Konica ImagePilot Sigma

For facilities with low to medium volume imaging, the ImagePilot® Sigma tabletop Computed Radiography solution provides simple yet expandable imaging capabilities. From basic image acquisition to complete PACS functionality, this entry-level system meets a wide range of imaging needs.

Product Description

The ImagePilot Sigma system combines the versatile ImagePilot all-in-one acquisition and PACS user interface with the compact, lightweight, and reliable REGIUS® Sigma tabletop Computed Radiography reader. This creates a high performance small office digital solution that can grow with your imaging needs.

ImagePilot Sigma simplifies Computed Radiography image acquisition with the push of a button. This is made possible by AutoPilot Image Processing which completely automates the image optimization process. With AutoPilot, you get consistently superb images with every exposure.

In addition, ImagePilot exemplifies the true meaning of an integrated Computed Radiography system. It combines patient registration, Computed Radiography acquisition, image viewing, and long-term storage in one system that is easy to use and maintain. These advanced features eliminate the need for a separate PACS. Plus, converting your practice to digital with ImagePilot is simple and seamless as it utilizes your existing X-ray equipment.


ImagePilot Sigma includes the REGIUS® Sigma II - Konica Minolta's ultra-compact CR reader.

The ImagePilot Sigma is Konica Minolta's smallest and lightest Computed Radiography solution. The tabletop CR reader has a footprint of only 0.31m2 and weighs a mere 28kg.

The REGIUS Sigma II was designed with the environment in mind. Energy consumption has been reduced to 100VA – about the same as a household light bulb. That's one tenth the power of the smallest film processor.

ImagePilot’s AutoPilot Image Processing

This advanced imaging algorithm eliminates the need to specify details about the exam that other systems require for proper image processing. The advantages of these time-saving features are:
Consistent, superb image quality, regardless of technique or body part.

Better workflow

Only one click and a superb image is displayed. Other systems require multiple steps prior to acquiring the exam view.

Fewer mistakes

Because of the single click solution, there is no wasted time correcting views due to mixed up cassettes. ImagePilot does not care what is on the cassette. It figures it out.

Self learning

ImagePilot takes it a step further and learns the end users’ specific preferences for viewing different types of images. This improves the experience even more.

All-in-one solution

By combining acquisition, review, and storage into one system, ImagePilot eliminates the need for a separate PACS.

The benefits of this attribute are many:

Simpler workflow
Shorter learning curve for new users
Consistent user interface at every station
One manufacturer for smoother support – no finger pointing between multiple vendors


Expandable functionality – grows with your needs
Patient Registration
One click image acquisition—AutoPilot
Image Review with annotation and measurement tools
