Getting started
1
Understanding IMPAX and the hardware and software components required for IMPAX helps
ensure successful installations and upgrades.
Prerequisite knowledge and software
(Topic number: 7760)
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
13) 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 12).
What is IMPAX 6.5.1?
(Topic number: 7749)
IMPAX 6.5.1 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 6.5.1 enables data sharing and data synchronization in a macro enterprise using
a central Data Center.
The IMPAX 6.5.1 Client focuses on the integration of PACS, RIS, and Reporting applications into
a single delivery of information. A single IMPAX 6.5.1 Client application can be used by a range of
users on any appropriate, networked workstation they have access to.

IMPAX cluster overview
(Topic number: 7791)
Every IMPAX installation is based on the following main components:
• Network Gateway
• 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. The
Database Server collects and manages all patient and study demographic data.
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.

Deploying IMPAX as a data center with IMPAX
spokes
(Topic number: 11647)
One IMPAX cluster can be set up as central repository (or hub) for archiving studies from several
individual IMPAX clusters, called spokes. This way different sites can share studies while not each
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.5.1
Agfa Company Confidential—Subject to Non-Disclosure Obligation
10
having to maintain an extensive archive on-site. The hub IMPAX cluster acts as a data center for the
spokes.
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.
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.5.1
Agfa Company Confidential—Subject to Non-Disclosure Obligation
11
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.
4. The patient arrives and needs to be admitted to the facility to have a study performed. The
system checks the ADT to see if a record already exists for the patient. If so, that patient ID is
used; otherwise, a new patient ID is generated.
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 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 archive 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
data center’s Connectivity Manager, using HL7. At this point, the study will also be sent to the
data center.
Order of cluster installations
(Topic number: 7763)
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 6.5.1 AS3000 Installation and Configuration Guide or IMPAX
6.5.1 AS300 Installation and Configuration Guide
2. Install the Application Server.
Install the Business Application services and IMPAX documentation on the Application Server.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.5.1 Application Server Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide
3. Begin configuration of the Application Server.

(Windows Server 2008), compress web services, set connections to the image and audit servers,
and set logging levels.
Required guide: IMPAX 6.5.1 Application Server Installation, Upgrade, 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 6.5.1 AS300 Installation and Configuration Guide
5. Install and configure Curator and the CD Export server.
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 6.5.1 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 6.5.1 Application Server Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide
7. Install and configure Clients.

Enabling Automatic Updates for critical Windows XP or 2003 updates
(Topic number: 7701)
Automatic Updates allow Microsoft to automatically determine what critical system updates are
needed for a system and to automatically download those updates. Only patches that Microsoft
deems as critical system updates are downloaded. Critical updates are downloaded to C:\Program
Files\WindowsUpdate\V4. When updates are downloaded, the Automatic Updates icon appears in
the Windows taskbar.
If a critical update has a negative effect on the system, the critical update can be uninstalled using
the Windows Add or Remove Programs dialog. Overall, Agfa believes that the risk to patient
information is far greater if the system is not patched and does not have the prescribed critical system
updates.

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
(Topic number: 46790)
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

Installing the IMPAX Installation Server
(Topic number: 7773)
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 75).
Alternatively, you can set up an IMPAX Installation Server by running the
IMPAXInstallationServerSetup.exe on a Windows-based server.
Setting up the Installation Server makes it easier to install the Client software from a central website.
You can also use it to install updates to the Client software when they become available throughout
the site and to remote Clients. (Details regarding how to update Clients are provided in Configuring
automatic Client updates (refer to page 81).)
You may 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 61))
or on a separate, dedicated Windows-based server.
Note:
If your site has a large number of IMPAX Clients, or they are regularly updated, using an
Application Server as an Installation Server may affect the performance of Clients connected
to that Application Server. This is because the Clients all check for a new version every 30
minutes and, although staggered, performance issues have been reported when many Clients
are downloading the new IMPAX Client software.
Therefore, we recommend:
• Using a third-party software distribution application (for example, Microsoft SMS or Altiris)
to avoid saturation of the Application Server. Consult your regional Agfa representative for
options.
• Placing the Installation Server on 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.
The Installation Server Setup package contains:
• The installers (or links) for the IMPAX Client prerequisites:
• .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
• Visual C++ 9.0 SP1
• DirectX
• The IMPAX Client Installer
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.5.1

