Konica Minolta_ImagePilot AeroThe ImagePilot Aero, the Konica Minolta DR system introduced in summer 2013 and featuring the AeroDR wireless flat panel detector, is now available throughout Latin America, excluding Brazil.

The detector panel can withstand up to 660 pounds to accommodate very large patients, while the 14-inch-by-17-inch panel detector weighs only 5.7 pounds for simple maneuvering. The AeroSync feature enables automatic X-ray detection for integration with most X-ray systems, and the AutoPilot automatic image processing feature improves image quality. According to the company, several market research firms have predicted that Latin America’s X-ray market will expand at a compound annual growth rate of 5% annually through 2018.

“ImagePilot Aero provides the exam flexibility and imaging performance required by today’s busy clinics and practices,” said Lisette Carrara, marketing manager for Latin America at Konica Minolta Medical Imaging. “It’s the only DR solution that bundles advanced imaging, scalable workflow, and the lightest, most durable wireless flat panel while protecting investment in a clinic’s existing imaging equipment.”
