Abstract
Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) have so far been studied primarily as a tool to address the problems of electronic radiology. Certainly the trends toward digital imaging within radiology provide strong ecomomic and medical incentives for the development of medical picture networks, but we believe that the applications for picture networks extend far beyond the field of radiology. Architects, engineers, biologists - practicioners of virtually every academic and commercial pursuit - deal with picture information every day, and increasingly these pictures are finding their way into digital form. We believe that industries and universities of the future will utilize sophisticated workstations serving a variety of scientific and commercial needs, and that these workstations will be linked by wideband networks capable of supporting not only text but high-resolution picture transmission as well.
