Getting started
1
Understanding IMPAX and the hardware and software components required for IMPAX helps ensure
successful installations and upgrades.
Prerequisite knowledge and software
The installation procedures require that you have general knowledge of computer hardware and
software concepts and proficiency in operating and troubleshooting computer software. You also need
the hardware and software outlined in the Hardware and software requirements (refer to page 14)
section.
Install IMPAX Clients only after the server components of the IMPAX cluster are installed and configured.
Details are available in Order of cluster installations (refer to page 13).
What is IMPAX 6.4?
IMPAX 6.4 combines the traditional activities of RIS informatics management with PACS image
management to provide a powerful platform for imaging-based planning, interpretation, and results
distribution. IMPAX 6.4 enables data sharing and data synchronization in a macro enterprise using a
central Data Center.
The IMPAX 6.4 Client focuses on the integration of PACS, RIS, and Reporting applications into a single
delivery of information. A single IMPAX 6.4 Client application can be used by a range of users on any
appropriate, networked workstation they have access to.
IMPAX cluster overview
Every IMPAX installation is based on the following main components:
• Network Gateway
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
9
• Archive Servers
• Oracle Server or SQL Server
• Application Server
• Curator
• IMPAX Clients—local and remote
The sum of these components is called the cluster. An IMPAX cluster is the set of core IMPAX components
that contains one database. SPFTP/ASPFTP is used for communication within the IMPAX cluster. Any
third-party display stations are considered to be outside the cluster. They use DICOM to communicate
with the cluster.
A typical installation has a Database Server, one or more Archive Servers, one or more Network
Gateways, and one or more Curators. A third-party load balancer is optional, to help handle many
Clients. Local Clients are spread throughout the entire enterprise, and remote Clients outside the
enterprise firewall. These Clients connect to one or more Application Server machines, either directly
or through a load balancer. The Application Server acts much like a proxy machine to handle security,
authentication, and communication with the IMPAX Server components.
When images are transmitted to the IMPAX cluster, the Network Gateway performs validation of the
study images and data. Validation requires the Network Gateway to query the HIS/RIS and ensure that
the study and patient demographics match what is currently incoming from a modality or a transmit
device. If the validation is successful, the images are “allowed” into the system and are routed to the
Database Server. The Database Server collects and manages all patient and study demographic data.
The Database Server forwards the study images to the Archive Server, where the images are saved in
local cache until they are permanently stored in the DICOM archive.
The IMPAX Clients, both local and remote, are used to view study images. Local Clients can get images
directly from the Network Gateway image cache. If images have been archived, the Network Gateway
image cache gets them from the Archive Server. The Curator generates compressed wavelet images
and stores them in a web cache, which may also be seen by local Clients. When a study is diagnosed
and dictated, the status of the study is updated at the Database Server, and when a report is generated,
it is forwarded to the HIS/RIS.

IMPAX single- and multi-cluster workflow
The following is the IMPAX 6.4 workflow involving a local IMPAX cluster and the Data Center.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
11
Single cluster
Multiple clusters
1. A study is scheduled for a patient and the details are recorded in the RIS. The study is scheduled
well in advance of the actual appointment, but the order may not be recorded in the RIS until the
day before the exam.
2. The RIS sends the order to the IMPAX Connectivity Manager, using an HL7 notification.
3. The night before the scheduled study, the Connectivity Manager sends IMPAX notification of the
study and IMPAX automatically searches for and retrieves relevant priors images from the local
archive. This process is called prefetching.
If the facility is part of an enterprise or a multiple IMPAX cluster installation, IMPAX also searches
for relevant priors in the long-term or central storage Data Center.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
12
4. The patient arrives and needs to be admitted to the facility to have a study performed. Using the
personal data of the patient, check the ADT system to see if a record already exists. If so, use that
patient ID; otherwise, generate one.
5. The study is performed on a modality and is sent to the local IMPAX cluster.
6. HIS verification is performed on the patient demographics of the study.
7. When IMPAX receives the study, it checks to see if it needs to get relevant priors from the local
archive and fetches them. This process is called autofetching. It generally occurs when prefetching
cannot be performed or when studies have been added to the archive.
