St Luke's orthopaedic clinic installs digital radiology backbone

5 November 2007

St Luke’s Hospital in Oxford, UK, has installed an Agfa Web 1000 PACS system, helping to improve both workflow and patient care.

The new system was acquired by a private orthopaedic clinic, run by six orthopaedic surgeons, that is situated within the main hospital at St Luke’s.

St Luke's Hospital“At our facility, the 'before and after' picture with Agfa IMPAX has been quite dramatic,” explains Jean Leece, consultant radiographer at the clinic.

“Although there is a slight incremental increase in the amount of time one needs to spend entering patient data into IMPAX, once this is complete, the system works beautifully. Editing patient files and managing radiographic images has become a substantially more efficient process.”

IMPAX Web 1000 is a web-deployable PACS for radiology services that receives, distributes, archives and displays radiographic images, enabling hospitals to eliminate their reliance on film, improve workflow and bring new efficiencies to the facility. Through a digital connection to virtually any imaging modality, departmental units and hospital information system (HIS) users are able to gain an integrated view of patient data from a single interface.
