By staff writers

February 5, 2020 -- Agfa HealthCare will highlight a number of new developments at ECR 2020 in Vienna, including its digital tomosynthesis technology and the European introduction of its DR 100s mobile digital radiography (DR) unit.

The vendor said that its digital tomosynthesis capability automatically presents 3D images with optimal contrast and provides consistent image quality across individual slices and images via the company's Musica image processing technology. The firm's patented tomosynthesis algorithms can capture 46 low-dose images in a 30° arc in 10 seconds, with image reconstruction taking an additional 30 seconds. Image reconstruction thickness can be set from 2 mm to 9 mm. Digital tomosynthesis is now available on Agfa's DR 600 and DR 800 systems.

In other news, Agfa will be celebrating the European launch of its DR 100s mobile imaging system, which supports applications such as chest, abdominal, skeletal, and stitched long-length exams. The company also plans to highlight the system's image quality and fast image preview functionality. In addition, DR 100s features a motor-driven and compact design, along with a tube head that utilizes Agfa's ZeroForce technology to ease manual movement in all three axes, Agfa said. The firm's Musica imaging workstation comes standard with DR 100s.
