Today at an RSNA unveiling complete with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and an audience participation drum circle, Agfa launched a new mobile X-ray system, the DR 100s.
The DR 100s is built to be a high-productivity, ergonomic, mobile DR imaging solution with a patient-friendly design to help providers image more efficiently.
The new system is standard equipped with the MUSICA Acquisition Workstation, which offers a single, intuitive interface for smooth and efficient imaging, on a 22-inch touch screen monitor. It enables comfortable viewing of image previews and access to a broad range of tools, applications and features.
Numed, a well established company in business since 1975 provides a wide range of service options including time & material service, PM only contracts, full service contracts, labor only contracts & system relocation. Call 800 96 Numed for more info.
The system offers a broad range of applications, including Chest, Abdomen, Skeletal and Long-Length stitching exams, to improve productivity while supporting enhanced patient care.
"The DR 100s gives us excellent quality and dose for our bedside chest imaging. We can use a high kV technique, which enables a reduced radiation dose. We get 'X-ray room' image quality, with mobile advantages," said Claire Cooke, radiographer reporting practitioner, West Suffolk Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (U.K.), in a statement accompanying the release. "The DR 100s has the same MUSICA image processing as our X-ray room. We can see the images right then and there, and do any windowing if necessary. The Wi-Fi connection is good, and the images are sent right off to the PACS."
With its swift, motor-driven, and compact design, the DR 100s offers excellent maneuverability. Its 22.8"/58 cm width and FreeView collapsible telescopic column enable it to be easily moved along crowded corridors and narrow patient care units.
