Agfa HealthCare Celebrates 150 Years at RSNA 2017

September 20, 2017 — Agfa Healthcare announced that its exhibition at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting will carry the theme of “150 Years of Evidence,” celebrating the company’s 150th anniversary. RSNA 2017 is scheduled for Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

Agfa’s offerings at the meeting will demonstrate how the company's solutions create new cost efficiencies that allow for secure access to patient information and the delivery of high-quality care. Hands-on demonstrations and case study discussions will focus on the impact on patient care delivered by the company's Enterprise Imaging platform and high-quality image processing solutions.  

The portfolio extends from dynamic imaging powered by MUSICA image processing, to the converged Enterprise Imaging platform with specialized departmental workflow and comprehensive image management services.

Agfa HealthCare Enterprise Imaging platform was designed expressly to support the central role that image capture and interpretation play in diagnosis, care and outcomes. The Enterprise Imaging platform is purpose-built to enable radiologists to practice consultative medicine securely from any location, advancing both patient and referring physician satisfaction. For example, maximizing the value of images in diagnosis and treatment, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared Xero Xtend adds 3-D processing and advanced functionalities to the Xero universal viewer. By transitioning to Agfa's Enterprise Imaging solution, customers across the globe are creating a multispecialty patient imaging health record, building the foundation for future-proof radiology and multispecialty imaging workflows. Hands-on stations of the Enterprise Imaging platform will demonstrate how the solution is helping radiologists improve delivery of quality care with tools for real-time, secure visual collaboration with any stakeholder, advanced analytics and task-based workflow optimization. Platform design features focus on improving productivity, delivering rich applications and bringing radiology at the forefront in the delivery of evidence-based care.

Increased focus by care providers on patient outcomes, cost and efficient delivery models continue to demand innovative approaches to clinical workflow solutions. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI), mobility and cloud computing are promising to redefine patient and clinician experience and challenge traditional care delivery models. Patients demand interaction that is insightful, personal, tailored to their care and responsive to their needs.

Agfa HealthCare's Enterprise Imaging platform enhances multi-disciplinary collaboration leveraging cloud and mobile technologies, enhances clinical intelligence by leveraging AI and cognitive technologies to help improve the delivery of patient care and efficiency for clinicians.

The new DR 800 multi-purpose digital imaging system, a work in progress and not available in the U.S. and Canada, also will be on display at RSNA 2017.  The DR 800 solution delivers radiography, fluoroscopy and advanced clinical applications. Its MUSICA high-speed, multi-scale image processing software handles fluoroscopic images with high quality and low-dose features.  

Agfa HealthCare's Fast Forward to DR (digital radiography) program helps providers upgrade their X-ray imaging equipment at an affordable cost, often with no capital expense. The flexible program allows healthcare organizations to leverage their existing imaging investments, resulting in higher quality images, the potential for lower radiation dosages when cesium (CsI)-based detectors are used, increased productivity and a smooth, efficient workflow. Fast Forward to DR includes step-by-step, individualized return on investment guidance from Agfa's team of specialists to help the health system get the most from Agfa's DR offerings.

Also highlighted at the booth will be the Advanced Clinical Workflow applications that enable multi-disciplinary consultation on a universal viewer linking digital radiography in real-time to enterprise imaging.
