Pacs Inc. receives multimodality order

Ultrasound miniPACS developer Pacs Inc. has received a $130,000 contract from Trail Regional Hospital to supply the Trail, British Columbia-based hospital with its Macintosh-based MacPacs Digital Radiology System. MacPacs will be used to perform digital image acquisition, review, and archiving for the hospital’s ultrasound, CT, fluoroscopy, and nuclear medicine systems.

Pacs Inc. continued commercialization of MacPacs (formerly known as fullView) when its previous provider, International Imaging Electronics, decided to discontinue the product line in late 1997 (PNN 10/98).

In new MacPacs developments, the company has begun beta testing of a Windows-based client, and plans to add NT-based database servers. The Blaine, WA-based company also now offers a laptop-based remote acquisition system, which allows sonographers to travel to remote locations, acquire ultrasound studies, and transmit them to radiology reading centers. Radiology Associates of Lethbridge, Alberta, will begin testing the system this summer.
