Agfa is thrilled to be attending RSNA 2022 in person, to shine a light on how its revolutionary smart solutions “Empower X-ray Experts” are providing intelligent and meaningful answers to real-world radiology needs.

Visitors to the Agfa stand can experience the revolutionary DR 100s, including the latest additions that make their use even easier, faster and safer. Other highlights include VALORY, which delivers “Excellence”. Pure and simple.’, with x-ray rooms suspended from the ceiling and floor; the intelligent and dynamic DR 800, now equipped with digital subtraction angiography; the innovative SmartXR 2/4 artificial intelligence portfolio; and the new Dura-line family of rugged, reliable and economical detectors.

Improve patient comfort, safety and care

Agfa’s extensive direct radiography (DR) portfolio combines state-of-the-art technology with ergonomic design and exceptional image quality. These solutions help busy healthcare providers maximize their workflow, without compromising reliability, safety and comfort for patients and staff.

“More than ever, healthcare and radiology teams need to ensure that each member can do what they do best. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring that every hospital can implement smart tools to “empower X-ray experts”. By putting the right features at their fingertips, our solutions aim to help these experts deliver improved patient care, delivering high image quality, a smoother and more efficient workflow, and the lowest dose possible. . We invite RSNA visitors to stop by our stand and discuss with us how we can achieve this,” comments Jeroen Spruyt, Head of DR at Agfa.

Improved mobile usability and agility: DR 100 with SmartXR

The revolutionary mobile DR 100s, designed in collaboration with users around the world, combine fast, high-quality DR imaging with excellent maneuverability and ease of use.

Manual movement is almost effortless in all three axes, thanks to the tube head with ZeroForce technology. ZeroForce has been improved to speed up vertical movements, further reducing radiographer fatigue. Further enhancements allow the X-ray beam to be centered on the body part without losing the tubehead angle, for faster and easier tubehead positioning, while additional safety features ensure that the tube head and the PC screen do not collide. The unique SmartXR provides predictive workflow assistance that helps improve efficiency and consistency of results.

A single solution for basic and advanced applications: DR 800 with DSA

The versatile DR 800 is at the heart of ‘sustainable imaging’. This flexible DR multifunction system enables healthcare providers to perform a full range of X-ray and fluoroscopy examinations, with a single investment. 3/4 Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) functionality provides a smooth and efficient workflow for angiography exams. The DR 800 comes with Dynamic MUSICA image processing software, which can handle fluoroscopic images with the same high-quality, low-dose characteristics that have made MUSICA the “gold standard” for radiology departments around the world. whole world.

Beyond the basics: VALORY and Dura-Line offer flexibility, reliability and affordability

Offering a choice of ceiling or floor-mounted x-ray tubes, VALORY offers a simple design with features that go beyond “basic”, to bring reliability, productivity and “right-first-time” imaging within everyone’s reach. hospital. It comes with top-level MUSICA image processing that is standard with all Agfa digital radiography solutions, including Dura-line Cesium Iodide detectors.

These Dura-line detectors offer rugged reliability, cost effectiveness, significant patient dose reduction potential1 and exceptional 15-hour battery life. Dura-line detectors can be shared between different modalities, using Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology. Size range 10″ x 12″ (25cm x 32cm), 14″ x 17″ (36cm x 43cm) and 17″ x 17″ (43cm x 43cm), all offer exceptional battery life and excellent scintillator quality.

VALORY, Dura-line and MUSICA together create a powerful yet affordable combination that delivers high image quality at the lowest possible dose and enables any hospital to improve imaging productivity and confidence.

The radiographer’s “intelligent assistant”: the Plug-and-Play SmartXR

SmartXR puts X-ray artificial intelligence to work to “empower X-ray experts”, adding intelligent digital radiography tools for dose, alignment, patient positioning and more to DR solutions from Agfa. Acting as the radiographer’s “intelligent assistant”, they enable a smoother, more efficient daily imaging workflow and more consistent images. 1 Tests with board-certified radiologists have determined that cesium bromide (CR) and cesium iodide (DR) detectors, when used with MUSICA image processing, can provide dose reductions of 50-60%, compared to traditional fluorobarium bromide CR systems. Contact Agfa for details. 4/4 Integrated sensors and cameras combined with powerful AI software, 3D machine vision, deep learning and artificial intelligence, help the radiographer optimize the imaging workflow while providing superior quality images.

The full SmartXR range is available for Agfa’s high-end DR 100 and DR 600 mobile rooms, while SmartRotate functionality is now available for all Agfa CR and DR systems. SmartRotate directly and automatically presents images ready for viewing, speeding up the imaging workflow and enabling better comparison with previous ones, thanks to the consistent presentation of images in the PACS.
