Agfa Introducing New MUSICA Workstation at RSNA 2018

Workstation helps streamline workflow for multiple modalities across the imaging department

Agfa Introducing New MUSICA Workstation at RSNA 2018

October 4, 2018 — At the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 26-30 in Chicago, Agfa HealthCare will introduce the MUSICA Workstation, which is designed to support a customer-driven workflow for imaging departments. Developed in close cooperation with technologists, it serves as the “nerve center” of the imaging environment, offering a single, intuitive interface for smooth, efficient digital and computed general radiography (DR and CR), fluoroscopy, mammography and full leg/full spine (FLFS) imaging.

The MUSICA Workstation has been designed to meet the needs and tasks of technologists, radiologists and the imaging facilities themselves. It incorporates customer-driven innovations that facilitate flexibility and customization. Workflows can be easily tailored to users so that the most frequent tasks are the easiest to complete. Just a few taps on the touchscreen identifies a patient, initiates an exam, controls image quality and more. Radiologists have fast access to images, comfortable and quick reading with consistent image presentation, and a one-click workflow.

Covering general radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography and advanced clinical applications like full leg/full spine (FLFS) imaging and tomosynthesis, all MUSICA Workstation workflows are intuitive and efficient.  A new and refreshed user interface keeps the amount of distracting visual clutter to a minimum, providing a smooth patient and user experience. With a similar look-and-feel across modalities, it eliminates the need for special training, increases day-to-day staff efficiency and makes support much easier.

Dedicated exam protocols are available for dynamic imaging — both fluoroscopy and rapid sequence imaging. Dedicated mammography tools are optimized for specific mammography screening or diagnostic workflows. FLFS stitching offers a seamless body view, with minimal time-consuming manual interactions.

The MUSICA Workstation provides MUSICA image processing for all Agfa DR and CR systems. This software offers diagnostic confidence, with excellent image quality and consistent images, meeting the preferences of any facility and for any specialty examination. 'First time right' imaging, for any collimation, body part or patient position, helps optimize the imaging workflow, while supporting value-based patient care and potential dose reductions.

The MUSICA Workstation meets Exposure Index and IHE guidelines and is DICOM compliant. It also supports the IHE Radiation Exposure Monitoring (REM) profile, enabling structured dose reports to be sent directly to the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) or to dose monitoring systems. And it can be connected to the radiology information system (RIS) and PACS, enabling many tasks to be automated.
