“X-ray exams are primary imaging exams and account for 70 percent of all imaging procedures today. They are done before you go for a CT or MR. Having more insight in that particular exam provides for better patient diagnosis, less time in the healthcare cycle and more precise diagnosis and treatment plans for the individual,” said Widmann. “That’s really our precision aim with this technology.”

He notes that plans are in place to apply the technology for other applications, systems and specialties, with a second application for orthopedics expected in the fall.

“That will bring us squarely in the middle of not only a hospital setting but also every orthopedic and pain clinic across the U.S. You can see joints moving and determine conflict between bone and tendons,” he said. “We think that right now DDR can be an application that can be applied to not only many different systems but also many different clinical applications.”

Konica Minolta and Shimadzu will introduce DDR on the RADSpeed Pro this week at the 45th Annual Meeting of the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA).
