US FDA clears DR 800 imaging system

April 9, 2019 0 By FM

Agfa NV has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its DR 800 multipurpose imaging system with tomosynthesis.

Tomosynthesis is used to synthesize tomographic slices from a single tomographic sweep.

The DR 800 includes Agfa’s tomosynthesis algorithms for iterative reconstruction, which deliver images with less noise and fewer artefacts. These algorithms also enable faster image reconstruction overcoming the usual slow iterative reconstruction process.

The DR 800 comes standard with Dynamic MUSICA, for both static and dynamic images. This image processing software enhances noise suppression, offers superb brightness control, reduces veiling glare, and plays a significant role in enabling potential dose reduction.

The MUSICA Digital TomoSynthesis software powers the tomosynthesis reconstruction, automatically presenting images with optimal contrast and providing consistent image quality across the individual slices and images.
