In the fall of 2000, ScImage launched PicomOnline, our online PACS data center. PicomOnline is engineered using the same software as our acclaimed PicomEnterprise PACS platform. Today, PicomOnline is one of the largest PACS installations in ordinary clinical use.
For those that don't have the resources to manage their own PACS, ScImage has a solution: Cloud PACS.
