Why empower your X-ray department with DR Retrofit?

The DR Retrofit with Dura-line detectors is built to support you with three key values – confidence, workflow and image quality – so you can focus on your patient, not your equipment!

Why choose DR Retrofit?

Confidence: Robust reliable in more situations

The panels’ IP67 waterproof rating and 1-meterdrop height resistance let you work confidently , while the temperature range of 0-40°C makes them ideal for specialized applications, such as veterinary or military. Finally, theWPA2-PSK cybersecurity helps you keep patient data secure.

Productivity: diagnose more patient in a shorter time

DR Retrofit with Dura-line™ gives you the choice of one or two batteries: the outstanding battery autonomy of up to 15 hours operating time (with 2 batteries) keeps you going throughout a shift, on one charge.

No compromises

One DR Retrofit can be shared with multiple X-ray systems. Your mobile and stationary X-ray systems – including standard Bucky tables, floor stands and neonatal incubator trays – can become highproductivity DR systems, giving you a cost-effective path to DR anywhere across your departments.

Our gold standard MUSICA™ image processing uses AI algorithms to deliver sharp images with amazing details.

“With COVID, we need to be able to divide the flow of patients very quickly, into clear and suspected cases.  The speed and mobility of the DR Retrofits increases our productivity.”

” Upgrading to DR will make our imaging more efficient overall. But with the MUSICA™ Chest+ for gridless bedside chest imaging, our mobile imaging in particular will see a big increase in productivity, as well as in comfort for both staff and patients.”

Dura-line Detectors

Dura-line Cesium Iodide detectors deliver robust reliability, cost-effectiveness and potential for significant patient dose reduction*. Offering outstanding 15h battery autonomy, detector sharing (that maximizes the value of your investments), and an ergonomic design, they support you to enhance productivity in imaging.

*Testing with board-certified radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) detectors, when used with MUSICA™ image processing, can provide dose reductions of 50 to 60%, compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems.
