The new system will be built on commercial standards for viewing medical images, including X-rays, CT body scans and MRI brain scans.

The Department of Veterans Affairs wants to acquire a new medical imaging system based on commercial standards and wants to hear from interested vendors by Monday.

That’s just six business days after the department posted a request for information on the FedBizOpps website.

The VistA Imaging System runs today on the VA-developed Picture Archive and Communications System, installed in 143 imaging facilities nationwide.

VA now wants to acquire a new imaging system that works on the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine standard for distributing and viewing medical images, including X-rays and more advanced systems such as CT body scans and MRI brain scans.
