Network Performance Monitoring Solution Gains Images Per Minute Feature

DICOMetrix, an image flow and network performance monitoring solution, now boasts a new Images Per Minute (IPM) feature that allows for user-controlled monitoring on the enterprise version in IPM, in addition to the previously announced Images Per Second (IPS).

The IPM feature is reportedly beneficial for monitoring slower modalities and slower inter-facility connections in a PACS enterprise that are typically around one IPS. Monitoring in IPM makes setting baseline and alert settings much easier and more accurate, according to the company.

DICOMetrix is a resource tool that enables PACS Administrators, directors and IT personnel to actively monitor, historically track system performance, and alert radiology and PACS support staff about system slow-downs and outages.

DICOMetrix is a 3 tiered software package. The first tier is a client that sits at the workstation level (rad station, modality, CD burner, Rimage, film scanners, etc.) and monitors how fast the images are coming into that station. The second tier is the DICOMetrix Server that resides on the DICOM Server and monitors IPs sending into this server as well as outgoing traffic. The Third tier is a new Web-based enterprise solution (WebDES) that monitors all clients and servers in one easy to access location. After base-lining the enterprise, it also allows a user or administrator to set alerts for notification if any levels drop below specified tolerances as well as gather data for quick reporting. The DICOMetrix early warning system reportedly proactively tracks DICOM image flow and network problems before they become patient care problems.
