To address the needs of these fast-paced, extreme environments, Konica Minolta offers the simple yet powerful AeroDR XE, the lightest DR panel available today. Designed to provide unparalleled reliability and high-capacity imaging in extreme "on the go" environments the robust and highly durable AeroDR XE is also ideal for teaching hospitals, portable use and at the bedside.

Built to endure the rigors of extreme imaging environments outside the radiology department, the AeroDR XE combines the industry's most robust wireless DR panel with a simple yet powerful software interface.  As a result, users benefit from the best weight-to-load ratio – up to 661 lbs – and the highest bend and liquid resistance on the market. Weighing only 5.7 lbs, the AeroDR XE is the lightest panel on the market and easiest to handle.

"The AeroDR XE's rugged design and reliability provide peace of mind, keeping healthcare providers productive in the most challenging environments," says Guillermo Sander, Digital Radiography Senior Product Manager, Konica Minolta Medical Imaging. "Plus, exceptionally quick access to images help boost clinical confidence, which is particularly important in critical care situations."

Industry-leading DQE enables high-resolution images with dose efficiency that provides the information clinicians need in fast-paced environments.  Additionally, the improved lithium ion capacitor now lasts a full shift or 300 images.  Grip strips help technologists handle the panel while new panel drop sensors and monitoring provide ongoing data on panel handling to help avoid catastrophic failures, reduce repair costs and provide worry-free operation.

"The new AeroDR XE is the smart, financially responsible choice for facilities with extreme, portable imaging environments. It's simple, reliable and robust—allowing for fast, hard-working imaging when and where it's needed," concludes Sander.
