Architecture which stores digital medical images
Old style inline, don't mess with a working system
AGFA (a vendor) PACS (picture archiving and communication system) is the architecture which stores digital medical images.
Getting Access to AGFA-PACS
PACS is requested as part of the ACMT form filled on hiring or if requested by an existing user. One would check off AGFA-PACS on the form. Note that AGFA-Ris is for Radiologists.
- Physician: It would be very rare for a physician not to require this. PACS is for viewing CT Scans, MRI's, X-Rays and ultrasounds. Images are viewed with either a program called DI Viewer or IMPAX.
- UMFA's: don't require access.
- Employees: Employees do not typically require access to PACS; however, it is not unusual for research staff to require access. Research staff includes individuals participating in "pure" research (eg. for a CIHR grant) and clinical research (eg. clinical trial).
There are two ways to access the images in PACS:
To obtain training, have the user or their assistant email firstname.lastname@example.org from a WRHA address with the users contact information, and put as the subject "AGFA-PACS training" and put in their contact information. Someone from the AGFA-PACS team would contact you.
