Case Study#216 University Radiology Lacey Diagnostics


Medical Imaging Center


Forked River, NJ

Legacy PACS


Target PACS

Semperdata Atrium Archive


147,400 studies

The acquisition of Lacey Imaging (Forked River, NJ) prompted a Laitek migration of all data from a GE IW PACS to UR’s SDA archive, providing a blueprint for storage configuration going forward.

Key Challenges:

  • Decommissioning the GE IW PACS and consolidating a 147,437 net inventory of studies to the SDA archive.
  • Evaluating original studies for proprietary data elements for potential migration
  • Maintaining ongoing PACS functionality throughout the migration on an extremely unstable legacy system with limited vendor support

In addition to the standard comprehensive Migratek migration services, the project also included partitioning a unique Lacey Center data space in the SDA. The project was accomplished in four months with a 99.94% verified migration success rate.

Customer Comment:
“Laitek really takes the headache of migration out of the whole merger structure.”-Judy Gronlund-Jacob, Manager PACS and Teleradiology, University Radiology
