July 16, 2015 - Agfa HealthCare announced that Prime Healthcare Services has agreed to purchase 50 Agfa DX-D 100 mobile digital radiography (DR) units to serve its hospitals after a thorough due diligence process. Agfa's value proposition included, in addition to the clinical benefits, its Technology Evolution Financing, allowing Prime Healthcare to acquire a minimum of  50 mobile DR systems over a 60-month period. By bundling the resources of sales, service and financing, Prime Healthcare Services will enjoy an inclusive and complete digital mobile solution with equipment and maintenance protection for optimal use. These units will be deployed in 2015, with the possibility to increase the number of units to 70 or more.

With more than 35,000 employees and staff, Prime Healthcare operates 34 acute care hospitals in 11 states.

The DX-D 100 is a maneuverable DR unit combining full mobility with Agfa's MUSICA image processing, which offers excellent contrast detail and image quality. The result enables high-quality radiology exams to be efficiently performed in mobile environments, including intensive care units (ICUs), emergency departments, operating rooms or at the bedside. The DX-D 100 comes with the MUSICA workstation, which enables technologists to quickly and efficiently acquire images. The DX-D 100 is available with conventional gadolinium DR panels, and to take advantage of potential dose reduction capabilities, the DX-D 100 is also available with high-DQE cesium DR panels.
