KONICA MINOLTA INTRODUCES NEW REVOLUTIONARY CR SOLUTION – THE IMAGEPILOT CR

KONICA MINOLTA INTRODUCES NEW REVOLUTIONARY CR SOLUTION – THE IMAGEPILOT CR

Chicago, IL, November 25, 2007 – Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas USA introduced today the ImagePilot CR System, a new concept in digital radiography that provides an integrated digital imaging acquisition, review and storage solution specifically for physician clinics. Using Konica Minolta’s patented AutoPilot image processing technology, the ImagePilot CR system simplifies image acquisition to one push of a button.

“AutoPilot Image Processing is based on a simple but revolutionary discovery that bone has the most stable x-ray response. Therefore, by establishing the density value of the anatomy around a fixed bone density, the entire image can be processed with one universal algorithm,” explained Eunice K. Lin, Marketing and Product Planning Manager at Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas. “This patented technology eliminates the need for the user to select and define algorithms for each body part and orientation, and results in a very simple to learn and operate CR system for the physician’s office staff. Yet at the same time, it delivers high quality diagnostic image quality suitable for radiologist’s reading.” Literally, any physician clinic performing more than eight diagnostic procedures a day may now convert cost effectively, from film and chemical systems to high quality digital.

ImagePilot CR system consists of an Imaging Station and a single bay Nano CR Reader. The Imaging Station can support additional client stations for viewing images in different parts of a physicians’ office. It can also send DICOM image for radiologists’ diagnostic interpretation. The Nano CR reader is a high performance, single bay CR reader. It has user serviceable features such as cassette release handle and optical unit sweeper, designed to enhance the reader’s reliability and extend its lifetime.
