When planning a PACS, many PACS users or administrators are unaware of which storage capacity is actually required to handle their respective amount of image data. Consequently, there is a huge number of PACS worldwide, which are either too big (sometimes even offering five times the amount of storage needed) or too small and slow.

IMAGE Information Systems therefore developed the PACS Sizing Calculator, which helps you determine the appropriate size of your Picture Archiving and Communication System in just a matter of seconds. This web application is easily accessible and enables users to calculate their individual PACS storage requirements. After answering the questionnaire, the PACS Sizing Calculator outputs relevant information about how much storage capacity is required (considering short or long-term archiving), how many radiologists are needed as well as which network bandwidth and hardware is recommended. 

This useful tool is the result of a research project, which we officially presented at the RSNA 2010. We collected data of multiple institutions both small centers and big universities around the world and calculated average numbers in order to predict the amount of storage needed for a PACS.
