- Agfa HealthCare will showcase digital radiography solutions at AAMI to meet a range of needs and budgets without sacrificing efficiency or image quality.
- Portable DX-D 100 system enables point-of-care treatment for patients in need.
- Agfa HealthCare demonstrates commitment to efficiency and cost-savings with immediate image availability and integration.

(AAMI 2012, Booth #420, Charlotte, NC) Agfa HealthCare announces today its showcase of versatile direct radiography (DR) imaging solutions which will be on display in booth #420 at AAMI 2012, the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation Conference & Expo, June 2-4 in Charlotte, N.C. Focused on the development and delivery of DR systems that meet the high quality standards in medical imaging, Agfa HealthCare offers a full range of digital imaging solutions to meet various budgets, environments and clinical applications requirements.
"Today's imaging centers, hospitals and government facilities demand portable technology that can serve a broad range of radiographic patient needs along with quick, easy image viewing for assessment at the point of care," said Greg Cefalo, U.S. Digital Radiography Business Unit Manager, Agfa HealthCare U.S. "That's exactly what Agfa HealthCare delivers with the powerful combination of the DX-D 100 digital x-ray system, MUSICA2 image processing, and NX workstation-with much needed cost savings, too."



DX-D 100: The heavy duty, fully motorized, portable DR X-ray unit, the DX-D 100, brings imaging to the field, enabling DR quality images to be captured in remote environments, at the patient bedside, or any place where space is limited. Thanks to its ergonomic design, the DX-D 100 is easily moved and operated by a single person, for improved quality and efficiency of bedside imaging. It delivers immediate previews and leading-edge resolution for a broad range of general radiography X-ray studies.

MUSICA2: Inherent to every DR solution is MUSICA2, Agfa HealthCare's gold standard image processing software for excellent image quality, which makes use of the company's established NX platform for a smooth workflow. The exam independent imaging processing software automatically analyzes each image, optimizing processing parameters and generating consistent, top-notch image results. The software can also improve the overall visibility of clinically relevant structures, making especially low contrast details more easily perceptible.

NX Workstation: The smooth workflow of Agfa HealthCare's NX Workstation enables seamless connectivity with PACS, HIS and RIS. When a user selects an exam, the X-ray settings are automatically transferred to the generator and displayed on the touch-screen console. This intuitive quality control tool was designed with radiographers and radiologists in mind, facilitating improved interoperability, convenience and speed for "anytime, anywhere" care delivery.
"For departments needing to 'do more with less,' our focus on workflow provides the efficiency needed to lower exam costs and enable better communication between physicians," said Cefalo. "The government sector, especially, can benefit from the integration elements we've put in place."

Agfa HealthCare's additional offerings in the DR market include the DX-D 300, DX-D 400, DX-D 500n, and DX-D 600 along with Cesium Iodide (CsI) and Gadolinium Oxy-Sulphide (GOS) detectors for every system.
