- High image quality, empowered by MUSICA2 and dedicated dental intra-oral image plates.
- Flexible intra-oral image plates available in all sizes, to reflect large range of animal sizes.
Agfa HealthCare announces today that it has launched a new intra-oral dental option for veterinary practices, to be used with its successful, compact CR 30-X computed radiography (CR) solution. With the addition of this unique feature, the CR 30-X allows mixed veterinary use of intra-oral dental and general radiology applications.
Supports growing need for improving animal dental health
The new intra-oral dental option answers a growing need amongst animal healthcare practitioners for solutions to address gum and tooth disorders. Gum disease is the most frequently diagnosed health problem for pets; a dental exam is the first step towards preventing this disease.
The flexible intra-oral image plates enhance the animal's comfort, and come in all standard sizes to cover the wide animal dental size range. There is very little additional investment for existing users of the CR 30-X: just one cassette and a set of the dedicated dental image plates.
A versatile, high-quality imaging solution for veterinary clinics
The versatile CR 30-X has proven very useful in animal care: of the approximately 14,000 installed units around the world, some 2,000 have been sold to veterinary clinics and private practices. The solution is empowered with MUSICA2 gold-standard image processing software and the NX workstation. MUSICA2 analyzes each image and automatically applies the appropriate image enhancement parameters independent of the exam type, while the NX workstation provides very fast image acquisition and a smooth workflow.
Animal healthcare practices benefit from the solution's very high image quality and improved efficiency, thanks to the speed of image availability, the elimination of the need for retakes and the ability to share images across sites and with specialist veterinarians.
Dedicated and unique solution for veterinary practices
"We are pleased with the launch of the veterinary intra-oral dental option for the CR 30-X," comments Dirk Debusscher, Vice President Imaging at Agfa HealthCare. "It offers our veterinarian customers in animal clinics and private practices a unique solution for both their general and their dental exams. It also demonstrates our continued focus on developing dedicated solutions for this important customer group."
The intra-oral dental option has already been tested in several veterinary locations across the UK, Germany and Belgium.
