Agfa lands another DIN-PACS award

The consortium led by Agfa Medical of Ridgefield Park, NJ, has recieved a large-scale PACS award from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., under the military's Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications Systems project (DIN-PACS). The order is valued at $5 million. Installation is expected to begin in July at the site, which previously had a PACS network from the military's earlier Medical Diagnostic Imaging Support (MDIS) project.

The order leverages off a DIN-PACS award recieved earlier this year by the Agfa consortium. As part of a purchase order from the Pentagon Clinic (PNN 8/98), the Agfa consortium was to integrate that facility's PACS with Walter Reed's PACS network. Other members of Agfa team include Cerner of Kansas City, MO, for RIS offerings, Cabletron Systems of Rochester, NH, for networking components, and Mitra Imaging of Waterloo, Ontario for RIS integration.
