Choosing the Right Architecture

Thin clientThick Client
Very low requirements for the clients.High requirements for the clients.
Remote visualization server necessary.No Remote visualization server.
Network must provide good connection at all times between all components.Network connection required only for patient download and report sending.
Reviews can be performed outside of the hospital or clinic only if a good network connection is available.Reviews can be performed outside of the hospital or clinic regardless of network connection.
Reviews must be performed online i.e. with all components connected.Review can be performed offline if data has been previously downloaded from the image processing server.
