Konica KDR AU System Advanced U-Arm

The compact, efficient KDR™ Advanced U-Arm (AU) System from Konica Minolta Healthcare features an array of advanced design innovations to optimize workflow, increase staff efficiency and improve outcome expediting the diagnostic process and elevating the patient experience. That makes it an excellent option for all settings.

Product Description

The KDR™ Advanced U-Arm System employs a state-of-the-art, 17”x17”  Cesium iodide (CSI) detector that maximizes efficiency and delivers image quality with excellent bone and soft-tissue visualization from a single study exposure, giving you the clarity to reach diagnoses sooner. The system maintains alignment between the X-ray tube and DR panel, regardless of panel angle or swivel arm tilt position. A durable, protective panel enclosure also helps to increase system longevity and stability.




KDR™ Advanced U-Arm System automatically swivels into position across a 135Ëš range of motion and 35" of vertical movement, saving valuable time. The advanced detector and Ultra® acquisition software work quickly in unison to enhance the acquired image. Information is instantly retrieved, prompting the system to move to a predetermined position and source-to-image-receptor distance (SID) to save time when positioning the patient.


Exams are simplified when the operator can confirm the patient’s information on the tube-mounted or remote console. After exposure, the image is captured and displayed for on-screen review within three seconds. Upon approval, the automated preparation begins for the next exam, minimizing time between patients.


KDR™ Advanced U-Arm can move from PA to Lateral positions without moving the patient and Independent SID control on the tube and the detector to support all other imaging views commonly required in radiology, including wheelchair and table work.


KDR™ Advanced U-Arm offers optional automatic stitching with a three-knob collimator that provides precise manual control over the imaging area to reduce radiation scatter.
