A Half Billion Dollars in PACS…Really?

By on March 13, 2013

I found an interesting news release concerning the allocation of some government contracts.  The most notable was for Agfa Healthcare Corp.  Agfa was issued a modification exercising the first option period on contract (SPM2D1-11-D-8303/P00027).
