Purchases of the wireless Konica Minolta AeroDR panel fueled company growth to double-digit sales figures, exceeding expectations. The AeroDR family of digital radiography solutions includes the AeroDR XE, a wireless flat panel detector engineered for extreme environments.

“At Brigham and Women’s Hospital, we perform a lot of portable and Emergency exams on a daily basis,” said Charles David Healy, manager of diagnostic radiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, in Boston. “AeroDR XE provides a simple, reliable and robust solution to our needs.”

According to David Widmann, Konica Minolta’s president and chief operating officer, the company strives to respond to the changing healthcare marketplace, where customers demand real value in their solutions.

“Record sales growth of the AeroDR and SONIMAGE ultrasound family of Primary Imaging Solutions clearly meets the needs of today’s healthcare environment,” Widmann continued. “Primary imaging, the first look in imaging diagnostics, encompasses 70 percent of diagnostic imaging procedures. Konica Minolta focuses solely on primary imaging.”

The company’s primary imaging solutions are designed to help customers achieve improved economic value, added clinical confidence, and attain worry free operation. The solutions include digital radiography, ultrasound, and information technology services.

“The healthcare market now places added emphasis on point-of-care tools that help clinicians make more informed patient care decisions,” Widmann said. “These early decisions can help reduce healthcare costs by providing the necessary information that could rule in or rule out disease or injury, delivering the right solutions at the right time.”
