QNAP Releases MediQPACS to Help Small and Medium Healthcare Providers

QNAP Systems, Inc. (QNAP ) today released MediQPACS, an application that turns a QNAP NAS into a private PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) server to help users securely back up DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) files from hospital modalities and allows for quick viewing and complete management of medical images. MediQPACS provides healthcare facilities with a budget-friendly alternative for their PACS server in HIS (hospital network systems) with 24/7 availability, central management, and dependable storage of all DICOM files.

"DICOM files containing patient data are generally large-sized, leading to potential storage challenges in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities. With the MediQPACS app for QNAP NAS, these massive DICOM files from connected medical modalities and AET can be securely and centrally stored. QNAP NAS also features various methods for expanding capacity to fit future data storage requirements," said Anay Badavne, Product Manager of QNAP.
Users can easily retrieve and view the DICOM files (including images, tags and patient information) on MediQPACS using the built-in viewer via network connection, providing greater convenience for medical diagnosis workflows. MediQPACS also allows for quickly viewing recently-added studies of patients, greatly saving doctors' time on importing and searching for patients and their studies. By dragging and dropping different DICOM images, doctors can view multiple images at once and can add a layer over the images for further diagnosis using tools such as windowing, leveling, livewire, flood fill contour and more.

NAS system requirements:
  • MediQPACS is a containerized application. Container Station 1.8.3031 (or later) is required to use MediQPACS.
  • QTS 4.3.4 (or later).
  • x86 (Intel/AMD) processor with at least 2 GB RAM (4GB RAM is recommended for the smoothest usage experience). Note: ARM-based NAS will be supported in future versions.
Availability
MediQPACS is available for download from the QTS App Center. MediQPACS currently only supports the English language.

I wonder what "various methods" can this offer besides growing a RAID array the traditional way.

Could be referring to products like their new TR-004 independant raid expansion unit versus traditional dependant raid expansion units.

Not sure what yo define as "real" I dont use any of that crap on the SAN though. We use it for storage only, over 10g fiber (iscsi)

I do like how they are trying new things, its a shame medical never seems to have money for IT in general let alone random 4 bay NASs chilling next to imaging machines.