In an enterprise installation, the search includes priors stored in the IMPAX Data Center.
8. When the radiologist completes the report, it is sent to the Connectivity Manager.
9. The Connectivity Manager sends the report to the Application Server, where it is forwarded to
the IMPAX database for storage. If the RIS is an IMPAX RIS or a queryable one, the report is stored
on the RIS.
In an enterprise installation, the Connectivity Manager also sends the completed report to the
IMPAX Data Center’s Connectivity Manager, using HL7. At this point, the study should also be
sent to the IMPAX Data Center.
Order of cluster installations
The IMPAX cluster has many components and each depends on other components in the cluster. To
correctly install and configure components in the cluster, follow this order of installation:
1. Install the Database Server, Archive Server, and Network Gateway.
Install the core Server components and create the portable password file required to install other
IMPAX components. Do not configure the AS300 Server components at this time; the Application
Server must be installed before these Server components can be configured. Refer to the guide
appropriate to your configuration.
Required guide: One of IMPAX 6.4 AS3000 Installation and Configuration Guide or IMPAX 6.4
AS300 Installation Guide
2. Install the Application Server.
Install the Business Application services and IMPAX documentation on the Application Server.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 Application Server Installation and Configuration Guide
3. Begin configuration of the Application Server.
Create and import an SSL certificate, configure ADAM, compress web services, set connections
to the image and audit servers, and set logging levels.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 Application Server Installation and Configuration Guide
4. If you have installed a Windows-based Database Server, Archive Server, or Network Gateway,
configure these components.
Configure database backups, image and web caches, and archives (if necessary). In clusters that
include only Solaris-based systems, these configuration steps are done automatically during the
installation.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 AS300 Configuration Guide
5. Install and configure Curator and the CD Export server.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
13
If the site requires compressed web images, install and configure one or more Curator systems
and set up the web cache. If you are installing multiple Curators, install and start the master
Curator first, then install and start the slave Curators.
If you will be using the CD Export feature in the IMPAX Client, install the CD Export server.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 Curator and CD Export Server Installation Guide
6. Complete the configuration of the Application Server.
Complete the optional Application Server configuration tasks that are applicable to the site.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 Application Server Installation and Configuration Guide
7. Install and configure Clients.
Install and configure the IMPAX Client, the PACS system used to access images.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.4 Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide
If installing a standalone station (single-host AS300 with Application Server and Client), refer to the
IMPAX 6.4 Standalone Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide.
If installing a single-server (single-host AS300 with Connectivity Manager and Application Server),
consult “Installing an IMPAX AS300 single-server” in the IMPAX 6.4 AS300 Installation Guide.
All documentation is available on the IMPAX Documentation DVD.

Installing the IMPAX
Client software
4
The following information explains how to install the IMPAX Client software, including setting up an
Installation Server. It also explains how to automate the installation of the IMPAX Client software.
IMPAX Client installation types: Reference
The following provides an overview of the different types of installation available for the IMPAX Client.
IMPAX Client Installation CD—The default InstallShield package provided by Agfa.
Installation Server—A web page with links to each installer and installation instructions that allow
users to download and install Client software and updates.
Portable installation CD—A portable IMPAX Client installation CD that contains all prerequisite and
IMPAX Client software. The script can be customized to identify the Application Server and
authentication type, making the installation silent.
Silent or Automated installation—A command line process that installs the IMPAX Client using the
default IMPAX Client installation CD or IMPAX Installation Server silent, or automated. The various
installation settings and their values can be specified eliminating the need for any user input during
the installation.
Automatic Client Updates—Background updates of the IMPAX Client that are automatically sent to
each IMPAX Client workstation.
Installing the IMPAX Installation Server
You can choose to install the IMPAX Client software onto each workstation from CD, in which case you
can skip this procedure and continue with Installing the IMPAX Client (refer to page 60) . Alternatively,
you can set up an IMPAX Installation Server by running the IMPAXInstallationServerSetup.exe on a
Windows-based server. The Installation Server Setup package contains:
• The installers for .NET Framework and MDAC, which are prerequisites for installing IMPAX Client
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
45
• The IMPAX Client Installer
• A web page with links to each installer and installation instructions, available in 24 languages
Setting up the Installation Server makes it easier to distribute Client software updates throughout the
site and to remote Clients. You can also use it to install updates to the Client software when they become
available. (Details regarding how to update Clients are provided in Configuring automatic Client updates
(refer to page 65).)
