Scalable Data Storage Analysis and Solution for Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS)

Ayhan Akbal and Erhan Akbal
Abstract—Information technologies had became means of universal development by rapidly growing in the recent years. And the health sector is the leading one among these sectors. While medical information and laboratory test results –among the data sets generated at health institutions-- occupy a small space as data due to being in text form, digital images occupy a large space in discs due to being pictures. Thus the storage and use of digital images is becoming a significant problem for the institutions. Within the frame of this study, solutions regarding the points to be considered in Data Storage solutions -by using the data sets of Hospital of University of Firat as sample-, how the planning should be made and the optimization of data storage areas had been emphasized.

Index Terms—PACS, data storage, DICOM, network.
