Healthcare's Digital Evolution Strains IT Infrastructure

Healthcare is evolving and medical imaging devices are reaching ever higher levels of precision. Computerized Tomography (CT) scanners, for example, have upgraded from a single row of detectors to 640. Combined with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) 3.0 technology, over 10,000 files are now produced in a single check.

Elsewhere, multi-Disciplinary Treatment (MDT) collaboration, intelligent auxiliary diagnosis, intelligent quality control, and intelligent preoperative planning — all based on medical imaging — are accelerating the standardized clinical application of new medical technologies, as well as helping to transform medical scientific research. As a result, the need to share medical imaging data has exploded.

So Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) now need to work across departments, with patient-centric clinical and multimodal research data integrated to support medical Research and Development (R&D) and hospital services.

In short, such developments clearly present new challenges for hospital Information Technology (IT) infrastructure construction.

High Requirements on Retrieval Performance

The number of imaging files generated in a single check has increased from hundreds to tens of thousands. As a result, retrieval waiting times for traditional infrastructure have increased from seconds to minutes, reducing diagnostic efficiency. Storage devices with better read and write performance are urgently needed to provide more efficient, real-time access to medical imaging files.

Superior Performance

Rapid Growth of Medical Imaging Data

The amount of medical imaging data has increased from the TB level to the PB level, leading to a significant increase in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of storage hardware.

Difficult Data Sharing

From ultrasound and radiology to electrocardiograms, healthcare institutions have a host of different departments and various application systems that often operate independently of each other. This leads to data silos, making data sharing difficult, data migration expensive, and data lifecycle management complex.

Choose Huawei Storage for Medical PACS Imaging

why 1

High Performance

Huawei's OceanStor Pacific storage solution for medical Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACSs) delivers superior performance through intelligent prefetch and hybrid workload technologies, with performance increasing linearly as more nodes are added. The solution can display over 500 image files in under 1s, eliminating semantic loss and performance deterioration, thanks to multi-protocol interoperability. This significantly improves the efficiency of both diagnosis and treatment.
why 2


Using high-density hardware, the solution reduces required equipment room space by up to 62.5%, bringing down Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while advanced PACS image data encoding also slashes Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) .

Easy Sharing

While this future-facing solution can easily expand online capacity, automatic tiering for hot, warm, and cold data helps to ensure availability of mass image data.
