Agfa HealthCare’s DX-D 40 for Instant DR

DX-D 40, agfa, x-ray, DR

Agfa HealthCare has recently launched its DX-D 40 digital detector with Automatic Exposure Detection (AED), offering a fast and easy way for radiography facilities to benefit from high-quality digital imaging using any X-ray equipment. Wireless and cable-free, it allows healthcare facilities, regardless of size or budget, to cost-effectively upgrade film and CR mobile X-ray units to Digital Radiography (DR).  With a worldwide installed base of close to 50,000 digital radiography systems already, Agfa HealthCare is again lowering the threshold to go digital.

Installation of the DX-D 40 is quick, easy and non-invasive: AED requires no electrical connection to the X-ray imaging device, allowing the detector to work seamlessly with virtually any X-ray system. With its most minimal configuration — a laptop and a DX-D 40 flat panel detector — Instant DR provides ultra-mobility and versatility in X-ray image acquisition.

Complemented by Agfa HealthCare’s next generation MUSICA image processing, the Instant DR solution provides “no-excuses” image quality with maximum contrast detail.
