Abstract

See full text

An image management system connects to a health care enterprise intranet and receives images from medical imaging devices located throughout the enterprise. The image management system also receives images, patient information and administrative information from PAC, RIS and HIS systems. The images are automatically archived in a number of storage devices having different cost and performance characteristics in accordance with a set of stored health care enterprise rules.
