Agfa HealthCare announces today the signing of a framework agreement with Västra Götalandsregionen, Sweden, for a contract covering a radiology information system/picture archiving and communication system (RIS/PACS) for the region's 18 hospitals. Based on this frame agreement, a number of subsequent orders will be placed; the first will be for the Sahlgrenska University Hospital, in Gothenburg, the main hospital in the region.
