Agfa announces that it has been selected through a competitive bid process to implement nine fixed and mobile direct radiography (DR) solutions in Evangelismos General Hospital, in Athens, Greece. The procurement of the equipment is made possible through a grant to the hospital from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF). The SNF Health Initiative comprises a budget of $450 million to support specific infrastructure, equipment and education projects that enhance the healthcare sector in Greece.

“We are very pleased to continue our 30-year relationship with Evangelismos General Hospital, and to be their partner in establishing a new era in the radiology department,” explains Vassilis Karkalis, Sales Director Radiology Solutions East Europe, for Agfa. “This project shows how, with our comprehensive DR portfolio, Agfa can provide workflow optimization in a full digital radiology environment, while fulfilling our three pillars of high quality, cost-effectiveness and usability. At the same time, benefits such as the ability to share DR detectors, our ZeroForce and full leg/full spine technologies, and support for gridless imaging all played a role in the choice of Agfa.”
