Unhappily, significant numbers of media errors are present in many tape-based and even optical-based PACS archives, and it is not rare that errors exist in both primary and backup copies. Thus, it is likely that there will be some data loss in migration projects. Usually, such losses are concentrated among the oldest data, and are deemed negligibly small and well within standards of practice for data retention.

However, in certain cases, institutions may elect to take further measures to recover lost data. Data recovery projects usually involve the services of an outside contractor to recover data from damaged media, plus Migratek services to interpret sometimes-partial data sets and send reconstructed studies to the new PACS. Laitek will assist in such efforts on a time-and-materials basis.
