Crystal Lake, Il. – March, 2017 - As a podiatrist, Kenneth R. Meisler, D.P.M., FACFAS, P.L.L.C., now believes that integrating diagnostic ultrasound
into his practice “was absolutely one of the best decisions I ever made.” However, Dr. Meisler initially delayed adding the modality to his New York City-based practice, having been skeptical about ultrasound’s ability to enhance care for his 100+ daily patients.
Lake in the Hills, Il. – June 20, 2016 - 20/20 Imaging, a division of Konica Minolta Healthcare and leader in small market imaging with nearly 4,500 installations across the country, announced today the publication of a technical paper to help podiatry practices transition from film or Computed Radiography (CR) to Digital Radiography (DR) in light of expected reimbursement penalties for film or CR users over the next several years. The federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, or the Omnibus Bill, includes a number of health-related provisions including a reduction in Medicare payments for imaging exams performed on analog X-ray and CR equipment.
Garner, N.C. –November 16, 2015 - 20/20 Imaging, a Konica Minolta company and leader in small market imaging with nearly 4,500 installations across the country, announced today that the University of Washington Valley Medical Center, Renton, Wash., and Kadlec Medical Center, Richland, Wash, have installed the HF PXS-710D digital x-ray system. The first DR system designed specifically with advanced features for podiatry imaging, the HF PXS-710D has continued to set sales records since receiving FDA approval earlier this year. Furthermore, with the support of sales and distribution partner CMX Medical Imaging, 20/20 Imaging is seeing strong growth and expansion to the medical center market with this new system.
Wayne, NJ, October 1, 2015 – Konica Minolta, Inc. today announced the completed acquisition of Garner, North Carolina based Viztek, LLC, a leading innovative healthcare company, through Konica Minolta Medical Imaging. With this acquisition, Konica Minolta enhances its capabilities to offer comprehensive, end-to-end healthcare IT solutions from image acquisition to physician diagnosis.

The new 10x12 HG+ DR dual panel design brings significant advancements
to podiatric imaging in both the ease-of-positioning and throughput.
Due to the dual-panel design, both AP and lateral positioning can
effortlessly be achieved. With the automated design, all exams -
including weight-bearing exams - can be completed without difficulty,
eliminating any physical stress that staff may have previously had
with single panel systems or potentially wireless. Additionally, exams
can be selected right at the technologist workstation instead of
manually set by positioning detectors. With one click in the software,
the operator is assured of both the correct anatomical x-ray
technique and image processing.
The podiatry market, once dominated by film and CR, today is primed for direct digital imaging thanks to evolving hardware and software capabilities. Including an easy-to-use HG+ digital receptor, touch interface, convenient tilt-head, and robust software package that includes programmable selections and advanced image review solutions, users are extremely satisfied with this new DR technology and the new optional dual-panel configuration. With precise images for evaluation, magnification, zoom, side-by-side panning, and iPad friendly review at chairside, both patients and physicians benefit.
With each podiatry x-ray technique anatomically pre-programmed, the 20/20 Imaging's HF PXS-710 digital x-ray system saves time, assures accuracy, and further enhances efficiency by enabling exams to be selected at the technologist workstation instead of at the device. With one click in the software, the operator is assured of both the correct anatomical x-ray technique and data processing. The step of selecting x-ray technique from an x-ray control box is eliminated.
Designed as a complement to the company's existing chiropractic offerings, the iRay wireless panel brings greater flexibility to x-ray rooms with its ability to be used in the existing table, or for table-top exams. While the majority of chiropractic imaging is of the spine, there remains the approximately 20 percent of imaging for associated exams such as for extremities. Because the iRay wireless panel is designed for use with the existing software platform, implementation and training is simplified. For the patient, the speed of image acquisition helps assures comfort and quick exam times. The new iRay panel is expected to be ideal not only for chiropractic offices, but for veterinary hospitals as well. "Private practice physicians deserve medical grade products designed specifically for their specialty and to enhance the quality of care they provide their patients. 20/20 Imaging has been able to meet these needs with our innovative and growing product line-up," explained Bob Salzman, president, 20/20 Imaging.
