At RSNA2021 Innovation theater, Jeroen Cant, Phd, Research Leader at Agfa Radiology Solutions, presented the Power of MUSICA.
In his presentation, Jeroen talks about our findings in some initial clinical studies, applying the power of MUSICA to CT images. CT scans which were post-processed by MUSICA have been presented to radiologists. The effect of eliminating the need to read the scans in different windows has been evaluated, and promising applications were found in two clinical use cases: fast poly trauma evaluation, and lesion detection in oncology for chest and abdomen.
Step into the future
with MUSICA™ Workstation Upgrade
Upgrade available for the complete
Agfa CR/DR portfolio.
The impact that less-than-ideal image quality can have on your department is significant. This is why image quality ranks among the most important KPI’s when selecting an X-ray system. MUSICA‘s patented Fractional Multiscale Processing technology provides excellent image quality compared to standard image processing.
First Time Right
Don’t struggle with image quality! MUSICA™ processes images perfectly, every time regardless of dose, technique, staff differences, patient size or condition. Exquisite image quality for neonatal to bariatric patients.
Intelligent tools for your
Digital Radiography workflow
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.
DOSE REDUCTION *
(*) 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.

MUSICA™ GOES DYNAMIC
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!
High-speed Digital Tomosynthesis
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’.”
Piet Vuylsteke PhD, Senior Researcher, Agfa
“The image quality is exceptional”
“At busy Logan Hospital, MUSICA and the DR 600 are keeping the imaging workflow smooth and efficient, while meeting the quality and dose reduction needs for patients and staff.”
“The fact that we don’t need to adjust the images has a lot of advantages: image quality, workflow, efficiency… we save a lot of time.”
“And we are also getting a consistent appearance to our images, which is important for referrers and clinicians.”
“It’s truly incredible the level of detail that the latest generation of MUSICA provides”
“We get amazing details effortlessly.”
“MUSICA image processing is so sharp, so much sharper than people are used to! You can identify things you just couldn’t see before.”
Bradley Drever, Area Manager, Dr. Jones & Partners clinic, Calvary Wakefield Hospital, Adelaide, Australia
“MUSICA offers a proper balance between the contrasts, with a better preservation of low contrast details next to high contrast structures.”
