The system has a slim design and collapsible column that facilitates movement through a hospital, as well as a mobile-specific user interface, remote control, and front-and-back collimator controls with laser alignment
The company's AeroDR Carbon flat-panel detector is designed for general x-ray use; the carbon material has been infused with antibacterial properties, the company said. The detector can be used on the mKDR Xpress system.
