At the beginning of January 2021, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona, Spain, added two mobile DR 100s direct radiography (DR) systems to its diagnostic imaging equipment portfolio. A long-time Agfa customer, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu also has three DX-M computed radiography (CR) systems, suitable for mammography, and a high-performance DR 800 multi-purpose imaging solution.
“Our key reasons for choosing Agfa included the excellent quality of chest images and the ability to use a low radiation dose, which is so important for a hospital like ours with a pediatric focus,” says Dr. Teresa Maristany, Chief Radiologist of Hospital Sant Joan de Déu. “And as our radiography staff were already familiar with Agfa’s digital radiography systems, they were quickly up and running with the DR 100s units.”
“We are very pleased that the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu has expanded its portfolio of Agfa imaging solutions with our groundbreaking DR 100s,” says Felipe Navarro, Sales Manager Radiology Iberia, of Agfa. “This hospital is not only committed to quality, respect, responsibility and spirituality, but also it promotes innovation. The DR 100s fits its requirements perfectly, and is designed to help radiographers and radiologists perform at their very best.”
