Agfa HealthCare launches IMPAX™ Suites for integrated digital imaging in Europe at ECR


Solutions to improve clinical workflows and efficiencies through integration of diagnostic imaging modules

Agfa HealthCare, a leading provider of IT-enabled clinical workflow and diagnostic imaging solutions, announces today that it is launching six IMPAX™ Suites at the ECR 2008 exhibition, which will take place in Vienna, Austria, from 07th until 11th March. The Suites, ranging from enterprise solutions for multi-site healthcare facilities, to specialized mammography, cardiovascular, radiology and orthopaedic systems, are designed to provide facilities and clinicians with more focused solutions for their diagnostic imaging needs.

Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Suites are an integration of several modules into one, each designed to support specific enterprise or departmental activities and to meet very specific clinical needs. All suites offer the latest Agfa HealthCare PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) and RIS (Radiology Information System) and are delivered with state-of-the-art clinical and administrative applications, designed for the specific environments in which they will operate.

The introduction of the IMPAX Suites is based on input and feedback from Agfa HealthCare’s customers. A clear demand for more focused and tailored PACS solutions was considered to be of great importance. Meeting this growing demand, Agfa HealthCare offers six Suites in a modular format, powered by the company’s leading IMPAX 6 solution.

All six suites are readily available from Agfa HealthCare:

- IMPAX Enterprise Suite, created for the multi-site healthcare enterprise and Integrated Healthcare Delivery Networks (IHDN) operating in
- IMPAX Hospital Suite, developed for the hospital that needs to integrate multiple specialties and disciplines;
- IMPAX Radiology Suite, a solution that focuses on the self-sufficient radiology department;
- IMPAX Cardiovascular Suite, a Suite that focuses on the specific needs of the multi-modality cardiology department;
- IMPAX Orthopaedics Suite, dedicated to the orthopaedic requirements - like planning, measuring and simulating - in a digital imaging environment; and
- IMPAX Mammography Suite, a Suite that solves the imaging, workflow and reporting needs of diagnostic and screening mammography.

To effectively support the specific departmental needs, Agfa HealthCare offers its IMPAX Suites with new clinical applications and server-based 3D-tools (Maximum Intensity Projection or MIP, Multi-Planner Reformat or MPR and Volume 3D) that help increase the workflow-supported productivity of radiologists and clinicians alike. Fully focused on productivity and enterprise workflow, highly automated, intuitive and productive, Agfa HealthCare offers its clinical applications in a fully harmonized IMPAX environment.

“Following the successful introduction of our IMPAX Suites at RSNA last year, Agfa HealthCare is now ready to launch its solutions on the European market. As one of the key developers of PACS solutions in the early 1990’s, Agfa HealthCare has made a number of giant leaps in technological advancements, to the benefit of clinicians and their patients. Combining these technologies into a comfortable, ready-made package will only bring benefit to our customers, who are increasingly facing higher pressures in their daily work,” states Erkan Akyuz, Agfa HealthCare’s Chief Technology Officer. “With over 1700 IMPAX clients worldwide today, we continue to play a leading role with regards to improving the medical workflow and efficiency and the Suites clearly take Agfa HealthCare and its customers to the next level.”

Agfa HealthCare kindly invites you to visit its booth at ECR 2008 (booth 212-213) to discover its solutions and Works in Progress. The exhibition will be held in Vienna from March 7 until 11. You are also invited to get a sneak preview and visit our virtual booth.
