July 12, 2013 — Agfa HealthCare announced the availability of its newest digital radiography (DR) detector, the DX-D 35C, an 11x14-inch wireless panel with high spatial resolution for detail. The detector will be on display at the annual meeting of the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) July 28-31 in Minneapolis.

Potential for dose reduction

Agfa’s DX-D 35C uses a cesium iodide (CsI) scintillator with twice the DQE (detective quantum efficiency) of gadolinium-based detector technologies, and delivers the potential for lower dose. Combined with Agfa’s NX workstation and Musica2 image processing, the panel produces enhanced contrast detail across the entire dynamic range. For orthopedic imaging, the DX-D 35C with NX and Musica2 is an excellent solution for extremity exams, enabling superb contrast and detail of hands and feet.

Increased efficiency in portable environments

“At Agfa HealthCare, we are always striving to improve healthcare technology to make diagnostic imaging an even more powerful tool to aid the overall treatment of the patient, and the DX-D 35C combined with Musica2 is an excellent example of our ability to successfully do this,” said Greg Cefalo, U.S. DR business unit manager for Agfa HealthCare. “From the smallest, most fragile patients through the spectrum of imaging needs, we are focused on delivering high-quality imaging solutions that support the highest level of care.”

In addition to the numerous image quality benefits of the system, the DX-D 35C immediately captures and transmits the image to the workstation, increasing efficiency for the technologist, particularly in portable environments where it is intended for most frequent use. It is an ideal complement for the Agfa DX-D 100, a portable imaging system designed for bedside imaging, and immediate image availability to a picture archiving and communication system (PACS). The detector is also available with the DX-D Retrofit and soon with DX-D 400 and DX-D 600.

The DX-D 35C is currently available for sale throughout North America.
