MUSICA Catheter Processing enhances neonatal imaging and care
Study shows MUSICA‘s Fractional Multiscale Processing technology improves catheter visualization for newborns, improving reading quality and reducing potential risks of catheter placement
A study evaluating the ability of image processing to improve the visualization of central catheter tip positioning in newborns was recently published in BMC Medical Imaging. The authors found that Agfa’s MUSICA Catheter Processing with Fractional Multiscale Processing (FMP) technology significantly improved the perception of low contrast PICC line tips in digital chest X-rays, compared to standard image processing.
(*) Testing with board certified Radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors when used with MUSICA processing can provide dose reductions between 50 to 60% when compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems. Contact Agfa for more details.

“Image Quality and Dose Differences
Caused by Vendor-Specific Image Processing
of Neonatal Radiographs”
For more than 20 years, MUSICA has been helping you get more from your images, with market leading image quality at the lowest dose reasonably achievable and smooth, efficient workflow. Dynamic MUSICA adds enhanced noise suppression as well as superb brightness and density stabilization to dynamic imaging studies. With Dynamic MUSICA, fluoroscopic imaging is virtually reinvented!
MUSICA offers Tomosynthesis, for multi-slice reconstructed images. Our brand new, patented Tomosynthesis algorithms use iterative reconstruction, resulting in less dose, noise and artifacts. Agfa has overcome the usual slow iterative reconstruction process with algorithms that can reconstruct images very quickly: in less than one minute.
“With MUSICA, we get more details out of an image, and in a more comfortable way.”
“When we showed the radiologists the new version of MUSICA, they often got used to the new image presentation very quickly! ‘Once you appreciate that level of detail’, they said, ‘there’s no going back’.”
With Agfa’s comprehensive DR portfolio, you know that, any way you choose, you are making the smart choice. Because each of our DR solutions includes intelligent MUSICA image processing, for “first-time-right” images with the possibility to reduce dose. That’s intelligence you can count on.
MUSICA (Multi-Scale Image Contrast Amplification) image processing software enhances both image quality
and workflow for radiographers and radiologists. Our latest technology improvements provide more detail in
images and enable confident, comfortable reading. Experience the difference!
