This newest member of Agfa’s DR portfolio offers key assistance during the radiology routine, which has proven to be very important during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as beyond. The SmartXR portfolio brings intelligence to DR equipment at the point of care. Integrated sensors and cameras combined with powerful AI software, 3D machine vision, deep learning and machine intelligence, support the radiographer with first-time-right image acquisition. By reducing retakes, this speeds up the radiology workflow, and optimizes utilization and equipment costs.

Along with fewer retakes, SmartXR offers other advantages for getting the best image with the lowest dose reasonably achievable. It provides recommendations on dose tailored to the patient, but also ensures greater consistency in positioning, exposure and AEC settings. Reducing variability enables more confident comparison of current and prior images, even when different radiographers are making the images. SmartXR includes a range of tools designed to support radiographers intelligently such as SmartAlign, SmartPositioning, SmartDose and SmartRotate. The SmartXR tools are currently available to upgrade the DR 600 high-productivity, fully automated X-ray room and the DR 100s high-productivity, ergonomic, mobile DR imaging solution, for comfortable bedside imaging.

“Last year we launched the DR 100s: a new generation in mobile DR,” said Georges Espada, Radiography Solutions Business Group Leader at Agfa. “This year, we continue to deliver on our promise and our vision to transform radiology, by bringing intelligent and definitive answers to patients, with SmartXR. It offers a new kind of smart care, that turns the potential of AI into real advantages for digital radiography: enhanced clinical confidence, efficiency and productivity, and the delivery of excellent patient care.”
