Need help with image-processing build

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So the hospital my dad works at needs a new computer. It needs to be quick with image processing, specifically with the PACS program. Doctors are complaining that the current computers are slow and so they need a new one. Budget is <$5000. Really not sure what this kind of specs this kind of a build requires but image processing is it's main goal so it needs a fast cpu, video card(s) and probably an SSD.

Would prefer to buy the components locally at www.memoryexpress.ca, or online at www.ncix.com canada.

Thanks

go and talk to HP, Dell, IBM.

Sounds like this is too important to do without a full same business day warranty on it.

i second this, seems like they need a business solution. a home made computer would perform better for the price but their is no way you would be able to provide warranty and customer care for them as fast as hp dell or ibm

I know quite a bit about image processing, but nothing about the PACS system. This question probably won't get useful responses here, since we're just a consumer-level and mostly gaming hardware site.

You would have to reveal much more information about this system. Which computers are too slow: the computers that write the data of different image modalities to the archive or those that read from the archive for viewing? How can you be certain that the speed of the hardware in the computer is the bottleneck? Is it possible that the programming of the PACS system is causing the speed problem? Who implemented the system in this hospital and why are they not being consulted to fix the issue?

I would like to help and I'm sure other here would also, but there are just too many unknowns to give you a good response.

My dad implements the system so I'm fairly certain it's not the bottleneck. Most images are held locally on the system but some that are on the server take even more time to load. A brand name would definately be preferable for warranty purposes.

I'll have to get the specs of the current computer to make sure the next one is an upgrade. Thanks for all the responses.

You may need more than the specs of the current "computer". Your original post mentioned that doctors are complaining that the current computers (plural) are slow. So it may be more than a simple single-computer swap-out. You need to determine the entire infrastructure and see if there's a bottleneck somewhere there...

At least now we know why we overpay for crappy health care. Quick, someone tell Obama about this kid.

This also sounds as if either the server or the network needs an upgrade. Medical images tend to be huge, since (as far as I am aware) any kind of compression (even lossless) is expressly forbidden.

Depending on how old the system is, you might even be running 10Mb Ethernet in places - not likely, but certainly possible. 100Mb Ethernet - a more likely scenario - should be plenty fast enough.

If I was in your position, the first thing I'd do is look at the server and then the network; in my book the all images should be stored on the server anyway.

After that, look at the client machines and see if they lack the resources needed to process the images.

Obviously, I'm just generalising here, but if you can come back to us with the specs of your current server, network and client machines, we can most likely help you decide where to spend the money to get the best return on your investment.
