Konica Minolta AeroDR Achieves Compliance with DoD, VA Security Standards

U.S. government hospitals and healthcare facilities can now employ wireless detector technology for secure transmission of patient information

Konica Minolta, AeroDR, DoD, VA, FIPS 140-2, security standard

July 20, 2015 - Konica Minolta Medical Imaging announced that the AeroDR wireless flat panel detector is now compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 required by the Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare facilities. The FIPS 140-2 standard is an information technology security accreditation program for wireless hardware and software solutions used in U.S. government departments and industries -  such as the VA hospitals - that collect, store, transfer and disseminate sensitive but unclassified information. The compliance covers the family of AeroDR flat panel detectors and the CS-7 control station.

AeroDR transmits patient imaging data wirelessly, which can help improve workflow and clinical productivity by enabling near real-time access to patient images. The absence of a cable facilitates patient positioning and makes it an ideal solution for portable X-ray applications.

The first fully functional FIPS 140-2 solution was implemented and tested at a VA facility in Dayton, Ohio.

There were several new developments in digital radiography (DR) technology at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. These trends included integration of artificial intelligence (AI) auto detection technologies, more durable glassless detector plates, and technologies to pull more diagnostic data out of X-ray imaging. Some vendors also have redesigned their DR systems to make them more user-friendly and ergonomic.
