Sterling Diagnostic Imaging's efforts to compete in the PACS market are meeting with success. The Greenville, SC, vendor has landed its second large-scale Canadian PACS site, at Region 3 Hospital Corporation in New Brunswick, Canada.

AHSC signed a multimillion-dollar contract with Sterling in April (SCAN 4/16/97).
