Agfa HealthCare announced the availability of its newest Direct Radiography (DR) detector, the DX-D 35C, an 11- by 14-inch sized wireless panel. Orthopaedic imaging can particularly benefit from the high spatial resolution for detail, and the excellent dose quantum efficiency (DQE) for potential dose reduction offered by this small DR panel.

The detector uses a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator with twice the DQE of gadolinium-based detector technologies and delivers the potential for lower dose.

In addition to image quality benefits, the system immediately captures and transmits the image to the workstation, increasing efficiency for the technologist, particularly in portable environments where it is intended for most frequent use.
