A means for unlimited storage of DICOM cardiology procedures was unveiled at the ACC meeting by healthcare company CardioNow. The Internet-based cardiology image and data management service permits instant and secure access to any image and its corresponding data. Instead of maintaining a film or digital library on-site, hospitals can store images digitally at an off-site hosting facility. This design relieves healthcare providers of the primary costs and responsibilities associated with image management, while allowing authorized clinicians to view and share procedures via any standard Internet connection. CardioNow is specifically designed to accommodate the large file sizes associated with DICOM cardiology procedures.
