16 September 1985 PACS - What About Software
Author Affiliations +
PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications) has become quite a topic lately, with many descriptions of the functionality needed and the cost of the hardware required to implement such a system. The software tasks involved are of enormous importance, and can be designed to provide flexibility and functionality that will reduce overhead costs and provide a variety of interactions for users, suited to their particular task or modality. This paper will attempt to define the software tools and structure needed to give the PACS console a wide variety of applications that can be tailored for a specific site or user. In addition, the modularity of the software goes along with modularity in the hardware to keep the cost down for different types of tasks.
