Abstract
A diagnostic radiology department can be viewed as an information processor. The inputs to this processor are orders for studies, clinical histories, and requests for consultation. These inputs are used in conjunction with the database of prior studies to produce the required outputs -- images and diagnostic reports. Automating information transport in this environment will reduce costs and speed up the flow of information, to the benefit of the hospital, radiologists, attending physicians, and patients. This paper describes a "model" radiology department in terms of its internal and external communications. Using this model we present requirements for a system to manage radiological image and text data - a Radiology Operations System.