You can choose to install the Installation Server program on an IMPAX Application Server (in which
case you can continue with Running the IMPAX Installation Server package (refer to page 49)) or on a
separate, dedicated Windows-based server. If Clients are regularly installed and updated, using an
Application Server as an Installation Server will affect the performance of Clients connected to that
Application Server. Therefore, you may prefer to use a dedicated server.
If you choose to install the IMPAX Installation Server package on a dedicated server, use the Web Server
Certificate Wizard to create a certificate request to submit to a trusted certificate authority, and install
the certificate. You must install the SSL certificate on the dedicated server before installing the IMPAX
Installation Server package.
Installing an SSL certificate on a dedicated server
Important!
This procedure does not need to be completed if the IMPAX Installation Server is being
installed on an IMPAX Application Server.
The IMPAX Installation Server cannot be used without an SSL certificate. Purchase a 128-bit encrypted
SSL certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority to guarantee the security of users accessing IMPAX
using a remote Client.

The following information explains how to enable Windows authentication if the Client was installed
under IMPAX authentication, how to configure the automatic update service, how to accelerate Client
startup by adding the software to the Startup menu, how to set up a smart card enrolment station, and
how to add users to the smart card enrolment station. More configuration information is available in
the IMPAX 6.4 Client Knowledge Base.
Enabling integrated Windows authentication
You can configure IMPAX such that users can log into Windows and into IMPAX at the same time. This
single sign-on option saves users the time involved in logging into IMPAX separately.
If you installed the IMPAX Client with the Windows Authentication option, no configuration is necessary.
If you installed it with the IMPAX Authentication option, to use Windows authentication instead, you
must modify the impax-client-main.exe.config file.
Note:
For configuration purposes, at least one IMPAX Client in the site must be installed with the
IMPAX Authentication option.
To enable integrated Windows authentication
1. Ensure that the IMPAX Client is not running.
2. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the location where the IMPAX Client software is installed; by
default, this is C:\Program Files\Agfa\IMPAX Client.
In this folder are numbered folders (such as 6.2.752) that indicate which version of the Client is
being used.
3. In the numbered folder of the most recent version of the IMPAX, right-click on
impax-client-main.exe.config and select Open With > Notepad.
Alternatively, you can open this file in another text editor.

<Plugin Default="false" Type="AgfaHC.Authentication"
Path="impax-client-authentication-windows.dll">
5. Change the Default= value to true.
<Plugin Default="true" Type="AgfaHC.Authentication"
Path="impax-client-authentication-windows.dll">
6. Save and close the config file.
7. Restart the Client.
Two domain options are now available on the Client Login screen: AgfaHealthcare and the site’s
domain.
To ensure that the login information is handled correctly, you may also have to add the Application
Server to the local intranet zone on the Client.
To add the Application Server to the Clients local intranet zone
1. Launch Internet Explorer.
2. Select Tools > Internet Options.
3. In the Internet Options dialog, switch to the Security tab.
4. Click Local intranet.
5. Click Sites.
6. In the Local intranet dialog, click Advanced.
7. In the Add this Web site to this zone field, type https://<appserver> , where <appserver> is the
fully qualified domain name of the Application Server.
A fully qualified domain name is the full name of a system, including its local hostname and
complete domain name. For example, if the Server is called appserver, on a network domain
called radnet, and if radnet is within the healthorg.com domain, the fully qualified domain name
would be appserver.radnet.healthorg.com.
8. Click Add. Click OK.
9. In the Local intranet dialog, click OK, then again in the Internet Options dialog.
10. For the change to take effect, restart the Client workstation.
Configuring automatic Client updates
You can configure the IMPAX Clients to automatically use an updated version of the software when it
becomes available, without having to uninstall and reinstall the software. These updates occur in the
background when the Client is idle; they do not interrupt clinical work.
Automatic updates are installed and configured on the IMPAX Installation Server. Detailed instructions
on installing the Installation Server package are available in Installing the IMPAX Installation Server
(refer to page 45).
