Agfa HealthCare integrates OrthoView into IMPAX

17 July 2008

Agfa HealthCare and Southampton, UK based Meridian Technique Ltd have signed an agreement to integrate Meridian's orthopaedic digital planning solution, OrthoView, into Agfa HealthCare's IMPAX for Orthopaedics solution.

Developed in conjunction with the orthopaedic community, OrthoView consists of five specialist modules: joint replacement, fracture management, limb deformity correction, paediatrics and spine. Together, OrthoView and Agfa HealthCare's own embedded Measurement tools IMPAX provide a complete set of functions for the orthopaedic department.

OrthoView allows orthopaedic surgeons to pre-operatively plan and template surgical procedures on-screen. As hospitals throughout the world start to phase out film x-rays and introduce digital images, surgeons want a system that will let them plan surgical procedures more quickly and easily. The solution will be provided by Agfa HealthCare as part of its IMPAX Orthopaedic Suite offering.

"Integrating Meridian's OrthoView into our IMPAX solution was a natural step for Agfa HealthCare", states Gilbert Hersschens, Global Product Manager Orthopaedics at Agfa HealthCare. "We aim to meet our customer's demands and OrthoView's solid reputation is helping us meet these needs. The deep integration into the solution allows us to deliver the best of all worlds to our orthopeadic customers, Agfa HealthCare's stable and reliable IMPAX solution, coupled with OrthoView's capabilities".

"Agfa HealthCare is a key partner of ours and a major provider of digital image solutions worldwide." said Chris Pinner, Vice President Sales and Marketing Worldwide. "The close integration implemented by Agfa has created a powerful solution for orthopaedic doctors when faced by the challenges of going digital."
