November 17, 2016 — Agfa HealthCare announced that it will introduce its new DR 800 X-ray room with Dynamic MUSICA at the 2016 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2016). The multi-purpose solution covers radiography, fluoroscopy and advanced clinical applications.

The multi-purpose digital radiography suite is designed to enable radiology to meet the growing demand for fluoroscopy, without requiring multiple investments. The DR 800 is a robust and reliable solution that can handle a full range of radiographic exams (skeletal, thorax, abdomen, weight bearing) and fluoroscopy exams (including barium studies, arthrograms, cystograms, myelography and catheter placement, etc.).

The DR 800 comes with MUSICA high-speed, multi-scale image processing, which can now also process moving images. Along with enhanced noise suppression and superb brightness control, Dynamic MUSICA processing reduces veiling glare and plays a significant role in enabling potential dose reduction¹.

The DR 800 solution also offers high-quality radioscopy and fluoroscopy in supine and upright positions. With its 180 cm SID and auto-positioning presets, no compromises need to be made during chest imaging. The highly customizable DR 800 can be equipped with high-frequency fluoroscopy generator options of 50, 65 or 80 kW, a console for patient-side positioning, a wireless console for remote control, a compressor cone and an auto-switching anti-scatter grid. EasyStitch technology enables fast and high precision Full Leg Full Spine exams, while LiveVision technology allows for accurate dose-free remote positioning by providing a first-person camera view of the patient. Combined with MUSICA image processing, Advanced Cesium Iodide (CsI) detector technology offers high-speed, high-resolution imaging at low dose[1]. The flexible positioning, optimized workflow and premium image quality offered by Agfa's DR 800 solution, will enhance both efficiency and patient satisfaction.

The DR 800 X-ray room is still pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) submission and is not available in the United States and Canada.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
