Offering high throughput of up to 100 14 x 17” sheets/hour, unique multi-format architecture and sorting by modality function, DRYSTAR 5503 is a versatile partner capable of handling a diversity of printing tasks from different sources with speed and reliability.
The Direct Digital Imaging technology employed by DRYSTAR 5503 is not only fast and clean, it is also one of the best ways of translating the high-resolution capability of 508 ppi at a spot size of 50μm to a final image. AGFA HealthCare’s Direct Digital Imaging technology performs well beyond current industry standards, providing that every pixel in the image is fully software controlled for virtually flawless and consistent image quality. A significant reduction in wear and tear is due to an equally significant reduction in moving parts as a result of using Direct Digital Imaging technology.
DRYSTAR 5503 features multiple-format handling, with the three most popular media sizes and/or types permanently on-line. The imager is thus capable of delivering CT, MRI, DSA, digital R&F, CR and DR images at high speed onto different DRYSTAR DT2 media. The DRYSTAR 5503 comes with three input trays. Every input tray can use five different film formats, ranging from 8 x 10” to 14 x 17”, making the final image versatility of this stand-alone, small footprint unit remarkable. And what DRYSTAR 5503 gains in versatility, the user gains in convenience and time.
In order to increase efficiency and user-friendliness, DRYSTAR 5503 has a unique sorter function. This supports that whichever modality is being served, whichever print command is currently being handled, all tasks will be carried out and sorted, according to modality or patient record, if available. With DRYSTAR 5503, high traffic density input no longer means bottlenecks and slow-speed output at the imager, virtually eliminating log jams.
Through its intelligent matching of Direct Digital Imaging technology, media and imager, DRYSTAR 5503 is ideally suited to stand at the heart of an AGFA HealthCare integrated solution. Its leading-edge DRYSTAR DT2 media delivers excellent, diagnostic quality greyscale hardcopies. Because it is heat sensitive rather than light sensitive, DT2 offers the convenience of daylight loading. The dry imaging technology means no more wet processing, no darkroom, no complicated adjustments or cleaning procedure, and no chemical disposal costs. DRYSTAR DT2 media can be used in all formats: 8 x 10”, 10 x 12”, 11 x 14”, 14 x 14” and 14 x 17”.
As an option, DRYSTAR 5503 can also print mammography images. Using our dedicated DT2 Mammo film provides you high image quality, in accordance with mammography standards. With its 508 dpi resolution and the A#Sharp technology, DRYSTAR 5503 produces sharp images, ideally suited for digital mammography.An automatic quality assurance tool is built in to help you with your daily quality checks. Images can be printed on 8 x 10” film, as well as on 10 x 12” film for modalities with larger detectors. As a third film size for mammography we also offer 11 x 14”. In the mammography mode, the DRYSTAR 5503 can print up to 160 8 x 10” mammo films per hour, fitting easily into an environment with several modalities, while supporting full performance for the mammography department.
By bringing together a diversity of modalities within an appropriate user-friendly integration – sharp high resolution imaging, leading-edge technology, excellent media and optimal user-friendliness – DRYSTAR 5503 is well equipped to serve the multiple demands of a busy department.
