    Agfa Computed Radiography (CR) Digitizers


    • [click] Radiological Imaging Technology (brief)
    Advantages of CR versus Conventional Radiography

    Despite being the oldest of medical imaging modalities, traditional projection radiography accounts for roughly 60 to 70% of all radiology procedures are diagnostic screen-film X-ray exams. CR systems use photostimulable phosphor imaging plates housed inside of cassettes, which must be taken to a separate CR reader to be scanned and form the digital image. DR images are acquired by a flat panel detector and then immediately digitized. The main advantage of CR and DR in a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) environment over traditional film-based systems is the separation of image capture, processing, storage, and display, allowing for the individual optimization of each of these steps. The ability to convert these exams into a digital format and store them in a PACS system results in increased efficiencies and streamlined workflow. Any move to digital can positively impact facilities and operations, helping to maximize productivity and patient throughput.

    Many institutions are trying to increase the productivity of the radiology department. The workflow of a film-based department is quite inefficient compared with that of a filmless and paperless department. Hence efforts were made to redesigning the workflow to utilize CR with the PACS integrated with the hospital/radiology information system (HIS/RIS) to facilitate the automated electronic transport of images and patient medical records. They were able to eliminate say 50 steps from the film-based workflow, requiring reduced staff members for the entire process.

    There is continual pressure on the radiology department to increase its productivity. Two important links to productivity in the computed/digital radiography (CR/DR) workflow chain are the post-processing step by technologists and the primary diagnosis step by radiologists, who may apply additional image enhancements to aid them in diagnosis. With the large matrix size of CR and DR images and the computational complexity of these algorithms, it has been challenging to provide interactive image enhancement, particularly on full-resolution images. AGFA’S multiscale image contrast amplification (MUSICA) are typical CR/DR enhancement algorithms, each with several adjustable input parameters. These algorithms tackle the problem of the diagnostically relevant dynamic range of a radiograph being too large to be displayed with good contrast.

    Advantages of CR:

    a) Decreased Costs

    CR uses imaging plates instead of X-ray film. These imaging plates can be re-used 15,000 to 40,000 times, eliminating the need for X-ray film and film processing.

    c) Improved Post-Processing Efficiency

    Because CR X-ray exposures are digital, they can be post-processed and modified, forwarded via data networks, and archived digitally.

    d) More Information in one Image

    The imaging plate’s dynamic range enables most diagnostic information to be displayed in a single exposure.

    d) Consistent High-Quality Imaging

    The advanced imaging plate technology results in consistent, high-quality images.

    What is Computed Radiography (CR)?

    CR is a cost-effective solution to move from analog to digital imaging. With CR, the transition to digital is completed by installing CR readers and replacing X-ray cassettes (which use X-ray film) with CR cassettes (which use imaging plates). The imaging plates are exposed and inserted into the CR reader. The reader scans the plates, digitally displays the image on the workstation, and erases the imaging plate for reuse.

    A complete range of digitizers is offered for computed radiography (CR), so you are sure to find the one that suits your throughput needs, fits your centralized or decentralized workflow, can grow and adapt to your changing environment, and offers an exceptional price/performance ratio.

    Other than the absence of film and chemical processing, computed radiography, works very much like conventional film-screen radiology.

    Compared to conventional film-screen capture, CR technology can speed image availability, reduce retakes and duplication costs, and boost workflow productivity. CR also offers more options for displaying, sharing and storing images. Efficiency - better workflow and greater productivity - remains a top priority for healthcare providers.

    Combining standard phosphor plates and needle-based detectors

    The DX-G and DX-M digitizers are the only ones on the market that have the potential to mix both standard phosphor plates and needle-based detectors. This means you can keep using your existing X-ray systems, and move smoothly from analog to digital without additional expenditure. What's more, the DX-M offers all this, with the high-level quality demanded by mammography(only available outside US and Canada).

    DirectriX detector technology:precision image quality and potential dose reduction

    DX-M includes an innovative and exclusive DirectriX needle-based detector technology. With the higher Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE) you get benefit from a combination of high image quality and the potential for reduction in patient X-ray dose. While this is especially critical in neonatal and pediatrics, it is certainly welcome for all your patients!

