Agfa announces today that it has received Frost & Sullivan’s 2019 award for New Product Innovation Leader in the Global Multipurpose Digital Radiography Systems Market. The award further highlights the value proposition of Agfa’s DR systems, which “revolves around maximizing patient care quality and safety, while still optimizing total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI)”.

Previously, Frost & Sullivan recognized the strong overall performance of Agfa’s comprehensive DR portfolio with the North American Product Leadership Award for Digital Radiography, in 2016.

“We are delighted to again be recognized by Frost & Sullivan not only for our DR solutions, but also for our customer-driven development approach and our commitment to delivering value and performance,” comments Georges Espada, Head of Business Unit CR & DR at Agfa. “The DR 800* is a clear result of this approach. We like to use the analogy of a Swiss army knife to describe it: it is adept at doing any procedure without compromising quality. Hospitals can use the DR 800 X-ray room all day long for different procedures; for instance, fluoroscopy in the mornings, radiographic work at nighttime, and, in the afternoon, procedures requiring a sterile field such as biopsies or speech pathologist studies.”
