High image quality and throughput        The CR 30-X scans at a spatial resolution of 10 pixel/mm, then processes the image using MUSICA² - Agfa HealthCare's patented, market-leading intelligent image processing software. By scanning the phosphor plate at the full width of 43 cm, the CR 30-X provides both high quality and high throughput.       

The CR 30-X supports all common cassette formats.       

Low total cost of ownership        Installing the CR 30-X digitizer can be achieved in a single day. Its special LED technology in the erasure unit keeps the heat output and the power requirements lower, so that standard electrical outlets are sufficient. The lack of preliminary electrical work means the set-up cost is lower. And with its modular, component-based design, the CR 30-X digitizer offers faster, easier and more cost-effective maintenance.       

Facilitates convenient and fast workflow        The CR 30-X works in conjunction with Agfa HealthCare's NX - the CR's image identification and quality control workstation designed to enable users to complete effortlessly, and with minimal training, a complete digital X-ray exposure. In addition, the CR 30-X uses MUSICA intelligent image processing software to automatically optimize the final image quality without the need for human intervention.       

Designed to enable a seamlessly integrated digital workflow, the CR 30-X uses DICOM protocols for all steps in the digital workflow.                The CR 30-X can be used with following Agfa HealthCare products and services:       

  • CR MD 4.0T       
  • MUSICA 2       
  • NX       
  • SE
