Probably the Best Image Processing in the World

A truly intelligent solution, MUSICA consistently provides the high quality images needed to support the diagnosis, while saving both time and effort.

That’s why we call it the “gold-standard.”

Balanced presentation of both soft tissue and overlapping bone structures
Visualization of subtle details in the abdomen
True representation of orthopaedic implants with clear bone interfaces
High level of detail in the mediastinum
Sharp trabecular patterns and excellent detail in the bony cortex
Including Fluoroscopy and Tomosynthesis applications *
*Fluoroscopy is not available in Canada. Tomosynthesis not yet available in US/Canada

Dose Reduction*

Dose Reduction (*) 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.

MUSICA Goes Dynamic

For more than 20 years, MUSICA has been helping you get more from your images, with market leading image quality at the lowest dose reasonably achievable and smooth, efficient workflow. Dynamic MUSICA adds enhanced noise suppression as well as superb brightness and density stabilization to dynamic imaging studies. With Dynamic MUSICA, fluoroscopic imaging is virtually reinvented!

High-speed Tomosynthesis

MUSICA offers Tomosynthesis (WIP), for multi-slice reconstructed images. Our brand new, patented Tomosynthesis algorithms use iterative reconstruction, resulting in less dose, noise and artifacts. Agfa has overcome the usual slow iterative reconstruction process with algorithms that can reconstruct images very quickly: in less than one minute.



"The image quality is exceptional"

“At busy Logan Hospital, MUSICA and the DR 600 are keeping the imaging workflow smooth and efficient, while meeting the quality and dose reduction needs for patients and staff.”

“The fact that we don’t need to adjust the images has a lot of advantages: image quality, workflow, efficiency… we save a lot of time.”

“And we are also getting a consistent appearance to our images, which is important for referrers and clinicians.”

“With MUSICA, we get more details out of an image, and in a more comfortable way.”

“When we showed the radiologists the new version of MUSICA, they often got used to the new image presentation very quickly! ‘Once you appreciate that level of detail’, they said, ‘there’s no going back’.”

“It’s truly incredible the level of detail that the latest generation of MUSICA provides”

“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.
