Agfa Showcases DR Solutions at AHRA 2011

August 19, 2011 — Agfa HealthCare announced it would showcase its direct radiography (DR) solutions at AHRA 2011, the annual meeting for the Association for Medical Imaging Management. The event was held Aug. 14-17, in Grapevine, Texas.

The company’s comprehensive DX-D portfolio includes fully automated, integrated digital X-ray rooms, mobile DR units and basic, affordable DR solutions.

DX-D 100: The DX-D 100 is a compact, fully motorized mobile DR X-ray unit. It is equipped with high X-ray generator power (up to 50 kW effective power) for enhanced imaging of dense areas. The high generator power offers shorter exposure times and sharper images, especially in abdominal and spinal exams and X-rays of bariatric patients. The system is operated from a 17-inch touch screen. Separate battery packs for driving and imaging can handle heavy workloads when needed. Furthermore, the unit can perform X-ray exams during charging.

MUSICA2 image processing software: Inherent to each Agfa HealthCare DR solution are MUSICA2, the company’s image processing software, and its established NX platform. The MUSICA2 software automatically analyzes the characteristics of each image and optimizes processing parameters independent of user input and dose settings. It is unaffected by the presence of collimation or direct X-ray backgrounds in the image. The software can also improve the overall visibility of clinically relevant structures, in particular making low-contrast details more easily perceptible.
