Konica Minolta ImagePilot Sigma CR Now Includes TCO Options

ImagePilot Sigma TCO

August 5, 2014 — Konica Minolta Medical Imaging announced a new cost-effective digital imaging solution that combines the ImagePilot Sigma state-of-the-art computed radiography (CR) technology with Konica Minolta’s total cost of ownership (TCO) long-term support plan. By bringing together technology and service solutions, ImagePilot Sigma TCO simplifies the transition to digital imaging and controls ongoing costs for imaging facilities and private practices.

The new all-inclusive ImagePilot Sigma TCO solution extends customer satisfaction and economic value with long-term coverage of remote technical support, replacement parts, software upgrades, cassette repairs and data archiving. Informity, Konica Minolta’s cloud-based subscription service that automatically backs up patient and system data to a secure data center, can help satisfy HIPAA requirements by securing protected health data.

ImagePilot Sigma achieves consistent image quality with the AutoPilot image processing software, featuring single-click technology that eliminates the need to specify body part, exam or view. The all-in-one ImagePilot Sigma provides simple image acquisition and review capabilities, and integrates with most EMR (electronic medical record) software and PACS (picture archiving and communications system) to simplify workflow and improve efficiency.

“The introduction of TCO plans for the ImagePilot Sigma provide economic value and peace of mind for practitioners who want to convert to digital radiography [DR] or upgrade their existing CR solution without worrying about service issues and technology upgrades,” said Steve Eisner, senior product manager at Konica Minolta. “This simple, cost-effective purchase will help clinicians stay focused on their patients, knowing their technology is backed by a leader in CR solutions.”
