Konica Medical Imaging displayed a new computed radiography reader at the recent RSNA show. Following up on its 1998 RSNA meeting launch of the cassetteless Regius 330 chest and abdominal imaging system, Konica introduced Regius 150, a cassette-based unit. Konica designed Regius 150 to facilitate dispersed CR imaging and improve user efficiency. The unit can be used in emergency rooms, critical care and trauma centers, and radiology departments, according to the firm. Regius 150 is DICOM compliant and uses a touch screen interface and long-lasting plates, according to the Wayne, NJ-based company.

Regius’s single interface allows technologists to input patient data, select exams, process images, and then distribute them to a DICOM network. Its five plates can be inserted into vertical bays, scanned, then removed without contact or distortion, eliminating scratches and extending the life of the plates, according to Konica. The unit’s cassette is made of carbon fiber and a reinforced frame, which allows for maximum absorption of useful radiation and minimal patient exposure, according to the company.
