DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is a global IT standard designed to ensure the interoperability of systems used to produce, store, display, process, send, retrieve, query or print medical images and derived structured documents, as well as to manage related workflow. DICOM-compatible versions of Imation InfiniVault Model 5, Model 35 and Model 70 archive storage appliances are available, bringing the very same features and benefits of InfiniVault storage to vital medical information.
Medical images from scanning devices (modalities) and systems, such as Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and Radiology Imaging Systems (RIS), are critical information that must be protected and retained for long periods of time. Storing medical images is a concern for a variety of reasons, including the economics of long-term retention, HIPAA compliance, and ensuring the availability of the images when needed.
InfiniVault DICOM is a flexible healthcare archive solution that, when coupled with an InfiniVault appliance and RDX media, is capable of meeting compliance needs with no additional costs for hardware, software, or infrastructure changes. It also protects against technology obsolescence by storing images in the DICOM format, and by using RDX removable HDD storage systems with a 30-year archival disk life (as per Ecma International standards). Furthermore, when higher capacity RDX disks become available, they can be used with no system changes required.
