VNA for the CIO
ITN - Imaging Technology News
November 06, 2014

A VNA platform, when correctly implemented with the right team, will provide years of service and scalability to match the demands of an expanding imaging infrastructure. Maintaining a high-level view of core capabilities expected from a VNA prevents wading around in a minutia of feature functionality.
