December 23, 2014 — Agfa HealthCare announced that it has achieved an installed base of over 50,000 digital radiography solutions in hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities around the world.

Every solution in the portfolio includes Agfa HealthCare's MUSICA workstation and image processing software. Fully automatic and exam-independent, MUSICA provides consistently high image quality across computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) solutions. The image acquisition workstation improves workflow and reduces waiting and examination time to provide better patient care. Its interface offers the same look and feel for both CR and DR, plus fast previews, low cycle times and excellent integration with radiology information systems (RIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and other hospital-wide information systems.

CR and DR solutions can work alone or together: CR can be fully integrated into DR rooms, using the same NX workflow, at the same high image quality and optimal dose settings.

Agfa’s Cesium Bromide (CsBr) Needle-based Image Plates (NIP) when used with CR solutions, and Cesium Iodide (CsI) Detectors when used with DR solutions, allow dose reductions of up to 60 percent using MUSICA image processing.

Solutions such as the Fast Forward Digital Radiography Upgrade Program let hospitals follow a step-by-step upgrade path to transition from traditional CR to cesium-based CR and DR, following the guidelines of EuroSafe and Image Gently.

There were several new developments in digital radiography (DR) technology at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. These trends included integration of artificial intelligence (AI) auto detection technologies, more durable glassless detector plates, and technologies to pull more diagnostic data out of X-ray imaging. Some vendors also have redesigned their DR systems to make them more user-friendly and ergonomic.