requirements for hardware and software before upgrading the workstation to IMPAX 6.5.1.
Detailed instructions on installing the external software required for IMPAX Client workstations
are available in Installing external software (refer to page 21) or the documentation provided with
the software.
You must install and configure the software in the order listed in External software: Order of installation
tasks (refer to page 21).
Running the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
installer package
(Topic number: 107096)
Important!
.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 must be installed prior to starting the Client installation. We
recommend using Group Policies or SMMS to download and install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.
However, if these methods are not available, the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installer package
is available.
The Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installer package is a modified version of the IMPAX
Installation Server. It distributes the .NET upgrade to Client workstations throughout the site and
to remote Clients.
A week prior to upgrading the IMPAX Client software, run the installer package on the Application
Server or a dedicated Windows-based server. We recommend running the installer package during
the site's off-hours as downloading and installing the Microsoft .NET framework can take over 30
minutes, depending on network speed.
If you choose to run the installer package on a dedicated server that does not already have the IMPAX
Installation Server installed and using https mode, 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 (refer to page 58) before running the installer
package. If using http mode, you do not need to install the SSL certificate. For more details on how
to get clients to point to the correct location of the Installation Server, see Installing the IMPAX
Installation Server (refer to page 57).

Enabling integrated Windows authentication
(Topic number: 10214)
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.

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
(Topic number: 10054)
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 57).
Client Installation, Upgrade, and Configuration Guide—IMPAX 6.5.1
Agfa Company Confidential—Subject to Non-Disclosure Obligation
81
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
(Topic number: 10058)
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
(Topic number: 10065)
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 57).
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.
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 gets a new update while the user is working, the user must log out of the Client
and log in again for the new version to take effect.
Disabling automatic Client updates

6.5.1 Client Knowledge Base: Extended.
5. Enable automatic updates for the test Clients, as described in Enabling automatic Client updates
(refer to page 82).
6. Disable automatic updates for the remaining Clients, as described in Disabling automatic Client
updates (refer to page 83).
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 82).
Reconfiguring the Manifest file with the correct Server name
(Topic number: 10071)
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 the IMPAX 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 a particular Client update
(Topic number: 10073)
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. Ensure the Background Intelligent Transfer and PACS Client Updater services are running.
2. On the Installation Server, uninstall the update.
3. 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
(Topic number: 7747)
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 IMPAX Client to the Startup menu
1. Select Start > All Programs.
2. Go to Agfa IMPAX > IMPAX Client.
3. Right-click and drag IMPAX Client to the Startup menu.
4. Select Copy Here.
5. Confirm that you want to make this change for all users.

Glossary
A
ADT
Admission, Discharge, Transfer. An ADT
message contains patient demographic and
visit information that is stored by a HIS or
RIS.
Connectivity Manager also provides
connectivity to each modality and the PACS.
D
database
A collection of data that is organized so that
its contents can easily be accessed, managed,
and updated.
Application Server
Intermediary server between IMPAX Client
and IMPAX Server machines. LDAP,
Documentation, and other Business Services
reside on the Application Server.
Archive Server
The IMPAX server that manages the archive.
The Archive Server handles requests to store
studies to the archive and to retrieve studies
from the archive. The Archive Server stores
studies in its cache before archiving them to
long-term storage.
C
cluster
A networking solution combining two or more
otherwise independent computers, enabling
them to work together in managing hospital
data.
Connectivity Manager
A middleware component in the integration
between hospital information systems and
other hospital imaging departments.

