Agfa PACS connects Canadian Northwest Territories
The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) in Canada has selected Agfa Healthcare's Impax PACS to migrate its regional radiology services to a digital environment.

Agfa's Impax has already been installed at the Stanton Territorial Hospital, one of four main hospitals in the Northwest Territories and the agreement foresees its expansion to the other three facilities.

GNWT plans to deploy CR systems in the 18 community health centers currently providing diagnostic imaging services across the Territories. These systems will eventually connect to Agfa's Impax.

The Impax PACS project is set to be complete at the end of April, with the CR componenet projected for completion in June 2010.
