Imaging excellence, clinical confidence
DX-D 100: The DX-D 100, one of the leading systems in Agfa HealthCare’s extensive line-up of DR solutions, is a compact, fully-motorized and easy-to-handle mobile DR X-ray unit. The DX-D 100 is equipped with high X-ray generator power (up to 50 kW effective power) for enhanced imaging of dense areas. This high generator power offers shorter exposure times and sharper images, especially in abdominal and spinal exams and X-rays of bariatric patients. The DX-D 100 is operated from a 17-inch touch screen; separate battery packs for driving and imaging provide superior battery autonomy to handle heavy workloads when needed. Furthermore, the unit can perform X-ray exams during charging, a very unique feature.

MUSICA2 image processing software: Inherent to each Agfa HealthCare DR solution are MUSICA2, Agfa HealthCare’s gold-standard image processing software for excellent image quality, and its established NX platform for a smooth workflow. The MUSICA2 software automatically analyzes the characteristics of each image and optimizes processing parameters independent of user input and dose settings. It is unaffected by the presence of collimation or direct X-ray backgrounds in the image, leading to consistently high-quality results. The software can also improve the overall visibility of clinically relevant structures, in particular making low-contrast details more easily perceptible.
