AeroDR® Auto Stitching

The AeroDR® flat panel detector can be shared for cassette wireless digital radiography and Konica Minolta’s unique auto-stitching system.

Setting the Entire Exposure Range

A moving slit scans the light exposure field and detects the upper and lower edge of the field. Then the system automatically determines the number of exposures and captures each position in just 5 seconds, which is much shorter than alternative Digital Radiography stitching systems. This unique slit can dramatically reduce the time it takes to complete stitching exams and significantly improve the technologist’s workflow.


Stitching process of AeroDR® Auto-Stitching System

During an auto-stitching process, the alignment of the panel and the X-ray beam via the specialized AeroDR slit mechanism is automatically performed for each study. The X-ray tube remains stationary throughout the entire study and images are automatically transferred to the CS-7 console as they are acquired. After exposure is complete, an auto-stitched image appears on the display of the CS-7 console within 18 seconds.
