Belgian Hospital Chooses Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX

Agfa Healthcare has announced that Ghent University Hospital (UZ Gent) in Belgium will implement Agfa's IMPAX for Nuclear Medicine solution, including the Oasis for IMPAX dedicated nuclear medicine workstation package. The solution is expected to be up and running by the end of 2013 and will complement UZ Gent's IMPAX Radiology Information System/Picture Archiving and Communication System (RIS/PACS).

UZ Gent is one of the largest hospitals in the Flanders region of Belgium. Every medical specialty for regular and intensive care is represented in this 1000+ bed hospital, which treats about 75,000 inpatients and 400,000 outpatients each year. 

Guided workflows, fast remote reading and 'anywhere' viewing 
IMPAX for Nuclear Medicine is built on Agfa HealthCare's advanced IMPAX 6 RIS/PACS/Reporting workflow platform for image and data management. Designed to meet the unique needs of the specialty, it allows hospitals to fully integrate the nuclear medicine department's workflow and to optimise interdepartmental communications. It comprises specialised functionalities to process, read and report all nuclear medicine, SPECT, PET and multi-modality images. User-friendly features include guided workflows that unite information, applications and image processing within one cohesive image management and reporting application.


IMPAX for Nuclear Medicine comprises the Oasis for IMPAX workstation solution, developed by Agfa HealthCare in partnership with Segami Corporation, which brings an integrated, fully featured nuclear medicine image processing and viewing package to the IMPAX workstation. Clinicians no longer have to switch between workstations, or manually synchronize patient study lists.

"IMPAX for Nuclear Medicine will allow us to easily consult and compare prior exams and data," comments Professor Ingeborg Goethals, Head of the Nuclear Medicine Department.
