Agfa received FDA clearance for its DX-M digitizer with needle-based detectors for use in mammography and general radiography. It features the firm’s MUSICA2 advanced image processing software, three image resolution modes (50 μm pixel pitch (20 pixels/mm), 100 μm pixel pitch (10 pixels/mm) and 150 μm pixel pitch (6.7 pixels/mm)), a “drop-and-go buffer” for cassettes so you don’t have to wait for the digitization, and a number of other features that improve workflow.
The system can support both needle-based detector cassettes and standard phosphor plate cassettes, and the two types are colored differently to eliminate confusion.
