aycan store (PACS)

Volume Ready On-Site or In the Cloud

aycan store is a scalable, high performance DICOM archiving and distribution system that can be accessed on-site or optionally through our cloud solution powered by Oracle. From simple to complex workflows in imaging centers, hospitals, and Teleradiology service companies, aycan store can improve the workflow in any environment.

 aycan store can be accessed on-site or optionally through our cloud solution powered by Oracle.


aycan’s consulting team meets with you to develop a customized solution to fit into your current or future IT/PACS and RIS environment and workflow.

aycan store is at home in any environment. It seamlessly integrates with RIS and other patient management systems. The Import Module assures reliable legacy data migration and its open architecture makes it compatible with most 3rd party vendors. aycan store supports most radiology compatibility standards, so it can seamlessly integrate into your current environment and with all your DICOM nodes. Once integrated, you’ll stay in control of your data as it is all stored in a vendor neutral DICOM format.

aycan store‘s unique features allow you to improve productivity without compromising security. Configuring aycan store‘s auto-routing feature will streamline your workflow by automatically transferring your DICOM data to any desired location. And, with industry-standard VPN encryption methods, aycan store keeps your data traffic secure at all times. aycan also offers optional off-site data storage, so you can safely backup your data for disaster recovery and other applications.

aycan will thoroughly plan and prepare for the install before arriving on-site, so you are ensured a smooth and timely installation.

aycan store‘s RAID system for it’s on-site solution is engineered for performance and scalability, so no matter how quickly your data grows, aycan store can grow with you and provide the performance you need. With aycan store, there is no need to migrate your data when you are ready to expand. And with native JPEG-lossless compression, you get end-to-end speed, without the wait.

The aycan store Cloud solution offers all the same features and benefits as the on-site version, while eliminating the typical up-front investment costs of an onsite hardware solution. Key features of an aycan store Cloud solution include:

  • Store DICOM data in Oracle Cloud
  • Backup/Restore, Archive/Retrieve, and Disaster Recovery (DR)
  • Seamless, secure sharing of complete studies
  • Automated distribution of study imagery, reports, and key images to referring physicians
  • Visualization of reports and key images using aycan universal thin-client viewer, a zero foot-print interface for desktop or mobile

Standard Features and Options to Streamline Your Workflow

The modular aycan store (PACS) solution is ready for your current and future needs. In addition to basic DICOM archiving, various options can be added at any time to help you streamline your workflow.

With aycan store’s versatile auto-routing engine (included), incoming study images can automatically be forwarded to destinations on your network. It’s configurable based on the content of DICOM tags, down to the image level. Routing rules can even be scheduled for specific times of the day or even days of the week for custom overnight or specialty reading.

Make optimal use of your hardware by segmenting your server using virtual archives (option).  This allows you to keep data from different groups separate on one server.

Reduce time and confusion by managing which radiologist diagnoses what. Using Virtual Archives you can assign cases to specific radiologists.  Their Q/R window will show only what they need to read.

When a new study arrives, with Pre-Fetching (option) the PACS can search its archive of studies and automatically send prior studies along with the newly arrived study.

aycan store offers a Query/Retrieve Filter (option) that can provide a way to allow DICOM Query/Retrieve capability for specific users, without giving full access to your archive. This is ideal for creating departmental or site views of the archive. It’s also been used as a way to limit the view for 3rd party radiologists providing vacation coverage.

Don’t spend time looking for misspelled patient names within the PACS system. Keep your data consistent and current within the RIS and PACS system by IHE scenario using aycan store’s Patient Information Reconciliation (PIR) function (option). Necessary changes to patient data within the RIS are automatically taken over by the PACS system.

Do you still have DICOM data on old optical, MO, or other legacy magnetic media? Consider migrating that data to a PACS server before they become unreadable using aycan Data Migration Services (option).

Use your storage space and network bandwidth efficiently by storing and transferring your DICOM data with lossless compression (option). Should one of the devices you use not be able to handle compressed data, aycan store will automatically switch to an ‘uncompressed” mode and transfer the data without compression. With lossless compression you will be able to archive double the amount of image data without having to upgrade your hardware.

In the case of erroneous patient data such as a typo, the Metadata Editor (option) allows you to correct the error in the PACS system.  Changes can then easily be sent to update diagnostic workstations.

Does your RIS or HIS not support DICOM Modality Worklist? aycan store‘s Modality Worklist Module (option) can fill the gap to eliminate patient detail typos. Your RIS, HIS, or even patient scheduling system can feed data direct to aycan store, which will provide your modalities with auto-populated patient demographics.

Need to have certain DICOM tag values copied to other tags? Need to prefix a site code for specific sending sites? Want CD imports to have a special identifier? aycan store can automatically modify DICOM metadata on arrival based on a rule-set using the Automatic DICOM Tag Modification (option).

Do you need to guarantee that your data has not changed?  aycan store offers certified WORM (write once, read many) storage (option).

Standard with aycan store, aycan offers aycan web, a non-diagnostic web tool for easy distribution of medical images to referring physicians and colleague. Optionally, choose either aycan workstation or aycan universal thin client viewer, both FDA 510(k) cleared.

RIS/HIS Integration

When a Radiology Information Systems (RIS)/Hospital Information System (HIS) is acquired, or standards and volume needs change, radiology departments are often forced to go with a new PACS as well — with aycan store, you don’t have to.  Vendor neutral aycan store can integrate with just about any current RIS or HIS system. And, as aycan store is easily upgradeable, it can meet current and future standards (such as DICOM) and volume needs.
