(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.
