Can the small focal spot be omitted for Direct Radiography?

By |2020-08-25T16:56:05+02:00August 25th, 2020|Categories: Digital Radiography, White papers/Scientific articles|

In daily clinical practice, using only the large focal spot has many potential advantages: simplifying workflow, but also – indirectly – having a positive impact on image quality and financial aspects. This study demonstrates that there is no significant difference in clinical image quality between large and small focal spot for several types of X ray [...]

#ECR2020: Digital Tomosynthesis on DR 800 and DR 600

By |2020-08-25T08:37:16+02:00July 16th, 2020|Categories: Digital Radiography, Exhibitions & Events, White papers/Scientific articles|

Despite a large array of publications and clinically-oriented investigations and studies indicating potential applications in various fields, digital tomosynthesis (DTS) has not yet realized its potential as a widely used clinical application. Apart from mammography, where digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is becoming increasingly well-established, DTS is acknowledged in the academic field, but seemingly less in clinical practice – [...]

Agfa white paper “Digital tomosynthesis – extending conventional 2D X-ray imaging into the next dimension” demonstrates clinical potential of the technology.
