1 1 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 Agfa HD Mammography System HDR-C Plus High Dynamic Range and Contrast For Optimal Mammographic Imaging

2 2 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 Agfa HD Mammography System Mamoray ® FilmMamoray ® Cassette Mamoray ® Screen Agfa Chemistry Darkroom & Daylight Systems

3 3 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 HDR-C Plus Mammography Film 3 emulsion layers allow the contrast curve to be individually steered for each portion of the contrast curve Emulsion Layer 1 provides enhanced skin-line visualization and controls OD > 3.8 Emulsion Layer 2 maintains a steep curve throughout the entire diagnostic area  Layer 2a controls OD <2.0  Layer 2b controls OD >1.5

4 4 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 HDR-C Plus Mammography Film High contrast and very high density for viewing skin line, subcutaneous and retro-glandular areas. High contrast in breast parenchyma. Improved view of dense tissues in mid region. Toe contrast allows clinically significant info, such as micro- calcifications in dense breast tissue, to be more easily visualized. Shoulder contrast allows visualization of low – density breast tissue in the darkest areas of film.

5 5 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 HDR-C Mammography Film HD Mammography System also available with HDR-C film Similar system speed with lower contrast in the mid and upper densities as compared to HDR-C Plus Results obtained using Agfa HD chemistry. X-Rite 383 Sensitometer and X-rite 380 Densitometer NOTE: HDR-C contrast performance can be fine tuned to meet radiologists demands through the selection of chemistry. HDR-C Plus in Agfa HD HDR-C in Agfa HD HDR-C in High Contrast Chemistry

6 6 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 HD Mammography Screens/Cassettes Two speed choices available  HD Screen equivalent to the 150 speed systems on the market  HD-S Screen equivalent to the 190 speed systems on the market Unique Light Piping Technology  Better image resolution and increased sharpness of image with absorption of diffused light in screen phosphor layer Higher pigment to binder ratio for outstanding resolution Continued on next slide

7 7 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 HD Mammography Screens/Cassettes, Cont’d EBC® (Electron Beam Cured) Topcoating for rapid, intimate film/screen contact Advanced protective layer technology for sharpness enhancement Available in US and European window sizes Patented Absorption Compensation System to control screen speed variability well within ACR requirements

8 8 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 Absorption Compensation System Patented process to tightly control screen speed within ACR requirements Measured screen absorption adjusted by adding a thin layer of absorbing foil Results in tighter tolerance in optical density between the screen/cassettes when exposing in AEC mode

9 9 Created by Agfa HealthCare – NAFTA Women’s Care - May 2004 Recommended & Approved Chemistries Agfa HD Developer & HD Fixer are recommended for optimum performance & chemical stability Additional chemistries are approved for use with HDR-C Plus and HDR-C film  Allied Autex HD Developer & Autex Fixer  H.R.
