The University of Maryland Medical Center has selected Wam!Net’s data storage service to store and archive its medical images. The hospital averages 600 digital radiology exams per day, resulting in several gigabytes of data. The medical center previously archived images on removable disks that were manually filed and reinstated online for retrieval by radiology personnel. Wam!Net provides offsite long-term storage that can be accessed through standard PACS workstations.
