RSNA: Vendor Neutral Archiving

One of the buzzwords on the RSNA that many companies are using is VNA (Vendor Neutral Archiving). With vendor neutral archiving, the storage is taken care off in a cloud oriented architecture. Any image can be stored into the VNA secure and consolidated regardless of the vendor of the data producing entity (e.g. A PACS).
Advantages can be found in easy sharing of images between healthcare institutes, but also in the fact that PACS replacement can be achieven easier since all data is available in the VNA.

A whitepaper on VNA is availble from Carestream Health
