KONICA MINOLTA INTRODUCES SIMPLE CHECK QC – SIMPLIFYING CR QUALITY CONTROL

KONICA MINOLTA INTRODUCES SIMPLE CHECK QC – SIMPLIFYING CR QUALITY CONTROL

CHICAGO, IL, NOVEMBER 25, 2007 – Today at the annual meeting of the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA), held in Chicago, November 25-29, Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas USA launched the Simple Check QC program for its Xpress, IQue and Nano CR systems. Simple Check QC includes a lightweight phantom and automated software, and is designed to detect changes in readers and plates to ensure consistent system performance and optimal image quality.

“Quality control is an important function in a radiology department or any imaging facility ensuring the diagnostic quality of images,” said Eunice K. Lin, Marketing and Product Planning Manager at Konica Minolta. “Simple Check QC’s ease of use makes it possible for the technologist to perform QC tests regularly and consistently with minimum training. This in turn enables radiologists to have a higher level of diagnostic confidence.”

Simple Check QC’s automated software requires minimum user intervention requiring only two exposures to complete a QC test. Unique software features include Color-coded PASS/FAIL results which are automatically calculated and displayed, graphical displays of historical performance trends that help ensure the CR system is performing to its maximum capabilities, trouble-shooting procedures that provide technologists the tools to adjust parameters or perform calibration, and multi-format test result data that can be exported for appropriate documentation and conformance to compliance programs.
