Konica Minolta adds digital x-ray to U-arm system

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

June 2, 2020 -- Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas has added digital radiography technology to its KDR Advanced U-Arm system following clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The KDR U-Arm with Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) captures a series of digital images to create a cine loop, which orthopedic clinicians can use to view anatomical structures while patients move. The loop is designed to give orthopedists insight into how patients' bones and soft tissues move and change over time, including viewing motion for joints, tendons, and ligaments in the knee, wrist, spine, and shoulder.

The KDR Advanced U-Arm with DDR can be used for dynamic or static imaging. The digital images are taken at high speed and low dose, according to the company. They can also be enhanced, quantified, reprocessed, and played at multiple speeds or viewed one frame at a time.
