US-based Konica Minolta Medical Imaging will unveil a new digital radiology solution, AeroDR LT, at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) to be held from 29 November to 04 December.
The AeroDR LT offers radiologists with advanced capabilities of AeroDR XE in a lower weight version to deliver primary imaging at the point-of-care.
The new digital radiology solution has been developed to increase efficiencies by reducing the effects of wear and tear, which come with alternative wireless flat panels.
The lightweight, hardened, IPX6-rated, liquid resistant enclosure helps radiologists to optimise patient outcomes, productivity and return on investment both in-room and outside of the radiology department, such as at the patient's bedside or in ER / trauma or intensive care / critical care units.
The 2.5kg AeroDR LT, which is capable of holding patients up to 300kg on a bed, is compatible with AeroSync automatic exposure detection and roaming, and can be used with most fixed and portable x-ray devices.
Radiologists can diagnose a patient with AeroDR LT to preview images within one second and deliver fully processed images within six seconds.
Konica Minolta Medical Imaging digital radiography senior product manager Guillermo Sander said: "Konica Minolta's next generation of digital radiography flat panel solutions, the AeroDR LT, is an ideal solution for radiologists, particularly those practicing in smaller facilities, who are considering upgrades to the medical equipment.
"With this one investment, radiologists can digitally transform their imaging capabilities and data transfer needs, while making value-based decisions."
Customers can use the AeroDR LT to help streamline workflow and avoid unplanned downtime.
The lithium ion capacitor in AeroDR LT lets users receive up to 4.1 hours of imaging use or 150 images with only a 13-minute charge time.
