Agfa HealthCare integrates new clinical applications in IMPAX 6™ and further enhances the efficiency strengths of IMPAX


Agfa HealthCare today announces further enhancements to its web-enabled, persona-based IMPAX 6™ PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System), addressing the advanced visualization needs in diagnostic imaging today. These new clinical applications developed for specialized areas such as virtual colonoscopy, nuclear medicine, registration and fusion and orthopaedics and further extend the clinical usability, productivity and efficiency strengths of IMPAX.

Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Virtual Colonoscopy is a non-invasive procedure for visualization of endoscopic views of the colon and an extremely patient-friendly alternative to conventional endoscopy, as it does not require the use of a colonoscope. As part of IMPAX it offers workflow optimization, increased productivity and easy distribution throughout clinical enterprise.

The IMPAX Nuclear Medicine review solution includes integrated MPR/MIP (multi-planar reformatting/maximum intensity projection) functions for volumetric data, calculation of SUV (standardized uptake values) and region of interest tools. It displays clinically-relevant PET, CT, MR and SPECT DICOM image data.

Answering the need of reading radiologists to compare single modality as well as multi-modality images, IMPAX Registration & Fusion allows for multi-modality fusion of anatomical studies (CT/MR) or a combination of anatomical and physiological studies (tracers in PET images). The IMPAX Registration & Fusion solution is ideally suited for non-invasive diagnosis and surgical treatment planning.

To reflect the increasing importance of and need for Orthopaedic measurements and surgery planning, Agfa HealthCare has introduced the IMPAX Orthopaedic Suite, a variety of orthopaedic software tools in IMPAX. This latest release features a new spine planning module for orthopaedic surgeons and an improved trauma planning module as well as a new software tool to simplify complex orthopaedic measurements.

IMPAX 6™ is Agfa HealthCare’s web-enabled, persona based, integrated PACS/RIS/Reporting solution. IMPAX 6 facilitates the diagnostic reporting process, streamlines workflows and enables image and information management and increased collaboration departmentally, enterprise-wide or even beyond.
