Agfa HealthCare said it will introduce a new version of its Musica workstation at the 2018 RSNA meeting in Chicago.

Designed to serve as the "nerve center" of the imaging environment, the Musica workstation provides a single interface for digital radiography (DR) and computed radiography (CR) general radiography, fluoroscopy, mammography, and full-leg/full-spine (FLFS) imaging, according to the vendor. Agfa has included dedicated exam protocols for dynamic imaging, as well as dedicated tools optimized for screening or diagnostic mammography workflow. Meanwhile, FLFS stitching provides a seamless body view with minimal need for manual interactions, Agfa said. Mammography capability is not yet available in the U.S., however

The Musica workstation also features Agfa's traditional Musica image processing software for Agfa CR and DR systems. In addition, it meets international standard exposure index measurements and also supports the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Radiation Exposure Monitoring profile, the company said. This allows the software to send structured dose reports directly to a PACS or to dose-monitoring software.

In addition, the workstation can be connected to the RIS and PACS, enabling many tasks to be automated, according to Agfa.
