Agfa’s First Fully Motorized, Mobile DR System Now Available in U.S.

August 18, 2011 – Agfa HealthCare announced that its mobile digital radiography (DR) system, the DX-D 100, is available for delivery in the United States and Canada. This highly maneuverable DR unit combines full mobility with Agfa HealthCare's excellent image processing. The result enables high-quality radiology exams to be efficiently performed in mobile environments, including intensive care units (ICUs), emergency departments, operating rooms or at the bedside.

Exceptional contrast detail and image quality plus fast preview

The DX-D 100 uses Agfa HealthCare's NX workstation and is supported by MUSICA2, Agfa HealthCare's gold-standard image processing software, for excellent contrast detail and image quality. It is available with conventional Gadolinium or high-DQE Cesium DR panels for dose sensitive patients. It delivers fast image preview and excellent image resolution.

Using either a Wi-Fi connection or wired network capabilities, the patient worklist is downloaded to the DX-D 100 from the facility's radiology information system (RIS). Immediately following image acquisition, images can be sent to the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) or to an imager for printing.

View images immediately after exposure

Handling a broad range of general radiography X-ray exams, the DX-D 100 offers a very short exposure time; images are available for a quality control check almost immediately. With image storage of up to 4,000 images at any time, comparison with prior images is quick and convenient, and the combination of greater productivity and image quality translates into a lower cost per exam and higher diagnostic efficiency.

The DX-D 100 is equipped with high X-ray generator power (up to 50 kW effective power) for accurate imaging of dense areas. This high generator power is designed to result in short exposure times while producing sharp images. The feature is particularly useful for abdomen and spine exams and also for X-rays of bariatric patients.

Designed for maximum usability and reliability

The DX-D 100 is a heavy-duty, yet easy-to-maneuver mobile digital X-ray unit. With its small width, large rear wheels and fully motorized system, it is easily moved and operated by a single person, enabling an improvement in the efficiency of mobile imaging.

The DX-D 100 is operated from a 17-inch touch screen and has excellent battery power management to handle heavy workloads when needed. Separate battery packs for driving and imaging deliver capacity efficiency, allowing, for example, up to 200 thorax examinations with one battery charge. The motor and generator batteries can be charged even while the unit is being used, thus eliminating any downtime during the charging process.
