Agfa HealthCare (Mortsel, Belgium) delivered on its promise and vision to transform digital radiography, with intelligent, meaningful answers to healthcare imaging needs at the fully virtual ECR 2021 held in Vienna, Austria from March 3-10, 2021.

For the second year in a row, ECR was held virtually, due to the health and safety requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic. Agfa participated in ECR 2021 with an online booth and demonstrations. During the event, Agfa launched the groundbreaking SmartXR on its mobile DR 100s, using artificial intelligence (AI) to increase operational efficiency and clinical performance at the point of care.

At its virtual booth, visitors discovered Agfa’s comprehensive direct radiography (DR) portfolio. With solutions ranging from entry-level mobile units to multi-purpose, automated rooms, all powered by MUSICA, healthcare facilities of every size and budget can benefit from superb image quality and low radiation dose. The highlights included digital tomosynthesis, which adds clinical value to a wide range of applications; the DX-D 300, delivering a compact solution for all exams; MUSICAFlex for unprecedented flexibility to match the MUSICA image processing to the radiologist’s tastes; and Agfa’s #CountOnUs initiative to support hospitals in the fight against COVID-19.

“More than ever, healthcare budgets are putting the pressure on to increase efficiency, while quality of care has to meet constantly stricter standards. At ECR 2021, we have the opportunity to show customers and the industry how we are delivering on our vision and promise to transform radiology, by bringing intelligent and definitive answers. Our systems are developing during their life cycle within completely new dimensions, and are designed to assist radiographers, radiologists and imaging departments to perform at their very best,” said Georges Espada, Radiography Solution Business group leader of Agfa.
