AeroDR3 1417/1717HL Premium glass-free flat panel wireless detectors

The AeroDR HL is the highest model of the AeroDR family with a glassless TFT pad. Weighs only 1.9 kg including the battery, which is lighter than a CR cassette. Available in 100μm and 200μm models, depending on the exposure protocol.

Adoption of glass-free TFT substrate

The previous AeroDR series used a TFT substrate made of glass material, which posed a problem in terms of lighter weight. For the current AeroDR 3, Konica Minolta uses its first TFT substrate made of thin film, and together with the redesign of the internal structure, it manages to significantly reduce the weight.

Realization of a light body superior to that of CR cartridges

By using a glass-free TFT substrate and revising the internal structure, the AeroDR3 has achieved an ultra-light weight of 1.9 kg (4.2 lb) including the battery. The lightness far exceeds that of CR cartridges, which greatly reduces the operator’s workload when exposing cartridges using a mobile X-ray.

Grip design for easier handling

A 4 mm recess is provided on the entire surface of the back panel to facilitate holding the detector. This excellent design allows your fingers to easily grip the panel from any direction and aids grip.

Easy grip for users in all situations

The easy-to-grip panel supports the operator in a variety of X-ray examination situations. It can reduce the stress of operators who may feel tired after use or worry about dropping the panel.

Monocoque housing structure

Carbon SMC (Carbon Sheet Molding Compound) is used for the outer materials. The body is complex in shape but seamless in structure, light in weight but very rigid and sufficiently extruded to meet the necessary requirements in the medical field.

Antibacterial carbon enclosure

An antibacterial material containing Ag (silver) is kneaded into the enclosure material of AeroDR3. The antibacterial agent is evenly dispersed in the material in the thickness direction. Antibacterial property is not lost due to scratches in daily use.

High resolution 100/200 μm pixel size

The AeroDR3 offers the world’s smallest pixel size of 100 μm. Its process allows you to use either 100 μm or 200 μm depending on your radiography protocol.

Image Processing Engine "REALISM" for AeroDR3

“REALISM” is an image processing engine developed to maximize the image quality performance of AeroDR3 with high resolution pixels and high DQE. Thanks to its improved frequency enhancement processing, it can more faithfully depict both low and high frequency regions, and realistically produce images of fine structures such as bone trabeculae and of thick body parts (low- dose regions).

Preserve contrast while rendering the whole image clearer "REALISM" image processing process for AeroDR3

With the improved dynamic range compression processing and the newly introduced LUT, stereoscopic images are provided by expressing the individual structures from the low-dose areas to the high-dose areas.

Intelligent Grid

Intelligent grid is an image processing technology that improves image contrast by removing the effects of scattered radiation through image processing. It allows users to obtain hight quality gridless images from mobile radiography.

Tube and Gauze Image Enhancement

This image processing is specially designed to make it easier to check the remaining object in surgical imaging and to confirm the position and route of the catheter trip. Objects that are difficult to detect with normal image processing can be highlighted.
