27 June 1988 Digital Image Archiving And Handling - Status And Trends
Author Affiliations +
After enthusiastic visions of totally digital imaging departments projected for the end of this century a more realistic approach is needed. In Europe PAC systems are steadily evolving by stepwise upgrading imaging equipment with PACS building blocks. An extension of the ACR/NEMA standard will be presented connecting multiple imaging devices . In a majority of big hospitals the organisation of the imaging department is supported by a computerbased Radiology Information System RIS. There are a few key projects where these departmental systems are linked together with digital imaging modalities, electronic archive and digital viewing stations via a local area network.
