Data Center Physical Infrastructure for Medical Imaging and Diagnostic Equipment

The Different Types of UPS Systems

White Paper 86 Revision 1

White Paper 1 by Victor Avelar

>Executive summary

Medical imaging and diagnostic equipment (MIDE) is increasingly being networked to Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS), Radiology Informa- tion Systems (RIS), Hospital Information Systems (HIS), and getting connected to the hospital intranet as well as the Internet. Failing to implement the necessary data center physical infrastructure (DCPI) can result in unexpected downtime, and safety and compliance issues, which translates into lost revenue and exposure to expensive litigations, negatively affecting the bottom line. This paper explains how to plan for DCPI when deploying medical imaging and diagnostic equipment, with emphasis on power and cooling.
