Immediate Scalability

Diagram portraying the scalability of the Image Grid VM.

ImageGrid VM is designed to utilize an expandable set of resources provided by the virtualization infrastructure. PACS administrators can scale resources up or down as required by the dynamic environment of their operation.

ImageGrid VM can be easily licensed with more virtual CPU cores to increase the overall performance, more raw storage devices to expand image storage capacity, and new virtual network adaptors to distribute network traffic more effectively.

Unlimited Redundancy

ImageGrid VM has the flexibility to be configured as a primary PACS server, a backup PACS server, or as a DICOM routing and prefetching server.

ImageGrid VM can be used as a primary PACS for storage, back-up, and diagnostic review of all study images captured by acquiring modalities.

The ImageGrid VM servers deployed in different facilities within the healthcare organization, work in tandem to facilitate transferring of captured medical images from modalities in each facility to the primary PACS server. 

PACS administrators can utilize post-processing, tag morphing, rule-based routing, and pre-fetching among many other workflow automations to build customized distributed solutions for image capture, diagnostic reading, and reporting as required by their organization.
