Archiving of medical images in ORCA Archive
Cloud solutions have been tried and tested worldwide. This technology provides access to state-of-the-art software services on a pay-per-use basis, while simultaneously reducing the need for expensive computing and communications infrastructure in the office. An ever growing number of companies has chosen to rely on services and memory hosted remotely in the “cloud”.
A daily challenge in human medicine is processing the large volume of images generated by modern equipment. Medical diagnostics greatly benefits from advances in high-quality imaging techniques and at the same time is faced with ever-growing data volumes.
ORCA (OR Technology Cloud Archiving) is a software solution designed to make everyday work in private practices and hospital easier, cheaper and more efficient. ORCA Archives medical images and documents on its remote access servers using highest security standards. The service is scalable, allowing adjustments in storage space as demand grows.
ORCA Archive transfers and stores image files from direct sources (e.g. digital X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound machines) as well as from Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) in a cloud-based archive. ORCA Archive can also be used as a backup solution. Wherever the internet is accessible, images archived in the cloud can be viewed at maximal resolution and quality (DICOM) via the integrated, browser-based ORCA View program and our analysis software dicomPACS®. If a different PACS is in use, images from ORCA can be downloaded to the desktop for local viewing.
