Abstract
The growing digital nature of radiology images led to a recognition that compatibility of communication between imaging, display and data storage devices of different modalities and different manufacturers is necessary. The ACR-NEMA Digital Imaging and Communications Standard Committee was formed to develop a communications standard for radiological images. This standard includes the overall structure of a communication message and the protocols for bi-directional communication using end-to-end connections. The evolution and rationale of the ACR-NEMA Digital Imaging and Communication Standard are described. An overview is provided and sane practical implementation considerations are discussed. PACS will became reality only if the medical community accepts and implements the ACR-NEMA Standard.
