Agfa has signed an agreement with Belgian university hospital UZ Brussels to implement its DX-D 800 direct radiography solution in the hospital's emergency department. The DX-D 800 is a three-in-one solution that requires only one investment to deliver a broad range of applications for all types of examinations.
Agfa's DX-D 800 is a complete direct X-ray room fitted with a dynamic, portable and removable flat-panel detector. It delivers a three-in-one solution, for general radiography, fluoroscopy and free exposures, using a single, detachable, tethered detector. Full leg/full spine capabilities come as standard with the solution. And it eliminates the need for additional specialist rooms. Its versatility makes it ideal for paediatric, extremity and lateral images, as well as for use with patients with reduced mobility. Moreover the anti-scatter grid can be easily removed for paediatric examinations and extremity procedures. The DX-D 800 comes with a remote-controlled table, maximising comfort for both patient and staff. A video camera allows remote patient positioning without radiation. The system also has predetermined automatic collimation and filters for each protocol, which allows a potential dose reduction while optimising image quality.
