Diagnostic imaging firm Konica Minolta Healthcare has announced the availability of its Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) technology on the mKDR Xpress mobile X-ray system.

The mobile system is also compatible with the AeroDR Glassless High Definition Detector, the recent advancement in wireless flat panel X-ray detector technology.

According to the firm, DDR is the next step in X-ray technology, improving orthopaedic and pulmonary illness detection and treatment.

DDR enables medical professionals to see how anatomical elements like tissue and bone interact dynamically with physiologic changes throughout time.

It is a collection of distinct digital pictures that are collected quickly and with little radiation and can obtain both static and dynamic pictures in the same study.

At the bedside or in the ER, OR, CCU, or ICU, the mKDR Xpress offers outstanding imaging capabilities in a compact design.

The mKDR Xpress can be transported more readily because of its slender form and foldable column that makes it easier to use in small places.

Konica Minolta said that on-boarding charging for two detectors and front and back storage for detectors and accessories support technologists meet the mobile X-ray imaging requirements.

The tube-mounted graphical user interface and image preview function ensure clear images are visible quickly, improving efficiency when time matters.

The firm said that the AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detector is lightweight and has improved sensitivity and resolution suitable for the appropriate wireless panel for mobile X-rays.

Its design results in a detector that is 27% lighter than previous generation AeroDR Flat Panel Detectors, weighing just 4.2 lbs. with the built-in power cell and has the same robust imaging and dependability.

AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detectors have the same drop impact resistance, an antibacterial carbon enclosure, and eight hours of operation after a 30-minute charge as other types of AeroDR Flat Panel Detectors.

The AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detector provides the resolution and picture crispness professionals require to properly assess the patient’s anatomy, even the tiniest and most minute structures.
