CV Centers Choose ImageGrid to Manage CT Data

Cabrini Medical Center of New York City and University of California, Irvine (UCI) Cardiovascular Imaging Center, have selected the ImageGrid 1000 as their dedicated image management and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) for high-capacity cardiac 64-slice computed tomography (CT) imaging.

Candelis' ImageGrid is a line of fully-integrated, Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) industry-standard PACS appliances that speed digital image access and routing, simplify image management, and provide highly reliable storage and archive capabilities.

Cabrini Medical Center's Cardiovascular Medicine & Integrated Imaging Program relies on a six-terabyte ImageGrid 1000 as its PACS solution for high-volume 64-slice cardiac CT studies. Additionally, an integrated tape library provides long-term archiving and reliable Information Lifecycle Management to streamline image-management workflow.

The Cardiovascular Imaging Center for Education and Research (CVICER) at UCI also adopted the six-terabyte ImageGrid 1000 as its dedicated image management and PACS for 64-slice cardiac CT. Working in conjunction with existing digital imaging workstations, the ImageGrid manages close to one TB of data per month, with expansion units offering the scalability necessary to expand that capacity to more than 100 TB of cost-effective, always-online image archiving.

Today's cardiovascular information systems need to incorporate all facets of the cardiology department, including subspecialties, to allow a complete picture of a patient's record. These data also need to be able to be shared with enterprise data systems, such as the electronic medical record (EMR). This image is from ScImage, illustrating the various aspects that integrate to make up a complete CVIS.
