Agfa Launches Automated, Ceiling Mounted DX-D 600 DR System in U.S.

December 19, 2011 – At RSNA 2011, Agfa HealthCare launched its automated DX-D 600 digital radiography (DR) system into the U.S. market. Combining user-friendly design with excellent image quality in a high-productivity direct digital X-ray room, the fully automatic system also offers the latest in state-of-the-art auto-positioning technology.

High-productivity DR room offers excellent image quality

The fully motorized, auto-positioning DX-D 600 is ideal for facilities with a high patient load that are looking to streamline workflow to increase patient comfort. Quick, easy manual movement in all directions makes it well adapted for emergency situations.

With MUSICA2 image processing technology, offering consistent image quality with enhanced contrast detail, and the NX acquisition workstation, for user-friendly workflow, the DX-D 600 delivers excellent X-ray room performance. The dual Cesium Iodide (CsI) DR detector technology located in the wall stand and table provides excellent image quality, immediate image availability and high X-ray sensitivity.

Options and configurations for greater flexibility

The versatile solution includes single or dual detectors, and three configuration options: manual movement, semi-automatic movement with vertical and table tracking (both Works in Progress), and fully automatic positioning.

Excellent digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) connectivity and integration with radiology information systems (RIS), hospital information systems (HIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and imagers provide flexibility for soft or hard copy output and improve workflow.
