Abstract
Estimates have been made for the amount of digital storage capacity necessary and the data creation rates for the nuclear medicine portion of an all digital radiology department. After installation, the number of computer studies performed, image files created and bytes archived for each month increased with time. There was a high correspondence between the number of computer studies performed and (1) the number of new image files created (r=0.95) and (2) the total number of pytes archived (r=0.82). The average number of bytes created per work-day was 5.6 x 106 Experience with our nuclear medicine system seems to indicate that when planning a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) installation (1) the amount of necessary online storage may increase and continue to increase after installation and (2) our estimate of nuclear medicine digital images creation rates agree with previous estimates l.
