Konica Minolta Medical Imaging USA framed its ImagePilot CR system, introduced at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) meeting in Seattle, as a new concept in digital radiography. ImagePilot CR, designed as an integrated digital imaging acquisition, review, and storage solution specifically for physician clinics, simplifies image acquisition to a single button push using an algorithm that sets bone as the benchmark against which all other tissue densities are calculated. AutoPilot thereby eliminates the need for users to select and define algorithms for each body part.

ImagePilot CR consists of an Imaging Station and a single-bay CR reader, Nano CR Reader. The Imaging Station can support additional client stations for viewing images in different parts of a physician's office. It has local archiving capabilities and can also send DICOM images for radiologists' diagnostic interpretation or to off-site storage.
