Shimadzu, Konica Minolta Agreement Expands AeroDR Portable Wireless to MobileArt X-Ray Systems

April 15, 2014 — Shimadzu Medical Systems USA announced an agreement with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging to expand the availability of the AeroDR portable wireless solution to MobileArt portable X-ray systems. The new wireless mobile imaging solution will be available in two configurations — one with a column-mounted interface (MobileArt AeroDR-c), and the other with an integrated console interface (MobileArt AeroDR-i).

“Konica Minolta is pleased to expand our relationship with Shimadzu and bring advanced digital imaging technology to more clinical users,” says Diane Hunt, vice president, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging. “A key tenant of our Primary Imaging Solutions business is to provide clinicians with the tools they need to deliver cost-effective, high-quality imaging services that enhance the delivery of care.”

“Shimadzu has built a reputation for providing high-performance imaging solutions and this agreement with Konica Minolta is part of that commitment,” says Frank Serrao, North America marketing manager, Shimadzu Medical Systems USA. “We listened to our customers, who told us they wanted options for integrating and mounting the interface console. Konica Minolta takes a similar approach to delivering solutions that meet customers’ needs, so it was logical for us to work together to that end.”

The MobileArt AeroDR systems offer multiple flat panel detector (FPD) choices for a variety of uses and purposes, including HQ and standard resolution 14-inch x 17-inch panel sizes, as well as a smaller 10 x 12 HQ FPD for pediatric NICU, or dual FPD solutions.

The Aero DR portable retrofit systems have been designed to quickly, easily and inexpensively turn current Shimadzu MobileArt portable X-ray units into a digital wireless solution. This retrofit solution has a small footprint (384 mm x 384 mm x 72 mm) and is small enough to be installed and stored inside the cassette storage bin. It is completely self-contained and includes two long-life batteries for self-powering operation.
