Konica Minolta Introduces KDR Primary Digital Radiography System

April 20, 2018 — Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. introduced the KDR Primary digital radiography (DR) system at the American Association of Orthopedic Executives (AAOE) 2018 annual conference, April 14-17 in Orlando, Fla. Designed to meet the needs of office-based X-ray imaging — such as orthopedic groups, family practices and urgent care centers — KDR Primary delivers advanced digital X-ray capabilities and functionality in a compact footprint. According to Konica Minolta, it is the ideal solution for practices and clinics that want superior image quality and versatile imaging options yet have a limited amount of space.

Building on the KDR Advanced U-arm System, KDR Primary helps optimize workflow, expedite the diagnostic process and increase staff efficiency all while elevating the patient experience. Equipped with a 17 x 17-inch detector, KDR Primary captures high-resolution images in seconds, providing detailed bone and soft tissue visualization from a single exposure. Practices and clinics can enhance patient satisfaction by providing rapid diagnostic results without the need to schedule additional appointments or refer elsewhere.

The system has a wide range of motion to enable all required imaging views. The swivel arm rotates 135 degrees in both directions and moves 39 inches vertically, while the detector tilts 45 degrees in two directions to accommodate patients who are standing, sitting, lying on a table or confined to a wheelchair. The space-saving design provides staff with the freedom to maneuver the system for exam flexibility that can potentially help reduce retakes due to incorrect patient positioning or movement. It can be installed in a standard room with an 8 ft. ceiling. Options include a weight-bearing stand and pediatric imaging package.
