Acuo Technologies showcased its DICOM Services Grid software at the 93rd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago last month.
The AcuoMed Image Manager is a secure, open-system software solution for transporting, storing, tracking and retrieving digital images across an entire DICOM network. It is a DICOM 3.0 Level 2 compliant server which uses Microsoft Windows 2000 or 2003 server under Intel or AMD as a platform.
The Acuo DICOM Services Grid is an enabling open systems software solution that facilitates a DICOM infrastructure built on service-oriented architecture that can aggregate/federate DICOM objects and query results, virtualize and replicate storage assets, and is built on a collaborative and extensible grid computing model.
AcuoMed works in conjunction with AcuoStore, a digital asset manager. AcuoStore serves as a digital vault, communicating the instructions of AcuoMed with the diverse DICOM storage devices in which digital DICOM image and patient information is contained. AcuoMed and AcuoStore are designed to improve the performance of new PACS and to be added to legacy PACS.
