He adds that the device is equally resistant and has the same specs as traditional detectors. When combined with the mKDR Xpress Mobile X-ray System, it helps create optimal image quality as a synchronized, smart imaging solution.
Konica Minolta previously showcased two of its AeroDR HD Wireless Flat Panel Detectors
in 2017 at RSNA. The wireless devices included a 10x12 that was designed to image fine structures of smaller anatomies, such as extremities; and a 17x17 that was suited for imaging large anatomical areas, such as the thorax, chest and abdomen.

They were designed to be used in conjunction with the company’s REALISM advanced image processing system, which allows physicians to process soft tissue and bone data separately, and provides more clarity on different areas of the image. It enhances sharpness and contrast to reveal subtle aspects for assessing even the most difficult anatomies.
At this year’s show, the company also introduced new functionalities for its Exa Platform that automate clinical and administrative tasks. The platform will feature a Clinical Decision Support Mechanism (CDSM), a tool that will help clinicians abide by standards of Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) when making treatment decisions. This function comes in advance of CMS’ mandate that providers use such a tool starting in January 2023. It also eliminates inefficiencies in determining patient insurance eligibility and copay responsibility, and is expected to help radiology departments and imaging centers increase revenue and profitability by improving reimbursement and capturing non-covered costs.
