Konica Minolta (Tokyo, Japan) launched new solutions in healthcare IT, X-ray and ultrasound imaging at European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2021 held in Vienna, Austria which is one of the world’s largest medical congresses and the second-largest radiological meeting.
Among the advances in healthcare IT unveiled by Konica Minolta at the European Congress of Radiology Virtual Exhibition from March 3-10, 2021 were the launch of AeroDR X90, a high-end auto positioning X-ray system, and Sonimage HS2, a premium portable ultrasound device, as well as Exa Enterprise Imaging offering full diagnostic toolsets and viewing capabilities.
Konica Minolta’s new X-ray system AeroDR X90 enables radiography professionals to examine more patients per day and shorten patient wait time by reducing the time to diagnosis, with the user-friendly AeroNAV software. The AeroDR X90 is a highly ergonomically designed system that will use auto-positioning, auto-tracking and auto-stitching to help drive an efficient workflow. AeroDR X90 auto stitching functionality reduces patient hold time and speeds up daily workflow. For the full auto stitching operation, up to four images can be stitched together for a long leg and full spine examination. When the patient is on a special stitching trolley, the detector automatically moves to the correct defined positions. The images are acquired just by pressing the X-ray button.
Another attraction for visitors to Konica Minolta’s booth was the new Sonimage HS2, a Point-of-Care ultrasound system that is designed to support a wide range of applications and patient types. Konica Minolta’s advanced technology features provide high resolution image quality and efficient workflow for daily clinical practice. Sonimage HS2 is the newest member of Konica Minolta’s Sonimage Ultrasound Product Family.
Additionally, Konica Minolta’s Exa Enterprise Imaging offers a diagnostic quality zero footprint universal viewer for DICOM and non-DICOM images, server-side rendering, for fast access to large files, such as 3D mammography, with no prefetching required and cybersecurity with no data transferred to or stored on workstations to minimize unwanted exposure to patient data. Exa offers full diagnostic toolsets and viewing capabilities from any computer including specific viewing toolsets for subspecialties like mammography, cardiology, and orthopedics.
