IT heavyweights IBM and Siemens have agreed to a joint venture to provide medical imaging management systems.

The alliance is designed to address the storage concerns related to the growing volume of digital medical images being created.

It will link Siemens' radiology information system and picture archiving and communication system with IBM's eServer and Total Storage technology.

The companies will jointly market the products, and Siemens will offer IBM as its platform of choice, while IBM will offer support and consulting to the alliance's customers.

The companies said two facilities - University Hospital Brno in the Czech Republic and St Michael's Hospital in Canada - are already working with them.
