Author Affiliations +
Increasingly sophisticated diagnostic imaging systems are being acquired by hospitals. The purpose of this paper is to identify the sources and types of clinical images in an academic, tertiary, acute-care, general hospital servicing a 600 to 700 bed population. An estimate is provided of the digital image information data that is being generated by these hospitals. The problems of digital archiving and area networks for successfully managing this large amount of image information will be difficult to achieve.
