Agfa secures US Government contract

The US Government has awarded the Flanders-based company Agfa a DIN-PACS II (Digital Imaging Network/Picture Archiving and Communications System) contract, the company has announced in a media statement.

The contract initially runs for one year with an additional four option years, each worth up to $US45 million. Included in the contract are Agfa solutions for women's care, cardiology, orthopedics and more.

Over the past six years, Agfa has built a strong presence within the US government PACS market, with IMPAX(tm) installed in more than 75 medical treatment facilities. In addition, some 30 ships have Agfa solutions on board. Agfa recently announced that its PACS solutions were the first to achieve Department of Defense security certification and accreditation.
