Showcase of broadest portfolio ever for digital radiography

As an established supplier of comprehensive and innovative solutions, we are ideally positioned to address some of the toughest challenges currently facing the healthcare market. We are dedicated to continually providing solutions for both computed radiography (CR) and direct radiography (DR) to enhance the delivery of patient care, help reduce costs, and increase operational and clinical efficiencies.

At RSNA 2010, we will demonstrate how our strong CR and DR portfolio is addressing the need to deal with a variety of general radiography exams in an optimal way. We will be showcasing the power of CR versatility with the productivity of DR. We have leveraged our imaging know-how to generate digital radiography systems providing excellent image quality. At the heart of all our digital solutions lie Agfa HealthCare's gold standard MUSICA2 imaging software and NX user station. Exam-independent MUSICA2 automatically analyzes the characteristics of each image and optimizes processing parameters - independent of user input and dose settings.
