FDA Clears Konica Minolta's Regius Sigma CR Reader

June 14, 2011 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave 510(k) clearance to Konica Minolta Medical Imaging’s Regius Sigma tabletop computed radiography (CR) reader. The reader is offered as an affordable solution for lower volume clinics and practices, including orthopedic, chiropractic and veterinary.

The new Regius Sigma tabletop CR reader has a small footprint (20-in W x 24-in D x 14-in H), weighing less than 70 pounds with flexible plate technology that enhances its compact design and cost effectiveness. As with all Konica Minolta CR readers, it is designed for ease of use and reliability, with very few replacement parts.

With the FDA clearance, Konica Minolta now offers two versions of the ImagePilot to meet the varying needs of the outpatient and alternate care markets. In addition to the Regius Sigma, ImagePilot is available with the Regius 110 reader geared for higher volume practices and clinics.

Users can also sync ImagePilot Sigma with Informity — a cloud-based archive, disaster recovery, image sharing and information portal solution — to collaborate with referring physicians and other specialists and receive remote technical support.
