Why empower your x-ray department with DR Retrofit?
An affordable upgrade to DR and leveraging of your investment for the
Excellent MUSICA DR image quality
Cassette-less DR workflow
Dose reduction potential through Cesium Iodide (CsI) wireless
Easy to install and service
Wireless detectors that are ideal for mobile use
Maximize your existing investments
With Agfa’s vendor neutral DR Retrofit solutions, you can easily upgrade your existing X-ray
modality to direct radiography (DR) while protecting your current investment. From X-ray rooms
to mobile analog units, it only takes a moment to go DR!
Migrating to DR
technology gives you all the benefits that immediate, highquality images provide. But replacing your
existing equipment is costly. With DR Retrofit, you have a smart, seamless and budget-friendly path
to capitalize on the advantages of going DR.
Both your mobile and stationary X-ray systems –
including standard Bucky tables, floor stands and neonatal incubator trays – can become
high-productivity DR systems, giving you a cost-effective way to implement DR technology throughout

No compromises high image quality at a lower dose
The DR Retrofit is all about versatility: you decide which wireless detector – Cesium Iodide (CsI) or
Gadolinium Oxy-Sulphide (GOS) – best meets your exam and budget requirements.
Both detectors give you exquisite image quality with our industry leading MUSICA
image processing software, and CsI detectors offer the potential for radiation dose reductions of 50 to
60 percent depending on conditions*.
What’s more, the high Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE),
even at low dose and high resolution, makes these detectors especially suited for examinations where
dose reduction matters most, for example pediatrics and neonatology.
The Dose Monitoring tool
provides the ongoing exposure monitoring that is key to controlling dose. Dose Area Product (DAP) meters
are also available as options.
Moreover DR Retrofit solution comes with our automatic,
intelligent, body part-independent MUSICA image processing, which has been specially adapted and tuned
to enhance DR image quality.
DR where you are: Ultra-mobility
The DR Retrofit delivers ultra-mobility for your mobile X-ray units: the AED
technology and standard wireless communication can reduce the most basic configuration to just a DR
detector and a laptop, while the transportable MUSICA DR suitcase makes transporting a breeze.

"We could immediately implement DR,
without replacing our existing equipment. We can also add digital detectors: in the
future, we would like to have one for each bucky.”
“We get amazing details effortlessly.”
MUSICA image processing is so sharp, so much sharper than people are
used to! You can identify things you just couldn’t see before.

“Our goal was to improve productivity and
profitability. It is important for us to invest in technology, but we must see a return
on that investment.”
With Agfa’s comprehensive DR portfolio, you know that, any way you choose, you are
making the smart choice. Because each of our DR solutions includes intelligent MUSICA
image processing, for “first-time-right” images with the possibility to reduce dose.
That’s intelligence you can count on.
The diagnosis is in the detail
For decades, Agfa’s MUSICA software has been taking image processing to the next level,
delivering digital radiography image processing software that automatically produces
That’s why we call it the “gold standard”.
Dose Management is Everyone's Business
Agfa’s digital radiography solutions are designed to deliver the optimum balance between low
radiation dose and high image quality while providing the tools to monitor the patient
* Testing with board certified Radiologists has determined that
Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors when used with MUSICA processing
can provide dose reductions between 50 to 60% when compared to traditional Barium Fluoro
Bromide CR systems. Contact Agfa for more details.
