Agfa announced today, that Full-service healthcare network Hancock Health, in Greenfield, Indiana has purchased a DR 800 multi-purpose digital imaging room. With its MUSICA image quality, potential for lower dose and innovative, flexible design, the DR 800 supports the imaging and efficiency needs of this expanding healthcare provider. Hancock Health serves Indiana’s Hancock County and surrounding areas, through the Hancock Regional Hospital and more than 20 other healthcare facilities.
“The DR 800 meets our very specific needs: much lower dose even with a higher frame rate, fluoroscopy imaging without a separate R/F room, and easy use with our advanced mobile surgical chairs. The installation by Agfa and RSI went smoothly and seamlessly,” comments Lisa Wood, R.T. (R)(MR)(CT)CRA, Imaging Director of Hancock Health.
“We appreciate this opportunity to work with Hancock Health and with our long-time and trusted partner Radiation Services of Indiana, to meet the digital imaging needs of this healthcare network. The innovative design of the DR 800 and our industry-leading MUSICA image processing software provide excellent image quality, a potential dose reduction of up to 60%*, and outstanding efficiency gains for this important, expanding health system in Indiana,” says Jared Houk, Agfa’s Senior Vice President, Radiology Solutions, North America.
