Agfa has published a white paper that demonstrates the clinical value of digital tomosynthesis (DTS) in productivity-oriented clinical environments. The paper includes several musculoskeletal cases with indications, imaging examples, and the added value propositions of digital tomosynthesis.

Agfa‘s digital tomosynthesis solution can add clinical value in a wide range of domains, including orthopedics (for the detection of microfractures, weight bearing exams, etc.), pulmonology (nodules) and urology. By combining the advantages of multi-slice reconstruction with the low dose and fast workflow of general radiography, it delivers meaningful answers that help improve the patient’s experience and outcome.

“Agfa’s digital tomosynthesis solution turns hidden depths into meaningful answers, using patented tomosynthesis algorithms that overcome the traditionally slow iterative reconstruction process” describes Georges Espada, Head of BU CR/DR at Agfa. “Digital tomosynthesis is available with the DR 600 and DR 800 direct radiography solutions, empowered by MUSICA. Used with these solutions, it supports a smooth and efficient radiography workflow, to enhance the patient’s care, while improving the productivity of the imaging environment.”
