The Leeds Teaching Hospitals, Britain's largest hospital trust, has chosen Agfa's IMPAX solution as the first step in what will be one of the largest PACS programs ever in the U.K. When complete, the Agfa PACS infrastructure will extend through all eight hospitals in the Leeds group. The first implementation will occur at Leeds General Infirmary, one of the trust's hospitals and one of the country's major teaching hospitals. Plans call for the system to be up and running within three months after the order is placed. The hospital performs approximately 200,000 radiology examinations per year and will store more than six years' worth of patient images online for internal use and two years' worth for Web distribution.
