The smallest patients are a big priority at Agfa. Children are more sensitive to radiation and its cumulative effects, this is why dose management is of particular importance for us. We design dedicated pediatric and neonatal digital radiography solutions to deliver the optimum balance between low radiation dose and high image quality.

Advanced technologies are making it happen. Dose-efficient Cesium detectors are available with both direct radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) systems. They can help to reduce dose for pediatric and neonatal applications up to 60%, depending on the examination and conditions.* Agfa’s patented MUSICA image processing software plays a role, too, providing excellent image quality and greater diagnostic confidence with low-dose pediatric images.

* Testing with board certified Radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors when used with MUSICA processing can provide dose reductions between 50 to 60% when compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems. Contact Agfa for more details.
