NASHUA, N.H., July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016.

Leesburg, VA, Aug. 1, 2016 — study released in the July 2016 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology found that biphenotypic primary liver carcinoma (also called hepatocholangiocarcinoma) may be misclassified as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) if interpretation is based on major imaging features alone.

Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, part of East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust, has recently upgraded its range of breast boards to improve patient comfort and optimise clinical efficiency. 

Wayne, NJ, August 1, 2016 – Konica Minolta announced today that Shimadzu Medical Systems has selected the AeroDR as the exclusive flat panel detector for the newly designed MobileDaRt MX7i portable DR imaging system. Working collaboratively with Konica Minolta Medical Imaging, Shimadzu has developed this brand new system as the flagship Mobile Radiology solution, integrating Konica Minolta’s AeroDR panels into Shimadzu’s leading X-ray portable system and proprietary software to deliver optimized workflow and ease-of-use in all portable imaging environments including the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Emergency Room (ER), Operating Room (OR) and the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Mobile X-ray systems are used in hospitals to image patients at bedside when the patient cannot be transported to the radiology department. Shimadzu became a pioneer of Mobile Digital Radiography (DR) in 2005 when they added digital X-ray capability to their acclaimed MobileArt system, a portable system that used only film and or CR technology.  

“The new MobileDaRt MX7i showcases the value of both the Shimadzu DR200 Software advances and the innovative design of AeroDR detectors to provide what will surely be the next award-winning solution for Mobile X-ray imaging,” said Dan Baskel, Senior National Account Executive at Konica Minolta Medical Imaging.   

Because the new system is an integrated all-in-one DR system, both the Radiology Technologist (RT) and patient benefit from the X-ray generator controlling the imaging media, ensuring that they work as one system. All components work in unison to optimize image quality. This new integrated system also increases productivity with optimal power management to maximize battery life by detecting when the system is idle, conserving power and increasing the time the system can be used before recharging. 

Shimadzu selected the Konica Minolta AeroDR Flat Panel Detector to integrate into the portable system for the unique advantages it brings. The 14” x 17” panels are light weight, water resistant and rugged with grip strips for easier holding and fit most operating room tables. The 10” x 12” panel is well suited for extremities as well as small patients, such as those in the NICU.

“The partnership between Konica Minolta Medical Imaging and Shimadzu Medical Systems is built on a collective vision and commitment to provide our customers with solutions that will improve workflow and patient outcomes,” said Eric Sumner, Executive Vice President, The Americas at Konica Minolta Medical Imaging.  “The new MobileDaRt MX7i portable system with the Konica Minolta AeroDR detector is a testament to that commitment.”  

Additional design enhancements of the MX7i include: 

  • Maximized battery life and ability to charge the detectors at the portable unit 
  • 17 inch LCD monitor to give users a large field of view  
  • Ergonomic design with additional storage space for added convenience 

“There is an unmet need for higher performance systems in the mobile imaging market that the new MobileDaRt MX7i fulfills,” said Frank Serrao, Marketing Manager for Shimadzu Medical Systems USA. “As a detector-diagnostic X-ray supplier, we are a discerning customer as well, and have tested and evaluated the AeroDR and believe it’s the superior option on the market.” 

The MX7i is available for sale immediately for new users and current users looking to upgrade. For more information, visit www.shimadzu.com.
