Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA announced that it will collaborate with UMG / Del Medical, a leading provider of radiography products, to design a new DR system that will enhance the use of the Konica Minolta Aero DR flat panel technology when used in conjunction with a Del radiographic system. Once this project is completed, some Del Medical systems will allow seamless integration with the Konica Minolta Aero DR and provide cable-based communication for image transfer for both the X-ray table and upright Bucky systems. This configuration will also continuously charge the Aero DR panel, eliminating the need to remove the panel for charging.
“By bringing together the ultra-high detector quantum efficiency (DQE) with minimum X-ray dose exposure provided by the Aero DR with the flexible configuration choices of UMG / Del Medical’s radiographic systems, end users will have access to new capabilities for high-quality digital imaging,” says Henry Kobayashi, President and COO, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA. “Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA is pleased to work with UMG / Del Medical to implement the Aero DR flat panel technology into the company’s extensive DR product line and provide our joint partners unique solutions for their customers.”
“For over 80 years, Del Medical has brought innovative product design to the radiographic imaging market, and our collaboration with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA is another example of our commitment to provide high-quality imaging that addressed challenging clinical settings,” says Toufic Lorenzo, Del Medical President and CEO. “Konica Minolta’s commitment to excellence in product development and customer service align with our company vision to provide flexible and reliable imaging solutions.”
The Aero DR flat panel detector incorporates Konica Minolta’s Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator that boasts ultra-high detector quantum efficiency (DQE) for high-quality images even with minimum X-ray dose exposure. By combining the CsI panel and Konica Minolta’s image processing technology from its top-rated REGIUS systems, the Aero DR assures end users of consistent and reliable high quality imaging. Aero DR also takes advantage of Konica Minolta’s very low power IC design which decrease read out noise and further raise quantum efficiency.
