Agfa Releases New DR Systems

July 16, 2010 – Agfa HealthCare announced this week that both its DX-D 500n and DX-D 300 direct radiography (DR) systems now are available for sale in the United States. The DX-D 300 universal arm DR solution and the ceiling-mounted DX-D 500n DR system provide Agfa HealthCare customers with powerful new DR solutions in addition to the company’s complete portfolio of computed radiography (CR) systems.

The DX-D 500n and DX-D 300 systems have been specifically developed to support a wide range of exams while also providing high image quality. The DX-D 500n and DX-D 300 are also DICOM-compliant, allowing for RIS, PACS and HIS system compatibility.

The DX-D family of products blends Agfa HealthCare’s MUSICA image processing with high-resolution flat panel detectors designed to deliver exceptional image quality and productivity. MUSICA image processing analyzes image data before applying contrast and density algorithms to enhance image details. The solution enables the DX-D 500n and DX-D 300 to deliver high-quality images on the NX acquisition workstation without user interaction. The DX-D 500n and DX-D 300 systems also deliver fast cycle times and a unified look and feel for both CR and DR exams.
