Agfa HealthCare will introduce its new DR 800 x-ray room with Dynamic Musica at the Radiological Society of North America’s 102nd scientific assembly and annual meeting in Chicago next week. The multi-purpose digital radiography suite is designed to enable radiology departments to meet the growing demand for fluoroscopy, without requiring multiple investments.
The DR 800 can handle a full range of radiographic exams—skeletal, thorax, abdomen, and weight bearing—and fluoroscopy exams, including barium studies, arthrograms, cystograms, myelography, and catheter placement. The DR 800 also comes with Musica high-speed, multi-scale image processing, which can now also process moving images.
Along with enhanced noise suppression and advanced brightness control, Dynamic Musica processing reduces veiling glare and plays a significant role in enabling potential dose reduction. The DR 800 is further equipped with high-frequency fluoroscopy generator options of 50 kW, 65 kW or 80 kW, a console for patient-side positioning, integrated auto-switching anti-scatter grid, a 180 cm SID for uncompromising chest imaging, and EasyStitch technology for full leg/full spine exams.
Louis Kuitenbrouwer, vice president of Agfa Healthcare’s imaging division, commented about the technology, saying: “High-quality imaging supports informed diagnosis and treatment decisions, critical for value-based care. With the DR 800, we are using our experience and innovation to create a versatile solution—a ‘jack of all trades’ that can be configured to match the user’s specific needs.”
