U.S. FDA Clears Aero DR Wireless 17″ x 17″ Flat Panel Detector

Konica Minolta has received FDA clearance to market its Aero DR wireless flat panel radiography detector.  The 17 x 17 inch device weighs about 8 pounds (3.6 Kg).  The device is focused around a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator that promises high detector quantum efficiency (DQE).aero

These detectors also take advantage of Konica Minolta’s very low power circuitry design which decrease read out noise and further raise quantum efficiency. All Aero DR systems deliver high image quality, reliability and easy workflow integration into general radiography environments.

Aero DR systems meet International Standards for both the 14 x 17 and 17 x 17 inch cassette sizes and therefore fit existing wall stands and bucky trays without modifications to help a facility maximize its investment in existing equipment and deliver a universal fit solution. Aero DR systems are offered in many configurations to meet both retrofit and new room purchase scenarios. A new Aero DR portable X-ray upgrade kit solution is also available to efficiently turn portable X-ray systems into digital, wireless solutions.

Wayne, NJ, February 14, 2012 – Konica Minolta announced today that the Aero DR Wireless 17 x 17 inch Flat Panel Detector (FPD) has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance. It is the world’s first, wireless 17 x 17 inch FPD weighing only 7.92 lbs.

The increased imaging area of the 17 x 17 inch Aero DR FPD improves clinical workflow and patient care by offering users more versatility in positioning patients and allowing for more clinical data on every exposure, which may decrease the number of exposures needed for studies that require imaging a larger region of interest. Aero DR detectors incorporate Konica Minolta’s own Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator that boasts ultra-high detector quantum efficiency (DQE). These detectors also take advantage of Konica Minolta’s very low power circuitry design which decrease read out noise and further raise quantum efficiency. All Aero DR systems deliver high image quality, reliability and easy workflow integration into general radiography environments.

“With the Aero DR, our customers are able to choose between wired and wireless operation. This allows greater flexibility to meet their imaging workflow needs.” says Darren Werner, Digital Products Marketing Manager. “This is the result of Konica Minolta’s dedication to delivering product advancements that contribute to improved patient care.”
