Petromed, the exclusive distributor for StorCOMM's PACS in Russia, has expanded the Jacksonville, FL-based company's presence there with three new sites. All three are located in Murmansk, near the Barents Sea in northern Russia. The sites include the regional hospital, the trauma hospital for the city, and the regional imaging center for Murmansk and the surrounding area. Implementation of small PACS at each site includes modality connections, archive, diagnostic workstations, Web distribution, and tape backup. This implementation opens the opportunity for future connection between the sites to share patient information, according to Petromed, which became the exclusive distributor in Russia for StorCOMM in October 2003. Its first installation, at the Medical Military Academy, is the largest PACS project in Russia with five locations providing 3200 beds.
