Agfa's Mobile DR Line Grows With Release of DX-D 100 Wireless

December 22, 2011 — Agfa HealthCare announced the expansion of its digital radiography (DR) portfolio with the addition of the DX-D 100 with wireless detector, a mobile direct digital X-ray unit. Combining full mobility with high-quality image processing, the unit provides improved patient comfort and safety with precision positioning for imaging in mobile environments.

Designed for bedside use, the system can handle a broad range of general radiography X-ray studies, and offers a very short exposure time; this results in high quality images for immediate quality control (QC) review. The higher productivity and image quality translate into lower cost per exam and higher diagnostic efficiency for imaging facilities of all sizes.

The DX-D 100 is now available with the DX-D 30C wireless, portable DR detector. This provides full mobility with high image quality when imaging even the least mobile patients. The wireless capability increases flexibility and improves the overall radiology workflow. With no trailing cable, there is less chance of picking up dirt and germs from the floor; this makes it ideal for use in intensive care units (ICUs), emergency departments, and operating rooms. Additionally, the unit can be effectively used in confined spaces.

The mobile DR system also integrates Agfa HealthCare’s NX workstation with its large 17-inch touch screen, providing fast image acquisition and a smooth, optimal workflow. The NX workstation requires minimal training, and it communicates seamlessly with picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), hospital information systems (HIS) and radiology information systems (RIS); it effectively eliminates manual data entry and the potential for typographical errors.

In addition, the company’s MUSICA2 image processing software has been specially adapted and fine-tuned to further enhance image quality. The software analyzes each image and automatically applies the appropriate image enhancement parameters independent of exam type. Combined with the powerful generator of the DX-D 100, sharp images – especially of dense areas – are delivered, making it ideal for chest, abdomen, orthopedic and spine examinations.

The DX-D 100 with wireless detector is available globally with installations beginning in December 2011.

Agfa will display the DX-D 100 portable DR system in its booth at RSNA 2011.
