Balancing speed and resolution

With the CR 12-X, the user can choose to adjust speed and resolution depending on the needs of the exam. The user can easily overwrite the default settings for each exam, depending on the specific speed/quality priorities, study by study.

Convenient and fast workflow

The CR 12-X works in conjunction with NX, Agfa HealthCare’s image identification and quality control tool, for a highly efficient and optimized, yet customizable, radiology workflow.

It comes with Agfa HealthCare’s gold-standard MUSICA² software, which automatically handles all calibration and image processing, independently of body part and dose, optimizing the final image quality without the need for any human intervention or special training.

Robust yet easy to install and maintain

Installing the CR 12-X is fast and easy. Special LED technology in the erasure unit means low power consumption. With its ‘one screwdriver’ concept and modular, component-based design, maintenance is faster, easier and more cost-effective, as well. Consequently, set up costs are lower and installation simpler.

Horizontal cassette insertion prevents dust and dirt from being introduced during normal operation.

Fits in small spaces and is suited for mobile applications

With its table-top size, the CR 12-X digitizer can be placed easily at any location, no matter how small, and was designed with ease of use in mind. The CR 12-X can also be fitted into cars, vans, trucks and other mobile facilities, for mobile applications. Due to the low power consumption, connection to battery can be easily realized.

Networking capabilities deliver seamless integration

The CR 12-X is fully DICOM-compliant, to easily integrate with other solution elements; we recommend combining it with Agfa HealthCare’s SE software suite for a complete softcopy solution, or with the DRYSTAR 5302 imager for a hardcopy solution.
