Konica Minolta will feature its new digital radiology solution, the AeroDR LT, at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) to be held November 29 to December 4 in Chicago. According to the company, the AeroDR LT provides the capabilities of the AeroDR XE in a lower weight version to deliver primary imaging at the point of care.

The AeroDR LT was reportedly designed to maximize efficiencies by minimizing the effects of wear and tear that come with alternative wireless flat panels. The lightweight, IPX6-rated, liquid-resistant enclosure is intended to optimize patient outcomes and improve productivity at the patient’s bedside or in ER/trauma or critical care units. The AeroDR LT weighs 5.5 pounds and has the ability to hold patients up to 661 pounds.

The system has advanced digital features, such as compatibility with AeroSync automatic exposure detection and roaming capabilities, and usability with most fixed and portable x-ray devices. Konica Minolta reports that the AeroDR LT enables preview of images within one second of use and delivers fully processed images in as little as 6 seconds. The lithium ion capacitor in the system lets users receive up to 4.1 hours of imaging use or 150 images with only a 13-minute charge time. The built-in panel drop sensors and continuous panel handling data monitoring can help reduce repair costs and avoid catastrophic failures.

The company reports that the AeroDR LT is suitable for smaller facilities, and the system is said to help streamline workflow and avoid unplanned downtime.
