This useful tool is the result of a research project, which we had officially
presented at the RSNA 2010. We collected data of multiple institutions both small centers and big
universities around the world and calculated average numbers in order to predict the amount of storage
needed for a PACS.
The entire calculation is based on the following values:
- Type of imaging center
- Geographical region
- Level of reliability
- Archive period in years
- Working days per year
- Plus values regarding the set of modalities you plan to use (number
of images per study and number of studies per day)
Only a few of the above mentioned information is mandatory. Fields that are left blank will be filled
with values from our statistical database. So even if you do not have precise insight into your
customers network, we can create a detailed summary of your future PACS project.
