The effects of an agreement signed in the run-up to RSNA 2010 changed the IT approaches of two companies on the exhibit floor, TeraRecon and Agfa HealthCare.

The effects of an agreement signed in the run-up to RSNA 2010 changed the IT approaches of two companies on the exhibit floor, TeraRecon and Agfa HealthCare. One week before the imaging community trekked to Chicago, these two companies cut a deal to make TeraRecon’s thin-client iNtuition an integral part of Agfa’s IMPAX 6 PAC system.

Both companies are touting the integrated product at their booths on the RSNA 2010 exhibit floor. Purchasers don’t have to buy TeraRecon’s thin-client system along with IMPAX 6, but with the increasing emphasis on 3D and other advanced visualization techniques, they may feel the need. The value-added reseller agreement with TeraRecon gives IMPAX purchasers a wide range of advanced visualization and decision-support tools for radiology, cardiology, and nuclear medicine applications.

Advanced 3D capabilities and automated tools for volume reconstruction and image analysis are a mouse click away as part of a scalable and flexible software license that can be deployed across multiple servers. This license extends to the zero-footprint AquariusWEB viewer, which provides remote access to images, as well as vascular analyses and other quantitative results.


And there is an added bonus in that AquariusWEB can connect the user to electronic medical records. The zero-footprint viewer provides an easy way to plug into EMR systems, since it can be launched from a URL referring to the iNtuition server and the patient or study.
