July 8, 2022 -- Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas said its Dynamic Digital Radiology (DDR) technology will be made available on the company's mKDR Xpress mobile x-ray system, with the system highlighted at the AHRA 2022 meeting in Phoenix July 10-13.

As opposed to fluoroscopy, DDR produces a series of individual digital images acquired at high speed and low radiation dose in the form of cine loops of up to 40 seconds. The addition of DDR technology to mKDR Xpress will enable the visualization of patient anatomy in motion at a lower dose than fluoroscopy, according to Konica Minolta.

The company also said mKDR Xpress will be compatible with its AeroDR glassless high-definition detector. With AeroDR, a glassless substrate is used in place of a glass-based substrate; the resulting detector weighs 27% less than the previous generation of AeroDR and weighs 4.2 lbs, including a built-in power cell.
