On march 15th, David Bleuzet, from AGFA Medical Imaging, has conducted a DR plate training at MSF Logistique offices in Merignac, France.
This training was the opportunity for TB-Speed local teams (Cambodia, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia) to train on the installation and the performance of a DR Plate.
This system will be used to retrofit the existing analog mobile X-ray units used in the TB-Speed project. The DR units are operated with the MUSICA workstations, which comprise an intuitive imaging workflow engine and quality control tool for radiography efficiency.
