Business Case for CAS in Medical Imaging

CAS -- How can a business case be made for Content-addressed Storage (CAS) for medical imaging (PACS) installations? I have read lot of material from most of CAS vendors. I am still not sure what CAS delivers beyond normal DAS/NAS based storage architecture for medical imaging clients.

I have been also looking into data transfer to a remote site. The site has been generating at least 10GB of new data every day. The challenge is overcoming the slow internet connection (DSL/T1) to manage daily transfer of at least 10GB of new data as well as using the same connection to request data from remote site in real-time which could be as much as 2GB.
