Acuo Technologies (Booth 8357) is showcasing its archiving software and latest version of the DICOM Services Grid. The grid creates a search engine environment to aggregate, federate and virtualize medical imaging assets and related content. Acuo’s grid brings together IHE IT infrastructure integration profiles and standards-based technology for complementing existing architecture, thus creating a workflow-enabled infrastructure for managing DICOM data sets. The services and resources are made available to any other application or user in an authorized fashion. Since native nodes on the grid are able to integrate via standard protocols, such as HL7 to a HIS/RIS, workflow can be created through clinical policies based upon any meta-data. The workflow can be extended through image movement, compression, encryption, prefetching, caching or permanent storage.
