The new plate is ideal for sites seeking a smaller and lighter wireless flat panel for use in general x-ray and specialty applications, according to Konica Minolta.
The detector fits most bassinets in the newborn intensive care unit and can be used with major portable x-ray systems from various manufacturers, the company added. In addition to most standard digital imaging requirements, the plate can be used for cross-table, extremity, and sunrise patella views with a high tolerance to patient weight loading.
The new plate is similar to the AeroDR 14 x 17-inch and 17 x 17-inch plates in that images appear on the console display in less than two seconds and it has the same lithium ion capacitor.
Shipments have already started, Konica Minolta said.
