FDA Clears Agfa's DR 800 Multipurpose Digital Imaging System

April 26, 2018 — Agfa HealthCare has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its DR 800 multi-purpose imaging system. Offering one solution for digital radiography, fluoroscopy and advanced clinical applications, the DR 800 supports the role of radiology in the value-based care organization with increased versatility, functionality and efficiency.

The DR 800 comes standard with Dynamic MUSICA, for both static and dynamic (moving) images. This image processing software also enhances noise suppression, offers excellent brightness control, reduces veiling glare and plays a significant role in enabling potential dose reduction. MUSICA processes fluoroscopic images with the same high-quality and low-dose features.

The new system adds the X-Team Technology workflow enrichment that integrates the Xero universal viewer, which provides secure access to images from different departments and sources in one view, in the MUSICA workstation. Collaboration features, such as instant messaging and clinical dialogue, enhance consultation on study acquisition between radiologists and radiographers.

The highly versatile, fully integrated DR 800 offers a three-in-one digital imaging solution that can handle a full range of radiography (including static exams and tilting exams) and fluoroscopy exams (including barium studies, arthrograms, cystograms, myelography and catheter placement, etc.) without requiring multiple investments.

With its positioning freedom and workflow improvements, the DR 800 enhances both efficiency and patient satisfaction. Its 180 cm SID enables high-quality chest imaging. The customizable system can be equipped with high-frequency fluoroscopy generator options of 50, 65 or 80 kW, a console for patient-side positioning, a wireless console for remote control, a compressor cone and an auto-switching anti-scatter grid. EasyStitch technology enables fast and high precision Full Leg Full Spine exams, while LiveVision technology allows for dose-free remote positioning. Use of cesium iodide (CsI) detector technology combined with MUSICA image processing offers high-speed, high-resolution imaging and enables the potential for dose reduction.

Carestream’s X-ray digital tomosynthesis functionality creates three-dimensional datasets from digital radiography (DR) that can be scrolled through similar to computed tomography (CT) imaging. It received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020. Digital tomosynthesis uses a single sweep of X-ray exposures and streamlines operator workflow by separating the process of DT exposure acquisition from image volume formation.
