Dimager-Dicom PACS
and Teleradiology Solution

Introduction Dimager PACS Hardware and Software Requirements

Introduction

Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the standard for communicating and managing medical imaging information and related data. DICOM is both a protocol for transmitting images and a file format for storing them. Medical imaging devices communicate with the application server through the DICOM protocol. Clinicians can then locate and view the image they want to see at a workstation in an office or clinic setting.

Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is a medical imaging technology used primarily in healthcare organizations to store and digitally transmit electronic images and clinically-relevant reports securely. PACS eliminates the need to file manually, store, retrieve and send sensitive information, films, and medical reports. Instead, medical documentation and images can be securely housed in on-site or off-site servers and safely accessed from anywhere in the world using PACS software, workstations, and mobile devices.

Medical imaging storage technologies such as PACS are increasingly crucial as the volume of digital medical images grows throughout the healthcare industry, and data analytics of those images becomes more prevalent. PACS uses the DICOM protocol to store and transmit images.
