Agfa HealthCare (Mortsel, Belgium) launched its new VALORY digital radiography (DR) room at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting (November 23 – December 2, Chicago, USA).

VALORY delivers a simple design with functionality that goes far beyond the “basics”, bringing reliability, productivity and “first-time-right” imaging into reach for any hospital. VALORY is Agfa’s response to the increasing pressure on radiography imaging efficiency. It balances reliability and productivity in a modern, modular and easy-to-use design.

At RSNA 2021, Agfa also launched its digital subtraction angiography (DSA) functionality, bringing its intelligent, dynamic DR 800 room to its full potential as a single, complete, multi-purpose solution. The versatile DR 800 is the heart of ‘sustainable imaging’, enabling care providers to perform a full range of radiography and fluoroscopy exams, with one investment. It comes with Dynamic MUSICA image processing software, which can handle fluoroscopic images with the same high quality and low-dose features that have made MUSICA the ‘gold standard’ for radiology departments around the world. Dynamic MUSICA has now been enriched with DSA, which improves the diagnostic visualization of vascular structures in bony or dense soft tissue, by removing stationary anatomical background structures.

Other highlights included the trailblazing SmartXR artificial intelligence portfolio; the new Dura-line family of robust, reliable and cost-effective detectors; the groundbreaking DR 100s mobile solution; and the versatile DR 800, which supports general radiography, fluoroscopy and tomosynthesis, and also offers digital subtraction angiography. Agfa showcased the SmartXR Point-of-Care “intelligent assistant”. Smart tools cost-effectively add targeted AI-based features to Agfa’s DR solutions, for dose, alignment, patient positioning and more. The result is a smoother and more efficient daily imaging workflow, and more consistent images.

Integrated sensors and cameras combined with powerful AI software, 3D machine vision, deep learning and machine intelligence, assist the radiographer to maximize the imaging workflow while delivering exceptional images. The full SmartXR portfolio is available for Agfa’s mobile DR 100s and premium DR 600 room. Furthermore, the SmartRotate functionality is now available for all Agfa CR and DR systems. With SmartRotate, images are always presented ready for viewing, directly and automatically. SmartRotate speeds up the imaging workflow by reducing post-processing actions, while the consistent presentation of images in the PACS enables better comparison with priors.

“As we come together in person once more at RSNA 2021, we are delighted to have so much to share with our customers and visitors: from an entirely new solution, SmartXR technology and Dura-line detectors, to enhancements of our existing solutions, such as the addition of digital subtraction angiography to the DR 800. All of these advances, however, have a common aim: to put intelligent tools into the hands of radiology, in order to meet real needs on a day-to-day basis,” said Georges Espada, Global Head of Digital Radiography Business Unit of Agfa.
