fast and Reliable Workfl ow
- Updated AeroSync for longer automatic exposure detection
Konica Minolta introduces the latest technological advances with the AeroDR HD “High Sensitivity TFT (Thin Film Transistor) detector”. The thicker CsI scintillator, a high sensitivity photo diode on the TFT panel and new ROIC (Read out IC), which can reduce the electrical noise level by 50% or more, enables optimized detection values. Now we can provide patients and AeroDR users with higher Detector Quantum Efficiency (DQE) and lower radiation doses.
The scintillator material is evenly distributed from the bottom to the top of the detector and it is more than 20% thicker than the AeroDR Premium panel. This helps providing the high DQE.
For Radiography professionals who demand the highest level of confi dence, the AeroDR HD has an astonishing pixel size of only 100μm! With 3488 x 4256 pixel count – up to 4 times more than standard resolution detectors, the AeroDR HD allows you to enlarge microstructures to conduct precise analyses required for extremities, pediatrics and other specialties where image details and dose efficiency are vital to diagnosis.
Weighing just 2.6 kg (including powercell), the panel is light in weight, and a new grip design makes it even easier and safer to handle in your daily routine.
The world’s highest load resistance of 400kg and a 130kg bending resistance; to withstand demanding conditions during bedside exams.
The AeroDR HD is waterproof (IPX6) even after the detector was dropped from a height of 1.0 m. This makes the detector very suitable for more extreme environments like trauma departments, ICU and disaster relief operations where it is more likely to be exposed to liquids and body fluids.
The AeroDR HD can handle large image data and provide short cycle times even though the image is taken by 100 micron pixels.
The AeroDR HD is powered by a Lithium-ion capacitor for high performance and safety. It charges from 0 to 100% within 30 minutes.
Konica Minolta’s new image processing enhances images in the low density part.
If the X-ray generator has low power or patient body parts are thick, the updated AeroSync technology of the AeroDR HD supports a wider range of techniques than before. This includes:
- Lumbar spine (for thicker body parts)
- MSK (for Orthopedic)
- Veterinary, horses (for large body parts)
Exposures with AeroSync on AeroDR HD can go up to 4 seconds.
