IMPAX Improves Mammography Workflow

Agfa HealthCare’s IMPAX Digital Mammography Workstation reportedly provides an enhanced diagnostic process by improving the mammography workflow through multimodality breast imaging displays.
IMPAX Digital Mammography Workstation, which is DICOM compliant, supports rapid and simultaneous display of multimodality images and incorporates a data management system that automatically routes relevant data based on a variety of user-definable criteria, including modality, patient and referring physician.
Relevant prior exams can be pre-fetched from the archive management system and sent automatically to the IMPAX workstation. Radiology results from the RIS can be displayed simultaneously when available.
The DRYSTAR 5503 is a high-throughput, high-resolution, all-in-one Direct Digital imager that can be networked for maximum productivity.
