A little late, but I do work for a pacs company. We currently have a free cloud based solution for pacs; You can carry up to 5GB of study data without paying, and
if you want more, you can 'pay as you go'. It would probably save you a ton of time trying to get a local server working properly...

go to
secure http 'brit' dot 'com' forward slash 'cloud' forward slash 'roentgencloud.htm'
There is web viewer built in; also we have the pay for clients (windows or linux) if you want to go that way.

We've had a bit of trouble running powerscribe and dictation clients in VM's. It's not a constant thing, just problematic.

For free servers, definitely check out dcmtk, it's in the ubuntu repositories, if you go that way. There's enough there to build a server, but I really don't think you need
a server of any type. Most clients (good ones anyway), should be able to store as many studies as the drive can hold.

Oh, well, that's for the PACs stuff. Good luck.

I seriously think that you would need to obtain at least $5 million dollars' worth of personal liability insurance, because the moment someone's loved-one dies (as they would have anyway, too bad), in a moment of grief they might lash-out with lawyers. They will sue the physician because, if the radiology film had been read correctly, (maybe) their loved-one wouldn't have died.

Oh, and the reason why it wasn't read correctly was because of your work.

What? You say it was read correctly? That the computer worked exactly as it was supposed to, and even that you can prove it? Maybe so. But, first we're going to compel you to do about $2 million worth of "discovery" and other things that we know you can't afford to do, in order to compel all of you to settle with us and thus help assuage our grief ... or at least, that of the lawyer who paid us a visit that night at the hospital ...

No, I'm perfectly serious.

Early in the thread the OP stated coverage has been acquired. Most people who work with mission critical work will have some form of Bond and Insurance.

Re: Future NAS and Medical / Radiology PACS system

Your concern about security is genuine. I wish you a good luck.
