Delivering on dose reduction promises

Zwanger-Pesiri, one of the largest non-hospital based radiology practices in the U.S. today, did not really believe the stories Agfa HealthCare was telling about its dose reduction capabilities and decided to set up a study to compare results. The study sought to determine if Agfa HealthCare’s DX-D 300 required less exposure and patient dose versus two other systems in use at Zwanger-Pesiri radiology. Results showed that, while the amount varied depending on the type of exam, the average dose on most exams was more than 40% lower with the Agfa HealthCare system, still providing high quality. The success of the study has led to the purchase of five more units.
