Your smallest patients are a big priority at Agfa HealthCare as children are more sensitive to radiation and its cumulative effects. Therefore, we design our dedicated pediatric and neonatal digital radiography solutions to deliver the optimum balance between low radiation dose and high image quality. Our dose-efficient Cesium detectors are available with both direct radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) systems. They can help you reduce dose for pediatric and neonatal applications up to 60 %, depending on the examination and conditions.* And our patented MUSICA image processing software plays a role, too, providing excellent image quality and greater diagnostic confidence with low-dose pediatric images.
