Konica's Regius unit digitizes x-ray studies

Article

A new storage phosphor-based x-ray digitization unit will be displayed in the booth of Konica Medical of Wayne, NJ (Hall A, #1332). The system, called Regius, is designed for upright chest and abdomen studies and will be shown as a work-in-progress.

A new storage phosphor-based x-ray digitization unit will be displayed in the booth of Konica Medical of Wayne, NJ (Hall A, #1332). The system, called Regius, is designed for upright chest and abdomen studies and will be shown as a work-in-progress.

Konica will emphasize both the 20-second acquisition and cycle time of Regius and the fact that images can be processed and sent into a DICOM network without the need to remove the storage phosphor plate and take it to a separate reader, a drawback with computed radiography systems. Konica has installed 20 Regius systems in Japan and hopes to begin selling the system in the U.S. in 1998.
