Agfa has built on an existing platform to evolve its DS3000 Diagnostic Workstation into a cost-effective alternative to expensive PAC systems. The Stand-Alone DS3000 utilizes the latest generation of Agfa's workstation review software and Microsoft's SQLTM database, providing access to and displaying images from digitized films, computed radiography, CT, and MR. The workflow automation features of the Stand-Alone DS3000 allow users to customize profiles for specific features. Agfa is pitching the system at budget-constrained practitioners as a low-cost alternative to a comprehensive PACS.
