DICOM Capacitor is a store and forward DICOM gateway for mobile and unreliable networks.

Capacitor is a DICOM Gateway router that receives studies from any DICOM modality, stores them temporarily, and then, when possible, delivers them to one or more PACSs.

When to use Capacitor​

When to us

Mobile units, where connectivity to your network is available only one in a while, or at the end of the day.

Remote sites, where bandwidth is insufficient and large transfers have to be scheduled.

Unreliable networks, where frequent network drops cause aborted transmissions.

Poor vendor implementations.
Sometimes hung transfers hang applications, and that can have a big impact on your schedule.

How does it work?

Capacitor sits between your device and the PACS, this can be either on the same machine, or a locally-placed server.

From the perspective of your modality, storage to Capacitor is the same as storage to PACS, creating an uninterrupted workflow.

What is the impact on staff?
