Keep reading to see vital statistics for the Regius 190 and the Carbon XL-2. With any luck, by the end of this article, it won't take a mind trick to have you saying, "These are the CRs I'm looking for."
Konica Regius vs. Fuji Carbon:
|Feature||Konica Regius 190||Fuji Carbon XL2|
|Plates Per Hour||90||94|
|Cycle Time||40 seconds||58 seconds|
|Sampling Pitch||87.5/175 microns||50 microns|
*Installed, with 1-year warranty
As you can see from the specs above, these two models are comparable in a number of ways. So what's the real advantage of choosing either over the other? Good question. Our answer: as a certain diminutive, green fellow might say, "If on you read, learn more you will."
Where the Regius 190 Wins
If you want to read mammo studies, the Regius is the standout. This unit is approved for mammography use in both the US and Europe. The Carbon XL-2 is not mammo-approved in the US.
Where the Carbon XL-2 Wins
For facilities where space is a concern, the smaller footprint of the Carbon XL-2 is a win. The systems are roughly the same width, but the Regius is nearly 8 inches deeper and over 16 inches taller.
Ultimately, the choice comes down to whether or not you plan to read mammo and where in the world you will be working. For general use reading, however, these systems perform comparably and could both be a good fit for your facility.
