Portland hospital goes filmless after move

A large-scale Agfa PACS network is being used to provide a filmless radiology environment at a new location for Portland-based Doembecher Children's Hospital. The hospital moved this month to a new facility on the Marquam Hill campus of Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland.

High-resolution workstations have been placed in radiology as well as pediatric and neonatal intensive care units, while 17 PC-based clinical review stations have been installed in clinics throughout the hospital, according to Ridgefield Park, NJ-based Agfa. An Agfa Drystar dry digital imager has been installed in case a hard copy of an image is required.

An Agfa archive handles image storage, while a RIS interface allows radiology reports to appear along with corresponding images. Work-flow management software provides prefetching of historical images and reports.
