Mortsel, Belgium-based Agfa HealthCare has inked an agreement with Segami Corporation (Columbia, Md.) to integrate the Oasis workstation software into IMPAX 6, its sixth generation PACS.

According to Agfa, the solution is designed to enable nuclear medicine physicians to review, process and report studies using processing software on their IMPAX workstation. The software will provide users with a uniform reading and processing environment for all their planar nuclear medicine, SPECT and PET studies, and deliver a full spectrum of clinical nuclear medicine and multi-modality applications, it touts.

Oasis is a vendor neutral application for gamma cameras and PET scanners that adheres to standards such as DICOM, IHE and HL7 for a consistent and predictable workflow.
