FlexDR Boasts High-Quality Images with Minimum X-ray Exposure

Konica Minolta Medical Imaging’s FlexDR is an upright, flat panel digital radiography system. The FDA-cleared FlexDR features an Amorphous Silicon (aSi) and Cesium Iodide (CsI) receptor that boasts ultrahigh detective quantum efficiency (DQE) for high-quality images even with minimum X-ray exposure.

The product will be available for sale in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2009.

The TechLink review console on the FlexDR provides new workflow enhancements. Technologists can immediately review and approve the image right at the patient’s side, reportedly creating a more efficient workflow that can also reduce both total exam time and patient call backs. The system is optimized for patient comfort and an ergonomically-correct technologist workspace that can help increase productivity, according to the company. FlexDR is a sophisticated upright digital radiology system that is suitable for a wide range of clinical applications. Each image is available for review approximately five seconds after exposure, making it an ideal solution for high throughput imaging environments from an enterprise hospital to a busy imaging center.
