The appliance lists for $4000 configured with a RAID 5 archive and 1TB memory. The DICOM viewer can be added for $1000.

The company plans to sell iMed-Stor directly to providers as well as OEMs, positioning iMed-Stor 300 to manufacturers as available for bundling as part of an integrated value-added solution in the OEM's modality portfolio.

The iMed-Stor provides HIPAA-compliant archiving and advanced features supporting teleradiology. If requirements expand beyond the capabilities of iMed-Stor, purchasers can upgrade to Candelis' ImageGrid PACS/RIS Appliance, which supports multiple modalities or advanced workflow operations.