    Workflow wonders

    With CR workflow, improvements begin at the point a technologist enters patient information into the system. From then on, patient information is captured electronically and available to access with touch of the screen or keyboard. The number of steps during an exam is reduced because the information is captured and there is no film to physically process, retrieve, review, and deliver.

    The introduction of Fuji's FCR Pocket ID PDA eliminates steps in a technologist's workflow by permitting him or her to download patient information from the workstation and then move throughout the facility to perform exams.

    For a lead technologist or radiologist, reading reports no longer means handling stacks of film. Like a radiology manager or medical physicist, he or she can sit at a desk to review the exam. From there, the reports are sent electronically to practitioners — eliminating the need for more handling and a courier service.

    The storage of CR images is one of the final workflow improvements. CR systems integrate with PACS allowing for electronic storage of files. Hooper says he likes the efficiency and ease of storing CR images in their PACS at UVA Health System.

    With decentralization and the ability to capture the patient information and exam at point-of-care, the workflow is more manageable than if the patient has to be moved around the hospital. The exam is done where it is needed, saving time and energy, and improving workflow.

    The centralization of the electronic management for decentralized CR imaging provides an efficient way to communicate information. Running to different rooms, floors, and buildings is replaced by gathering and transmitting information from a single workstation.

    Compact Digitizers and their performant

    The CR family of digitizers offers you exceptional convenience for a broad range of applications. If you're looking for aversatile, small-footprint digitizer for your decentralized CR environment, the 35-X offer just what you need. And if you need a high-throughput, centralized digitizer, then the CR 85-X may fit the bill. Whichever one you pick, you can be sure it will give you high quality and throughput, even in limited spaces.

    Because of the portability and decentralization of CR units, patients do not necessarily have to move throughout a facility for radiology exams. A CR system in an emergency room area not only means a quicker diagnosis during a critical time, it also means less stress on the patient without having to leave the area.

    Agfa HealthCare recently presented its entire Computed Radiography (CR) solutions family range at Radiological Society of North America (RSNA: is the platform for world firsts: New products and solutions, not just for the imaging sector, attracted interest from physicians and decision makers), composed of four leading solutions all of which have been installed around the world: a desktop, compact and convenient CR solution which is easy to install, use and maintain, ideal for decentralized environments; a highly versatile digitizer specially designed for decentralized CR environments and with a small footprint; a multi-user digitizer, featuring a unique 10 cassette drop-and-go buffer that eliminates waiting times and maximizes productivity; a groundbreaking CR system that has created a new threshold in CR. It fills the gap in the current range of Digital Radiography solutions, by providing a unique combination of image quality, potential for dosereduction, speed and flexibility that exceeds traditional CR solutions.

    (5) DX-S for Digital Radiography

    Precision image quality and reduced X-ray dose

    - DirectriX

    DirectriX needle-based detector technology uses a crystal phosphor that allows higher packing density and layer thickness than is offered by powder phosphor when used in a binding material. In addition, the crystal phosphor’s reduced light spread increases sharpness. As a result, the detector’s X-ray absorption and conversion efficiencies are greater, leading to signifi cant patient X-ray dose reduction. High speed imaging - Scanhead Scanhead technology enables high resolution scanning of the DirectriX detector with a scanning resolution equal to 50 ¼m (20 pixel/mm). This line-to-line scanning provides an accelerated read-out resulting in a fast preview image and a high cassette throughput of up to 130 cassettes per hour. Furthermore, unlike point-to-point scanning, the very compact design integrates stimulation and light collection into one, convenient Scanhead module.

    Flexible, compact, cassette-based design : DX-S has a compact, cassette-based design that makes it the flexible solution for decentralized environments and in-room use. The easy arrangement of the DX-S cassette results in a perfect fi t between the anatomy and the positioning, and reduces the time spent posing patients for diffi cult exams. Thanks to the portability of the cassettes, DX-S is the ideal application in places such as neonatal intensive care. At the same time, the digitizer covers a wide range of diffi cult exams. This combination of portability and flexibility make the DX-S an excellent digitizer for GenRad, Paediatrics and Emergency use.