between a computer and a peripheral device,
such as a printer, CD-ROM, or cartridge
driver. It may control internal system features,
such as digital video or audio playback.
DICOM
Digital Imaging and Communications in
Medicine. The standard communication
protocol used by a PACS, HIS, or modality to
exchange information or images with other
systems.
F
firewall
On a local area network (LAN) connected to
a larger network, the security system that
prevents outside intrusion and that keeps
internal information from getting out.
Typically, all traffic must pass through the
machine on which the firewall is implemented.
114
H
hardware dongle
A device that attaches to a computer to control
access to a particular application. Dongles
provide the most effective means of copy
protection. Typically, the dongle attaches to a
PC’s USB port.
HIS
Hospital Information System. The database
used by a hospital to manage patient
information and scheduling.
IP address
The Internet Protocol address is a numeric
address that identifies the station to other
TCP/IP devices on the network.
L
load balancing
Distributing processing and communications
activity evenly across a computer network so
that no single device is overwhelmed.
M
Macro enterprise
HIS verification
An option that forces the PACS to verify all
incoming images from an acquisition station
or modality against specific criteria, such as
the patient ID and accession number. The
PACS sends a message through the RIS
Gateway to verify the criteria against what is
contained in the HIS. If the criteria match,
then the images can be stored permanently.
HL7
A Macro enterprise is an environment
comprised of multiple clusters or Micro
enterprises and coordinated by a central Data
Center. It is the most common deployment
type.
master Curator
When using multiple Curators, the
first Curator that runs, which owns the job
queue.
Stands for Health Level 7, a standard
communication protocol used for the
transmission of medical information. HL7 is
used primarily by HIS systems and does not
support transmission of images.
modality
HTTPS
N
Hypertext transfer protocol, secure, a URL
access method for connecting to http servers
using SSL (secure sockets layer).
I
Image area
Component of the IMPAX Client application
that displays study images. The Image area
includes many tools for viewing and marking
up images.

An imaging discipline, such as CT, or a device
that gathers digital information, such as
digitizers for X-ray film, MRI scanners, and
CR devices.
network
A group of computers, peripherals, or other
equipment connected to one another for the
purpose of passing information and sharing
resources. Networks can be local or remote.
Network Gateway
The Network Gateway is part of the IMPAX
MVF cluster. Essentially, this is the workflow
manager of the IMPAX 6.0 and later system.
The Network Gateway controls the studies
115
coming into the cluster from an acquisition
station, validates these incoming studies
against information from the HIS or RIS, and
routes the validated studies to cache or archive.
O
operations, IMPAX
The IMPAX actions allowed by a permission.
For example, operations include dictation,
printing to paper, and executing SQL
statements through CLUI. You can further
refine some operations by setting a study status
flag on the operation. For example, you can
allow printing only on dictated studies.
P
PACS
A Picture Archive and Communication
Systems (PACS) makes it possible to
electronically store, manage, distribute, and
view images.
single-host configuration along with the
Application Server and Connectivity Manager
software.
slave Curator
When using multiple Curators, the secondary
Curators. Though the master Curator owns
the job queue, PREPARE jobs are associated
with the Curator that started the job.
SSL
Secure Sockets Layer. A protocol from
Netscape Communications Corporation,
which is designed to provide secure
communications on the Internet.
SSL certificate
A digital certificate with the SSL protocol that
has been issued by a certificate authority.
standalone station
permissions, IMPAX
Permissions define the available IMPAX
features and types of studies that users in a
particular role have access to. Permissions are
made up of a set of operations.
R
RIS
Radiology Information System. Responsible
for scheduling exams and for report
management in the Radiology department.
S
single-host configuration
Windows server on which the IMPAX Client,
AS300, and Application Server software are
installed. Runs under Windows XP SP3. The
standalone does not have its own installation
program. To create a standalone , the AS300,
Application Server, and Client installation
programs are each run separately.
station containers
In the navigation pane of the Configure area
- Stations section, the station containers are
like folders that organize groups of stations.
You can set configuration options for the
station containers, and all stations within that
container inherit those configuration options.
A configuration in which the Database,
Archive Server, and Network Gateway server
components are all installed on a single server.
T
single-server configuration
TalkStation is voice recognition software that
can be integrated with IMPAX. TalkStation
can convert spoken speech to typed text
An IMPAX single server is a Windows server
that runs the AS300 Server software in a

without having to go through a transcription
phase.
Text area
Component of the IMPAX Client that displays
study, order, and report information.
U
user
Users represent individuals, such as a
radiologist or a clinician. Each user must
belong to at least one primary role. A user can
also belong to other secondary roles. Users
inherit permissions, licenses, and preferences
from their role.
W
web cache
Images that have been compressed by Curator
are stored in the web cache. These images are
compressed using Mitra Wavelet compression
to reduce their size for access over low
bandwidth.
workflow
A sequence of events, initiated by a trigger
event.
worklist
A collection of patients and their studies. For
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.
