October 31, 2006

Agfa HealthCare has signed a multi-million dollar deal with Thomas Memorial Hospital in South Charleston, WV and will provide Agfa’s IMPAX 6.0 PACS and the newest version of Agfa reporting solution, TalkStation 3.1. The multi-million dollar deal also includes six DX-S CR systems, which feature Agfa’s unique DirectriX needle-based detector technology and Scanhead line-to-line CR stimulation and light collection technology, for improved image quality and workflow.

As part of an expansion project, the hospital is constructing a new imaging center across the street from the main facility. It also already has an offsite MRI center (Metro MRI) in a separate location. All three facilities will be connected via Agfa HealthCare’s complete system.

The new system marks the first time the hospital will use a fully digital solution
