Acuo Technologies Announces Patent Granted for Asset Communication Format Within a Computer Network

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Acuo Technologies, the market leading Vendor Neutral Archive supplier, was granted US patent number 7,640,171 by the USPTO which covers technology implemented in its DICOM Services Grid™ software suite.

The DICOM Services Grid (DSG) software is paramount for organizations that desire and require a Vendor/PACS Neutral Archiving strategy and those who manage images from other "-ologies", such as pathology and cardiology. The DICOM Services Grid system completely eliminates current and future down-stream migration issues and vendor lock-in allowing PACS to plug and unplug to meet business needs. The DSG is the only off-the-shelf, truly open standards-based solution which creates a "Google-like" environment to aggregate, federate, and virtualize medical imaging assets and related content including non-DICOM data objects. The DSG is built upon a service orchestration architecture that provides full routing, querying and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) (including comprehensive retention/purge capabilities), an open database schema, and multiple replication models leveraging next generation storage platforms. The DSG is the key strategy offered by many infrastructure providers to support their storage and archive offerings "Powered by Acuo" within the medical imaging marketplace.

According to Shannon Werb, Chief Technology Officer of Acuo Technologies, "This patent, filed in July 2001 for our meta-data routing technology, covers point to multi point routing both to different storage locations and to other DICOM compliant PACS systems. It also covers Acuo's journalized storage system wherein changes made to metadata, after initial storage, are tracked so that a complete history of the modifications is kept with the images. The core DSG software suite leverages this technology to enable robust Clinical ILM via the routing and storage of medical imaging data based upon the context of the data at acquisition or throughout the data's lifecycle. We look forward to continuing our thought leadership and engineering excellence to bring the most comprehensive and unique innovations in the medical imaging middleware market."
