At ECR 2023, Agfa HealthCare (Mortsel, Belgium) is demonstrating how innovations in Enterprise Imaging 8.2 – the latest release of the platform – can support radiologists to stay productive, focused, and at the top of their craft. At the Agfa HealthCare booth, visitors to ECR 2023 can connect with the company’s specialists and discover how new features, workflows and modules in Enterprise Imaging let clinicians focus on helping people.

Agfa is highlighting Shared Reading Workflow that empowers radiologists to be more collaborative and consultative by balancing their workloads, synchronizing their task lists, and optimizing their time management with intelligent distribution of diagnostic reporting tasks across the hospital network, across independent Enterprise Imaging clusters. Agfa is demonstrating XERO® Workflow for clinicians that enriches clinical activities by putting images and reports at the clinician’s fingertips in a way that matches their specific workflow needs. XERO® Workflow allows clinicians to monitor the status of requested exams enabled with a fully web-based application. Clinicians have the right information to make decisions more quickly, and to meet timely patient-care requirements.

Also being highlighted at ECR 2023 is Agfa’s Precision Reporting that enables consistency and structured communication of reports between radiologists and clinicians to enhance patient-care decision making, with innovative structured reporting. Radiologists can use pre-defined report templates based on ACR BI-RADS® and ACR PI-RADS®, as well as the new OB-GYN module for fetal reporting and data system. In addition, Agfa is highlighting Teach and Research that enhances diagnostic confidence with the easy creation and curation of reference exams for teaching and research. It facilitates scientific research, clinical trials or collaboration with AI vendors.

Agfa is demonstrating Multimedia Gateway that connects images and videos from departments with non-standardized image and video sources, such as videos from surgery or dermatology photos, to the Enterprise Imaging ecosystem and thus enriches the patient’s imaging history. Visitors can also experience RUBEE® for AI which adapts the flow of augmented intelligence in radiologists’ favor for triage, workflow orchestration, advanced visualization, smart hanging protocols and precision reporting, with seamlessly embedded, carefully selected and curated AI packages: Breast AI & Breast AI Analysis, CT Lung AI, Chest X-Ray AI Visualization, and Chest AI Analysis. Also being showcased at ECR 2023 is Agfa’s Molecular Imaging which makes it easier for radiologists and their colleagues throughout the hospital to follow up on patient care for oncology and other pathologies. With embedded PET, SPECT, CT and MR hybrid imaging and fusion tools, as well as easy access to all other imaging studies, clinicians have a fast and streamlined workflow in a unified reporting environment.

“Radiologists today are facing dual pressure points: the constant demand to improve efficiency plus ever-increasing amounts of incoming information, thanks in part to advancing medical innovations,” said Roberto Anello, Regional President Northern Europe for Agfa HealthCare. “We are empowering radiologists with tools and workflows that enable them to cut through the noise so they can stay focused on patient care and making accurate diagnoses – while supporting their own wellbeing. That’s life in flow.”

“Keeping clinicians in their flow has been the constant focus for Enterprise Imaging development and innovations,” added Andrea Polticchia, Regional President Southern Europe, for Agfa HealthCare. “Behind every new feature we asked a common question: how does this simplify radiologists’ lives and help them address specific challenges? Our goal is to maximize radiology efficiency and optimize flow by supporting confident decision-making, seamless integration, customizable workflows and cross-team collaboration.”
