AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detectors

Konica Minolta designs and manufactures the AeroDR® line of flat panel detectors and image processing software for digital radiography that delivers solutions that provide clinical and economic value to meet your needs. The AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detectors are our lightest, strongest and most sensible solution to help you improve efficiency and reduce user fatigue without compromise.

  • Ergonomic Design
  • Reliable load-bearing performance
  • Meets MIL-STD-810G drop test
  • Compliant with IP56 waterproof/dustproof standard

The AeroDR® advantage.

The glass substrate was replaced by a thin film transistor (TFT)

AeroDR Glassless Flat Panel Detectors use a thin film instead of a glass substrate to achieve lighter weight. Removing the glass reduces the distance between the scintillator and the TFT to increase sensitivity. The electronics are optimized to reduce electrical noise. Additionally, the AeroDR Glassless Product Line is offered in a High-Definition (HD) option, which offers enhanced detail at 100μ. The High Dynamic Range option that provides a 200μ resolution for a wider range of tone variations to visualize tissue.

Why Consider Dynamic Digital Radiography?

Dynamic Digital radiography (DDR) is an exciting new X-ray technology that enables low-dose dynamic acquisition and visualization with a conventional X-ray device. This reimbursed technology allows for standard radiography and full 17" x 17" imaging at 15 fps. 

DDR is the only imaging study that provides a view of anatomy in motion, with a large field of view and low radiation dose.
