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.

The MUSICA Scale

Agfa processing around the world


(*) 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.

High-speed 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.”

“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.”
