GE Healthcare and Konica Minolta Inc have signed a global distribution agreement of Konica Minolta’s AeroDR cassette-size digital x-ray imaging retrofit. Under the agreement, GE Healthcare will distribute AeroDR not just within the United States, but globally as well. The agreement will enable health care facilities that have x-ray analog devices to implement digital imaging upgrades using their current imaging equipment.

The AeroDR is a compact, lightweight, wireless-type cassette digital x-ray device and is already in use in a wide range of medical workplaces.
