The right Choice

Making the right choice for your facility can be challenging.
You want to be sure that you take the best decision as it has long-term implications, both practical and financial.


The easy way to go DR

With the compact yet robust DR 17e Digital Detector, general radiography facilities have an easy, versatile path to all the advantages of Direct Digital. With its full-field Automatic Exposure Detection (AED), the detector requires no electrical connection to the X-ray system, for seamless use with both conventional and mobile digital X-ray systems. This allows the hospital to maximize its existing X-ray equipment investments. The lightweight Rib Magnesium Alloy frame and wireless technology enhance the operator’s comfort, while improving exam flexibility. With its convenient 17×17-inch size and robust, aesthetically pleasing design, the DR 17e is ideal for all Genrad examinations.


The DR 17e is an integral part of an Agfa HealthCare Instant DR solution, which includes the NX image acquisition software with MUSICA processing and the detector. These cassette-less digital solutions provide a range of workflow benefits that improve productivity and speed up exam time, improving the delivery of patient care and comfort. Both wireless and wired configurations are possible. Without the need to change cassettes, retakes can be made more quickly, and the number of images is no longer limited by cassette availability. Completing the workflow, images can be sent more speedily to a PACS or imager in DICOM format.

Protect your investment

Accidents can happen. Protect your portable DR detector from accidental damage with our DR Detector Care Program. For the solid confidence of knowing it’s always there, where and when you need it.

DR Detector Care Program

The DR Detector Care Program covers accidents such as drops and liquid damages caused by the trained user.

Once Agfa has determined that the damaged detector cannot be repaired on-site, it will be replaced with a working unit through an accelerated process, to maximize your system uptime.

Depending on the service package, you will pay a minimum replacement fee. The DR Detector Care Program can be purchased at the point of sale or max 2 years after original sale, for a period of up to five years.

The diagnosis is in the detail

For decades, Agfa’s MUSICA software has been taking image processing to the next level, delivering digital radiography image processing software that automatically produces optimized images.

That’s why we call it the “gold standard”.
