The right dose of expertise
Agfa’s digital radiography solutions are designed according to the ALARA principle (as low as reasonably achievable) to deliver the optimum balance between low radiation dose and high image quality, while providing the tools to monitor patient exposures.
Reducing dose to the minimum while maintaining high image quality takes careful management. We make sure you have the tools you need to monitor and control patient dose.
Agfa’s patented MUSICA™ image processing offers excellent image quality and greater diagnostic confidence for low-dose images.
MUSICA™ image processing with fractional multiscale denoising (FMD) can achieve active noise reduction based on selective and fractional attenuation with preservation of the fine and subtle image structures.
Our dose-efficient Cesium detectors are available with both direct radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) systems. They can help you reduce dose for pediatric and neonatal applications up to 60%, depending on the examination and conditions.*
Our patented MUSICA™ image processing software plays a role, too, providing excellent image quality and greater diagnostic confidence with low-dose pediatric images.
* Testing with board certified Radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors when used with MUSICA™ processing can provide dose reductions between 50 to 60% when compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems. Contact us for more details.

Agfa has a long-term history as well as worldwide leadership in X-ray image processing. It was therefore considered appropriate to carry out a study on a larger clinical scale in order to obtain reliable clinical data and to re-confirm and quantify real-world image quality.
The study covered the complete range of standard DR systems: from full-sized, ceiling mounted systems; to floor mounted systems; to DR retrofit setups. In addition, it provided for the first time detailed information on clinical dose levels applied with digital X-ray detectors.
