Agfa Release Affordable Tabletop Digitizer

August 6, 2012 — In an effort to provide small hospitals and practices an economical path from analog to digital radiology, Agfa launched the CR-10-X computed radiography (CR) imaging digitizer. Designed to fit in small spaces, including mobile environments, the CR 10-X is optimized for a range of imaging exams, from general radiography to orthopedic, chiropractic and full leg/full spine (FLFS) applications.

It offers high-resolution scanning of 100 µm pixels at a rate of 34 imaging plates per hour in a single-cassette feed. The technology is easy to install and maintain, making the path to digital imaging both affordable and convenient.

The CR 10-X has network capabilities that allow fast workflow and seamless integration. It comes with the MUSICA2 imaging processing technology, which automatically applies the appropriate image enhancement parameters independent of the exam type. Seamless integration is available with the NX workstation, Agfa's image identification and quality control tool. Fully DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine)-compliant, the NX workstation provides fast image acquisition and a smooth workflow. Combining the CR 10-X with Agfa's Drystar 5302 imager or SE suite software delivers a complete hardcopy or softcopy CR solution at an affordable price.

Special LED technology in the erasure unit means also low power consumption. With a "one screwdriver" concept and modular, component-based design, maintenance of the CR 10-X is easy, quick and cost-effective.
