Novel telemedicine and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) are enabling research for unique data storage and retrieval mechanisms. This paper presents an improved proposal that considers the HDF5 paradigm as a high performance environment for the storage and retrieval of medical images via PACS. Specifically, the previous proposal has demonstrated that new approaches using alternative ways of storing and retrieving medical data are necessary for improving system performance. Experimental results comparing the approach with a conventional database management system shows a successful improvement of the proposal.
