Agfa HealthCare has won a five-year contract from the Princes Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, Essex, U.K.
The vendor will be providing its Enterprise Imaging for Radiology software suite, including the company's vendor-neutral archive, Xero universal image viewer, and business intelligence capabilities.

Agfa said the enterprise imaging platform has been configured to handle around 260,000 imaging studies per year, with an annual growth rate of 10%.
