Signature Brockton Hospital has ordered a second Agfa HealthCare DX-D 600 to support its digital x-ray needs.

The Brockton, Mass., hospital first installed Agfa HealthCare's DX-D 600 DR system in a wireless room at one of its outpatient facilities. The system is used for a wide range of imaging exams from pediatrics to orthopaedics, nursing home patients, walk-in patients and family practice, according to Mortsel, Belgium-based Agfa.

Signature Brockton has purchased a second DX-D 600 for its semi-automatic room located in an additional outpatient facility currently under construction.

DX-D 600 includes a touch screen control panel at the tube head, generator control and image preview on a single NX monitor, grid sensing for both table and wall stand, solid state AEC (Automatic Exposure Control), exposure monitoring reports and LED lighting.
