Agfa aligns with Segami to add nuc med options for Impax
Agfa HealthCare, a provider of diagnostic imaging and healthcare IT solutions, has signed an agreement with Segami to integrate the Oasis workstation software into Agfa's Impax 6 PACS.

The solution permits nuclear medicine physicians to review, process and report studies using advanced processing software on their Impax workstation. Agfa said that the introduction of Segami's Oasis software will provide nuclear physicians with a uniform reading and processing environment for their planar nuclear medicine, SPECT and PET studies, delivering a spectrum of clinical nuclear medicine and multi-modality applications.  Advanced processing and reconstruction, multi-modality viewing and reporting integrated into the Impax client's workflow will deliver a unified working approach throughout the nuclear medicine department.  A single sign-on and individual user profile are applied at any Impax workstation across integrated applications.

Oasis is an application for gamma cameras and PET scanners from different vendors and adheres to standards such as DICOM, IHE and HL7 for a consistent workflow, according to Agfa.
