The REGIUS 370 from Konica Minolta is an upright digital radiography (DR) system that uses the most advanced phosphor detector available. The detector uses Cesium Bromide (CeBR) to produce a high level of detective quantum efficiency (DQE), which is comparable to flat-panel DR systems. However, it is compatible with almost any X-ray generator or tube, which many flat-panel systems are not. With the scanning mechanism and image detector integrated into one upright stand, the upright DR is capable of scanning 210 images per hour.

Image of 21-year-old woman, who presented with a chronic nasal bone fracture and soft tissue swelling of the left lateral face. Review of electronic medical records revealed presentation to an outside hospital 9 months ago with oblique fracture of the right ring finger proximal phalanx, blowout fracture of the medial wall of the left orbit and similar soft tissue swelling of the left face. Traumatic findings separated in time suggest recurrent violence. Image courtesy of Elizabeth George, M.D.
