Sony Highlights New High-Speed 8x10 Dicom Digital Imager At RSNA 2007


Sony is expanding its line of medical imaging technology at the RSNA meeting with the new UP-D74XRD DICOM high-speed 8 x 10 monochrome digital imager.

Designed specifically for use with medical diagnostic imaging systems, the UP-D74XRD is ideal for use in ultrasound, mobile c-arm, and X-ray applications for hospitals, imaging centers, physicians’ or veterinarians’ offices.

“With its ability to output both film and paper at a high level of resolution, this new imager offers a flexible, cost-efficient option for medical professionals who need 8x10 multi-format capabilities,” said George Santanello, director of marketing for medical products at Sony Electronics.

The new imager uses a silent-print mechanism and can generate up to 90 high-resolution prints per hour (just a 40-second print time) for time-critical medical applications. The system automatically recognizes the media type being used and adjusts the gamma curve appropriately to reproduce a precise grayscale.

It features built-in DICOM and USB interfaces for use within a PACS network or for direct connection to a modality.

Front-panel LCD display controls and media loading help enable simple operation, while its lightweight, small design allows for tabletop operation or easy integration into a cart-based mobile system.

The UP-D74XRD imager uses Sony’s direct thermal printing technology to produce photo-quality prints with a superb image resolution of approximately 300 dpi. Its use of Sony dry-processing technology also eliminates the need for chemical waste disposal.

The UP-D74XRD digital imager is available now at a suggested list price of $7,995.
