Konica Minolta Debuts Realism DR Image Processing at RSNA 2017

Company will also introduce new AeroDR HD flat panel detectors for extremities and larger anatomical areas

Konica Minolta Debuts Realism DR Image Processing at RSNA 2017

November 9, 2017 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. announced it will introduce the Realism image processing solution and two new AeroDR (digital radiography) HD Wireless Flat Panel Detectors for specialty applications at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

The Realism advanced image processing system delivers a new level of clarity and detail for superior visualization within soft tissue and bony structures, according to Konica Minolta. By independently processing bone and soft tissue data, it enhances X-ray image sharpness and contrast to reveal subtle aspects of the image, even in the most difficult anatomies. Along with improvements in image quality, Realism can enhance workflow efficiency by enabling visualization of soft tissue and bone simultaneously, reducing the number of window-level adjustments needed.

Konica Minolta also continues to build on the success of high-definition imaging with AeroDR HD by introducing two additional size panels. The new 10 x 12-inch AeroDR HD detector is ideal for imaging fine structures such as extremities and for the special needs of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) environments, and the new 17 x 17-inch AeroDR HD is designed for imaging larger anatomical areas, like the chest and abdomen.

All AeroDR HD panels offer the option to switch between High Definition (HD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. HD provides images with a 100 micron pixel size for a high level of detail and HDR imaging aggregates the data from four pixels for a wider range of grays, providing a smooth image that allows clinicians to detect subtle differences in soft tissue.

AeroDR HD systems are available with the AeroRemote Remote Monitoring and Reporting Service, which delivers real-time information to maximize system utilization, minimize service interruptions and evaluate personnel performance. This service helps customers address critical or ongoing issues before they become problems.
