PACS developer Lockheed Martin Western Development Laboratories Medical Imaging Systems of Hoffman Estates, IL, has won two contracts worth nearly $10 million to install its Vantage PACS networks at two hospitals in Anchorage, AK.

In the first installation, Lockheed Martin won an $8.2 million bid to install a PACS network at Alaska Native Medical Center. The company will install 50 workstations to link different departments in the hospital, and the installation will include computed radiography, dry x-ray film printing, and teleradiology links.

At the other site, Lockheed Martin will install a PACS network worth $1.2 million at Elmendorf Air Force Base Hospital, where the radiology department plans to begin the transition to a filmless environment prior to moving into a new facility next year.