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
65
Note:
For large sites, if the Installation Server is installed on the same machine as the Application
Server, applying a Client update can significantly affect performance of the Application Server.
The Installation Server should either be deployed to a separate IIS-enabled server, or done
during off hours.
Starting the Background Intelligence Transfer service
If the Installation Server is armored, as would be the case if an IMPAX Application Server is used as
the Installation Server, the component needed for Client updates to work is disabled. You must start
this service manually.
To start the Background Intelligence Transfer Service
1. On the Installation Server, open Control Panel.
2. Select Administrative Tools.
3. In the Administrative Tools window, select Services.
4. In the Services window, right-click the Background Intelligence Transfer Service row and select
Start.
If the Start command is disabled, the service is already started.
5. Close the Services and the Administration Tools windows.
Enabling automatic Client updates
The default fully qualified domain name of the Installation Server, both on the Application Server and
the Client (on installation) is the same as the Application Server. Therefore, a newly installed Client
immediately checks to see if the Installation Server is installed on the Application Server, and if so,
updates if required.
To enable automatic Client updates
1. Install the IMPAX Installation Server. Details are provided in Installing the IMPAX Installation
Server (refer to page 45).
2. Note the fully qualified domain name of the Server
A fully qualified domain name is the full name of a system, including its local hostname and
complete domain name. For example, if the server is called updateserver, on a network domain
called radnet, and if radnet is within the healthorg.com domain, the fully qualified domain name
would be updateserver.radnet.healthorg.com.
3. On a Client workstation, log into IMPAX Client as an Administrator user.
4. From the Configure drawer menu
, select Stations
5. In the navigation pane, select the station container that this Client station resides in.
6. In the details pane, expand the General bar.
7. Switch to the Services Access tab.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
66
8. For Service ClientInstaller, in the URL column, type protocol://localhost/ ClientInstaller/, where
protocol is http or https, and localhost is the full server name noted in step 2.
Following the step 2 example, you would type:
http://updateserver.radnet.healthorg.com/ClientInstaller
Note that updates are set for all Client stations organized under the station container you have
configured.
The changes are saved automatically when you switch context (for example, by selecting a different
station container, selecting a different section of the Configure area, closing the Configure area,
or logging out).
9. For the change to take effect, log into and out of each Client installed on workstations in the
configured station container.
10. When a Client get a new update while the user is working, a dialog appears for restarting IMPAX.
If the user selects No, the Client restarts automatically when the user logouts of IMPAX (and is
returned to the Login screen). If the user is already at the Login screen, the Client restarts
automatically.
Disabling automatic Client updates
Conversely, you may find it necessary to disable automatic updates at some times or for certain stations.
To disable automatic Client updates
1. Log into the IMPAX Client as an Administrator user.
2. From the Configure drawer menu
, select Stations.
3. In the navigation pane, select the station container that the Client station to be disabled resides
in.
4. In the details pane, expand the General bar.
5. Switch to the Services Access tab.
6. For Service ClientInstaller, delete the information in the URL column.
The changes are saved automatically when you switch context.
7. For the change to take effect, log out of and restart each Client installed on workstations in the
configured station container.
Testing an update
A common practice is to test a particular update on a few Clients before rolling it out to the entire site.
To roll out an update on test Clients first
1. Log into the IMPAX Client as an Administrator user.
2. From the Configure drawer menu
, select Stations.
3. To create a station container for the test Clients right-click on a container and select Add Station
Container.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.4
AGFA COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
67
For details, refer to "Adding containers and station containers" (article ID 9364) in the IMPAX
6.4 Client Knowledge Base.
4. Move the test client stations into that container by dragging them.
For details, refer to "Moving stations and station containers" (article ID 9357) in the IMPAX 6.4
Client Knowledge Base.
5. Enable automatic updates for the test Clients, as described in Enabling automatic Client updates
(refer to page 66) .
6. Disable automatic updates for the remaining Clients, as described in Disabling automatic Client
updates (refer to page 67) .
7. On the Installation Server providing the Client updates, install the updated version of the Client.
8. To get the updates onto the test Clients, log out of and restart each workstation in the configured
station container.
