Agfa HealthCare Launches NX MUSICA2 Platinum and NX MUSICA2 Neonatal for Direct Radiography in North America, Highlighting Neonatal Applications
- NX MUSICA2 Platinum renders excellent bone and soft tissue detail customizable to specialty and patient age.
- NX MUSICA2 Neonatal provides outstanding detail for the demanding requirements of neonatal imaging.
- Both MUSICA2 products are designed to maximize radiographic detail and provide workflow efficiency.

Agfa HealthCare announces the North American launch of its NX MUSICA2 Platinum and NX MUSICA2 Neonatal, which take image processing to a new level by rendering excellent bone and soft tissue detail simultaneously in a single exposure. These Agfa HealthCare-exclusive offerings provide enhanced detail across the entire dynamic range of the image for improved contrast, sharpness and density preferred by radiology specialists.

Taking image processing to a new level
NX MUSICA2 Platinum provides fine-tuned chest, abdomen and musculoskeletal pre-sets for both adult and pediatric patients. Special image processing defaults can be automatically applied for up to four different pediatric age groups. Designed for these special applications, NX MUSICA2 Platinum delivers on the need of many large health care networks and university medical centers to have dedicated image processing that shows increased emphasis on soft tissue or bony structures depending on the exam type.

NX MUSICA2 Neonatal image processing includes algorithms tuned specifically for the neonatal patient, providing excellent contrast and detail without increasing noise--even on lower dose exams. With MUSICA2 Neonatal and MUSICA2 GenRad (General Radiology), physicians can quickly and easily fine-tune imaging perimeters for the overall patient population as well as their dose sensitive neonatal patients. Installation and set-up is simple; workflow is improved because all MUSICA2 image processing is fully automatic with Digital Radiography (DR) exposures. Technologists, radiologists and clinicians rarely, if ever, need to post process or window/level images to see all pertinent anatomy rendered in a single MUSICA2 image. This image quality and efficiency differentiates the technology, further emphasizing the position of NX MUSICA2 as the market leader for digital image processing.

Providing diagnostic confidence when it matters most
"Agfa HealthCare continues to raise the bar for image quality in radiology with new innovations in image processing. Our most recent advances in technology address the demanding field of pediatric and neonatal imaging with NX MUSICA2 Platinum and NX MUSICA2 Neonatal, giving diagnostic confidence when it matters the most," said Greg Cefalo, U.S. Digital Radiography Business Unit Manager, Agfa HealthCare.

"Especially in the neonatal environment where subtlety of image detail is important, enhanced features help detect minute daily changes to provide physicians with the confidence for urgent clinical decision-making. Agfa HealthCare's image processing algorithm used in NX MUSICA2 Neonatal is finely tuned to the special imaging needs of the neonate," said Cefalo. "For example, neonatal bones have lower subject contrast than adults or older pediatric bones, so NX MUSICA2 Neonatal enhances detail in the low-contrast neonatal bones without adding the additional unwanted noise that traditional image processing creates. These attributes, combined with comprehensive dose management tools, provide excellent image capture technology for radiology's most demanding newborn and premature patients."

NX MUSICA2 Platinum and NX MUSICA2 Neonatal for use with DR now offer Agfa HealthCare's best image processing with its most advanced image capture technology. North American facilities can now help drive dose management, improve clinical capabilities and optimize workflow for better delivery of patient care.
