The AntoniusMesosGroup (AMG) has signed a letter of intent with Agfa HealthCare to digitize its radiology departments. By fall 2003, the hospital group, which includes three hospitals in the Netherlands, expects to be completely filmless, implementing Agfa Impax with integrated RIS. The project is valued at Euro 3.75 million. The project initially will install Agfa RIS with speech recognition at each of the sites. AMG's three radiology departments will then be linked with Agfa's Impax system. The next step will be to integrate the RIS and PACS.

In Charleston, WV, the installation of Impax at one site, Charleston Area Medical Center, is leading to its expansion to three others. The Charleston center went filmless in spring 2002. Installation of Impax at the other three hospitals in the nonprofit CAMC Health System could be completed by next spring.