If the update works well, enable the update on the remaining Clients, as described in Enabling automatic
Client updates (refer to page 66) .
Reconfiguring the Manifest file
If the Installation Server name does not match the security ticket name, the update causes an error
message in the log file as follows:
The BITS service error message for this job is The requested URL does not exist on the
server. Some misfile may be causing BITS to have trouble with a source or destination path.
To correct this problem, you can reconfigure the Manifest file with the correct Server name.
To reconfigure the Manifest file with the correct Server name
1. At a command prompt, type:
CreateManifest.exe -f <RootInstallFolder> -v <IMPAXversion> -m <MachineName>
Where:
• <RootInstallFolder> is the path to theIMPAX Installation Server package directory. This
argument defaults to the folder that CreateManifest was run from.
• <IMPAXversion> is the version number of the update.
• <MachineName> is the fully qualified domain name of the local machine. This argument
defaults to the name in the network's DNS.
Additional parameters for the CreateManifest command include:
Parameter
Description
PostProcessor
The assembly to use to complete post-install configuration. This argument
defaults to Agfa.Client.Updater.PostProcessor.dll.
URLProtocol
The URL protocol the client will use to retrieve the updated files contained
in the manifest. This argument defaults to http.
VirtualDirectory
The name of the virtual directory for the Installation Server. This
argument defaults to ClientInstaller.

Backing out of updates
If the update causes problems, whether on test Clients or all Clients, you can back out of it without
doing an uninstall on individual Client workstations.
To back out of a particular Client update
1. On the Installation Server, uninstall the update.
2. Reinstall the old version on the Installation Server.
When the Clients configured to detect automatic updates start, they detect that the version has
changed. They also detect that the version number (which is older) is already available. Instead
of updating, the Clients simply switch back to running the previous version. They continue to do
so until a new update is available.
Adding IMPAX Client to the Startup menu
On startup, the IMPAX Client performs some initial configuration tasks. If the user logs in before these
tasks are completed, a delay occurs before the IMPAX Client window opens. To reduce this delay, add
the IMPAX Client to the Windows Startup menu. This task is not required; it is an option for improving
performance.
To add the IMPAX Client to the Startup menu
1. Select Start > All Programs.
2. Go to Agfa IMPAX > IMPAX Client.
3. Drag IMPAX Client to the Startup menu.
4. Confirm that you want to make this change for all users.
Configuring IMPAX to burn CJK studies to CD
Complete the following steps to enable CJK support when exporting a study to CD.
To configure IMPAX to burn CJK studies to CD

IMPAX Client is integrated with the Orthopaedic Application (mediCAD) and Voxar 3D. Both of these
applications require dongles (or hardlocks).
If using one or both of these applications at your site, you can install dongles on every client workstation,
or install one dongle on a server that all clients connect to. The following information explains how to
set up a dongle on one server.
Installing Orthopaedic Application network software
The Orthopaedic Application is used for applying digital templates and completing measurements in
preparation for orthopaedic surgery. In a network installation, instead of installing dongles on each
Client workstation, you install and configure one network dongle on a Windows-based Server before
installing the Orthopaedic Application software on each Client. Details are available in Installing the
Orthopaedic Application software (refer to page 74) .
You can use one of the IMPAX Clients as the network Server for the other Clients.
At the Orthopaedic Application Network server, select a computer that meets the following criteria:
• Runs under Windows XP or Windows 2003
• Connects to all IMPAX Clients running the Orthopaedic Application
• Provides a stable connection: always powered up, rarely restarted, and never disconnected from
the network
• Configured to use a fixed IP address
Before installing the Orthopaedic Application Network software on this server, you require:
• Hectec MediCAD II Network software
• Hectec “green” USB port network dongle

radiologists, the worklist is analogous to a pile
of film jackets. They use the worklist to know
which studies they must interpret during a
specific time period. For technologists, a
worklist is a list of the studies they must perform
at specific times for each patient.
TalkStation is voice recognition software that
is integrated with IMPAX 6.4. TalkStation can
convert spoken speech to typed text without
having to go through a transcription phase.
Text area
Component of the IMPAX Client that displays
study, order, and report information.
