Konica of Wayne, NJ, became the latest company to join the digital x-ray party when it received 510(k) clearance on June 19 from the Food and Drug Administration for Regius, an x-ray digitization system based on storage phosphor technology. Konica introduced Regius at last year’s Radiological Society of North America meeting as a system for conducting digital chest and abdomen studies (SCAN 11/26/97).

Although Regius is similar to computed radiography in that it is based on storage phosphor, unlike CR it does not require storage phosphor plates to be removed and taken to a separate reader. Images can be acquired and processed in 20 seconds and sent directly into a DICOM-based network. Konica has already installed over 20 Regius systems in Japan.
