Agfa HealthCare this week introduced the CR (computed radiography) Radiotherapy system, a digital simulation and portal imaging system for both low and high dose applications that handles both low and high energy x-rays.
The CR Radiotherapy system captures electronic images in a radiotherapy environment using CR technology. Digital CR images, in comparison to conventional film, offer post-processing image enhancement resulting in higher contrast images within radiotherapy application areas that currently use radiographic imaging.
The CR Radiotherapy system, which is available with Agfa's recently launched CR 25.0, is capable of serving multiple rooms simultaneously, Agfa said. It complements, and can replace, the use of an Electronic Portal Imaging Device (EPID) system by offering a broader radiation field and image quality that equals that of EPID systems, but at higher resolution.
