FDA clears QStar PACS
QStar Technologies has received 510(k) clearance for its SntryPACS medical imaging archive appliance from the FDA.  

The PACS is intended to be used with various radiology modalities for the storage, query and retrieval of medical imaging studies, according to the Mary Esther, Fla.-based company.

QStar said that its SntryPACS is a PACS solution, optimized for DICOM storage and routing. With experience in network attached storage (NAS) technology, QStar relies on an appliance-based foundation and DICOM architecture to bring to market the new SntryPACS, designed to move, route and store DICOM images over a network.

The SntryPACS features the web-based system administration graphical user interface, self diagnostic and reporting capabilities with email alert, built-in serviceability and redundancy with RAID-based disk drives and connectivity to a selection of secondary storage devices, such as tape and optical, the company said.
