Boston Scientific Adopts Removable REV Disks for Advanced Imaging

June 7, 2007 - Iomega Corp. announced today that Boston Scientific, maker of the iLab Ultrasound Imaging System has chosen the Iomega REV Drive and its 35-gigabyte (GB) removable REV disks for storing and managing intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) files.

A typical IVUS file requires 1 GB of storage, imposing heavy demands on conventional storage devices in terms of manageability and ease of use. Magneto-optical drives and DVD writers take 15 to 20 minutes to write each patient’s procedure. Iomega’s proven REV Backup Drive and removable REV disks reportedly do the same job in two or three minutes, aiming to deliver dependable, high-capacity removable storage.

In addition to meeting Boston Scientific’s requirements for capturing, storing and archiving critical patient files, the Iomega REV Backup Drive increases storage capacity reportedly allowing for more efficient use of the Boston Scientific iLab System. Based on the size of individual patient files, each REV 35 GB disk can hold up to 35 patient records, further simplifying the archival backup process.
