GE Healthcare, Konica Minolta Collaborate on a DR Retrofit Global Distribution Agreement

AeroDR Konica Minolta GE Healthcare Retrofit Global Distribution Agreement X-ray

July 3, 2013 — GE Healthcare and Konica Minolta Inc. have signed a global distribution agreement * of Konica Minolta’s AeroDR cassette-size digital X-ray imaging retrofit. Having built a collaborative relationship for nearly 10 years related to the sales of computed radiography (CR) in the United States, the two partners have now agreed to expand their strategic alliance, with GE Healthcare distributing AeroDR not just within the United States, but globally as well, using GE Healthcare sales channels.

The AeroDR, introduced as the world’s lightest, most compact wireless-type cassette digital X-ray device of its kind, is already in use in a wide range of medical workplaces, contributing the advantages of high image quality at low x-ray dose comparing to CR. The agreement will enable healthcare facilities that have x-ray analog devices to implement digital imaging upgrades using their current imaging equipment. In addition, a selection of three cassette sizes adds versatility: 10”x12”, 14”x17” and 17”x17”.

The agreement adds the AeroDR panel to the GE Healthcare lineup of digital X-ray devices, thus enabling both partners to accelerate their supply of solutions adapted to the needs of a diverse array of customers. Building on the solutions to meet a broad range of customer needs globally the alliance contributes to innovation in  healthcare.

(*) except in Japan.

Sales by GE Healthcare are underway using a global sales network and will progressively be spanning over 50 countries.