    Patient proximity

    By locating the DX-S digitizer in examination rooms, technologists are able to remain with their patients during image acquisition, processing and quality control, for a higher patient satisfaction, especially for children. Additionally, the technologist benefi ts from the efficient and practical usage, for a better time management.

    DX-Si: Integration for better interoperability

    The DX-S interfaces with both the NX workstation and the DX-Si X-ray system to create Agfa HealthCare’s integrated digital radiography solution: DX-Si. DX-Si provides state of-the-art image quality, versatility, integration, high throughput, patient proximity and a solid return on investment. The result is the high image quality, greater workflow efficiency and improved patient care healthcare facilities want.

    The versatile DX-Si X-ray system can handle a very comprehensive range of X-ray exams, from general radiography to emergencies and paediatrics. At the same time, its flexibility allows the creation of a system configuration to handle almost any facility’s specific diagnostic needs. It can be tailored with a radiographic table and wall stand, a radiographic table only or a wall stand only.

    Patient comfort is on everybody’s mind, and the DX-Si X-ray system’s slim, lightweight detector makes positioning quick and easy, even for the most difficult exams, with less-mobile patients, for example.

    Radiographers will also appreciate the simple, ergonomic design, which allows one-hand operation of the system. The integration of the X-ray system with the NX workstation translates into improved overall workflow efficiency.

    Ceiling suspension: ultimate ease of operation

    The overhead tube crane suspended from the ceiling operates with a touch sensor keypad, for complete flexibility, whatever image is needed. It can be operated with just one hand and lowered a full 1500 mm. The compact, telescopic design allows it to be installed even on low ceilings. It offers both automatic or manual tracking and collimation.

    Radiographic table: accessibility for all patients

    With its foot-operated brakes and motorized height adjustment, the DX-Si X-ray system’s radiographic table leaves the radiographer’s hands free for cassette handling and patient positioning. Its narrow table base provides excellent accessibility for all patients, including children and severly injured patients. The table bucky can be operated with one hand and allows easy removal of the grid.

    Tiltable wall stand: versatile and comfortable operation in both upright and prone position

    The DX-Si X-ray system’s wall stand bucky can tilt from +90º to -20º. The vertical travel range extends from 350 mm to 1900 mm above the floor level. This considerable movement provides the radiographer with remarkable versatility for any exam positioning. The wall stand also offers grid and AEC, as well as cassette size sensing, all for a more efficient operation.

    Integration with the NX workstation: a more efficient workflow

    Within the DX-Si solution, the DX-Si X-ray system interfaces with Agfa HealthCare’s NX workstation, for an integrated workflow. When a specific type of exam is selected, the appropriate X-ray settings are automatically transferred and displayed on the X-ray generator console. NX automatically adds the exposure settings used to the digital image file, and communicates seamlessly with PACS, HIS and RIS, eliminating manual data entry and typographical errors.

    How can the DX-Si with the examination be deployed for efficient workflow, let us assume the trauma unit in the hospital? A typical Accident & Emergency (A & E) Department which is fully process-orientated and divided into four areas: recovery room for trauma patients, emergency area for responsive patients, an area specifically for follow-up examinations, and the plaster cast room. Dividing the workflow into acute and follow-up cases allows emergency patients to be seen faster because there is no overlap with less urgent, non-emergency studies. Waiting times are virtually eliminated.

    A&E Department earlier studies showed by precisely timing of its patient flow, the results showed that about 80% of waiting time was associated with obtaining x-rays, which are crucial in planning further patient care.

    Solution: use DX-Si in combination with the bed.

    Waiting times have been cut more than 50 percent, resulting in less stress for the technologists; also noted was a significant increase in overall patient care. There is no need for staff to unnecessarily hurry back and forth. This all leads to a noticeable reduction in stress.

    Finally, the radiologists themselves benefit from the new digital system thanks to its MUSICA2 image processing software that automatically adjusts density and contrast to optimize the anatomic detail being studied, providing excellent visualization. Physicians and staff spend less time manipulating images by hand, which streamlines workflows while increasing diagnostic confidence. Increased productivity results in faster patient turn-around. And thanks to the software’s new processing algorithms, the balanced presentation of bones and soft tissue within an image allows different studies to be completed using one image.
