Incorporating high-resolution monitors for softcopy diagnosis of breast images, Agfa said the workstation is equipped with image manipulation tools such as window/level, invert, zoom, magnify, annotation, hanging protocols, and study management tools such as priors handling, active worklist and routing rules. The workstation also comes with full integration capability with information systems such as PACS, RIS and HIS as well as reporting applications.
