NEW YORK, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Digitized Medical Image Archiving Outlook to 2015

Medical imaging technology is moving from film-based physician analysis to digitized on-screen diagnosis. This report forecasts the storage space requirements for diagnostic images generated by MRI, CT, ultrasound, C-arms, and nuclear medicine. Over the next decade, as the output from imaging modalities increases in resolution quality, there will be a greater requirement storage space for digital images. This report analyzes the requirement of digital storage space for archived medical images up to 2015 for the following countries: the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, Benelux, and Japan.

Scope of this research

• Identify the digital storage space requirements for medical images in prominent markets such as the US, Europe, and Japan.

• Understand the various architectures developed to archive and manage digital medical images.

• Analyze the factors that will drive growth for digital medium storage.

• Assess the ways in which PACS installation is evolving continuously to meet the challenges posed by hospital productivity and physician availability.

• Understand the implications of growth in storage requirements and steps to be taken in response.

Research and analysis highlights

Digital Imaging in Communication and Medicine (DICOM) is an image-specific standard that converts acquired images from the medical image modality into a format that can be interpreted by the PACS module. Health Level 7 (HL7) governs data transfer from all Information Technology (IT)-enabled ancillary systems, including PACS.

The faster return on investment has been the unique selling proposition for PACS modules over the past five to seven years. With more and more physicians opting to choose digital image screening over film-based ones, the requirement for digital storage space is increasing exponentially.

For over 75% of the diagnostic procedures executed, the digital images are accessed frequently for the first six to eight months, following which the images remain dormant in the storage modules. The information lifecycle management algorithm allocates storage space and accelerates image retrieval according to the frequency of access.

Key reasons to purchase this research

• How much digital storage space is required for storing medical images in the US, Europe, and Japan?

• What is the growth rate of digital storage space requirements in various countries?

• In what ways are PACS and MIAS mutually inclusive systems?

• What type of networks exist to ensure smooth digital information flow in hospitals?

• How should hospital administrators and storage vendors respond to the forecasted storage requirements?
