Konica Minolta, digital U-arm, RSNA 2016

October 12, 2016 — Konica Minolta will highlight its new digital U-arm, featuring a state-of-the-art design that facilitates exam efficiency and an optimal workflow, at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27-Dec. 3 in Chicago. Pre-programmed positions and a dual console allows for reduced operating steps and faster exam times. This floor-mounted system fits 8-foot ceilings for greater installation flexibility.

The new Konica Minolta U-Arm runs on the company’s advanced Ultra Software and features a 17x17 inch Cesium detector for optimum coverage and image quality. With Ultra Software on the console, technologists can accept and reject images, confirm and review patients, and even add patients to the worklist on-the-fly. Anatomy positioning is simplified with a smaller panel enclosure than other available stands for efficient use of space. The stand performs automatic stitching and the three-knob collimator provides additional control over the imaging area.

The stand also lowers to less than 1 foot for easier patient positioning, especially useful for imaging elderly or unsteady patients.
