New Processors Help PACS Deliver Faster Server Performance

April 7, 2011 – Testing on the new Intel Xeon processor E7 product family indicates that they can help deliver responsive access to a larger number of users per server on PACS systems. Carestream Health was one of the first healthcare providers to test the processors on their PACS and SuperPACS Architecture.

These new processors can also help healthcare providers reduce operating expenses by minimizing the number of servers required for data-intensive PACS applications.

“Establishing close working relationships with IT leaders like Intel allow our engineers to incorporate the latest technological advances into our healthcare IT platforms,” said Diana L. Nole, president, Digital Medical Solutions, Carestream Health. “The new Intel Xeon processor E7 product family will help address the growing demand for rapid image access by enterprise-wide systems. At the same time, these highly efficient processors can help healthcare providers contain costs of growth by reducing the number of servers required to support their user base.”

Carestream PACS and SuperPACS Architecture are scalable systems designed to deliver responsive, concurrent access to medical imaging exams and reports by dozens or even hundreds of clinicians at on-site and remote locations.

While the new processor family was being developed, Carestream Health and Intel engineers conducted tests that simulated a large number of users performing routine radiologic tasks on the systems. These tests indicated an increase of 1.28 more frames per second delivered by the Intel Xeon processor E7 product family as compared to Intel Xeon 7500 series processor.

Engineers are also working with advanced task sharing methods along with new Intel software and memory subsystems to further enhance the performance of its PACS and SuperPACS Architecture.
