October 26, 2010 – At RSNA 2010, Agfa HealthCare will showcase its latest solutions in digital radiography (DR). At the heart of all the company’s digital solutions is the Musica2 imaging software and NX station. Musica2 is exam-independent and analyzes the characteristics of each image and optimizes processing parameters, independent of user input and dose settings.
New Mobile DR Solution
At RSNA 2010, Agfa HealthCare will showcase its fully motorized DX-D 100 mobile DR X-ray unit (work in progress). This heavy-duty mobile DR solution complements Agfa HealthCare's range of DR solutions. Several portable DR detectors, such as the DX-D 20, can be used with this unit. It is operated from a 15-inch touch screen and has excellent battery autonomy and generator power, to handle heavy workloads when needed.
New Floor-Mounted DR Solution
The company will also display its DX-D 400 DR X-ray solution (work in progress). Different configurations are possible from the basic analog with hard console, over manual digital with soft console, up to fully automatic digital with auto-positioning and soft console. It can be used with film, CR cassettes or with the company’s DR detectors, offering a smooth upgrade path to digital.
New DX-D 10C Retrofit Detector at Film Cassette Size
Additionally, Agfa HealthCare will unveil its DX-D 10C portable detector with needle crystals (work in progress). The small size allows it to fit into an existing analog bucky. System integrators can therefore use the detector to transform analog X-ray units into digital with the company’s DX-D Integrator packages. The combination of needle (Cesium Iodide) scintillator and Musica2 software will provide the potential to yield diagnostic quality images at lower dose.
