Thousands of imaging and radiology professionals from around the world flocked to Chicago’s McCormick Place to see exhibits from hundreds of vendors. Here are just a few highlights:

General radiography
Upgrading existing technology was a primary focus for general radiography at this year’s RSNA. A common theme among digital mobile systems was extended battery life for both the detector and the mobile unit. Systems such as Siemens Mobilett Mira Max feature in-cradle detector charging, while Shimadzu’s new MobileDaRt Evolution MX7 offers the Smart SeCURE power management system. Other common themes among mobile systems were larger displays, memory upgrades and scatter correction. The new Samsung GM85 mobile on display featured S-Vue advanced imaging engine and SimGrid, which produces high-quality images without the need for a grid.

Konica Minolta’s redesigned digital detector, the AeroDR HD, offered 100-micron pixel size for improved resolution. Konica Minolta also introduced AeroRemote Active Monitoring service for its AeroDR systems. Canon featured the new DR Tablet Solution from Virtual Imaging that includes a tablet and CXDI wireless detector. Carestream showcased its digital detector offerings including the DRX Plus and new DRX Core detectors.

With sustained growth of outpatient and freestanding imaging centers, value-based systems continue to be an essential staple among most radiology vendors’ portfolios. Vendors are producing better quality, value-based systems that include features such as higher table weights and improved imaging capabilities with lower-cost detectors. Siemens introduced the mid-level Multix Fusion Max, an economical solution with high-quality imaging; the Max detector can be shared with the entire Siemens Max family lineup. U-arms appear to making a resurgence, with more interest in these smaller, economical systems that fit into virtually any room. Konica Minolta introduced a Digital U-arm featuring its Ultra Software and dual console providing for faster exam times.

Several vendors featured new multipurpose x-ray systems. Carestream showcased its DRX-Excel Plus, which offers a more compact design intended for large and mid-size facilities. Agfa introduced the DR 800 multipurpose x-ray system, which features its Dynamic MUSICA imaging processing software (pending FDA submission), while Philips’ new offering is the remote CombiDiagnost R90, which is still pending FDA approval.
