25 May 1989 A CT/MR/US Picture Archiving and Communication System
Author Affiliations +
A picture archiving and communication system (PACS) module for CT, MR, and US images is being developed in our department. The PACS module is composed of three subsystems: (1) image acquisition, (2) data management and (3) image display. A digital communication network links these subsystems into a functional unit. The system hardware configuration is described. Daily and yearly totals for the amount of CT, MR, and US images generated in our department are provided. The software modules for the system operation are presented. We also report on our previous experience with a MR/US PACS module for a single radiology section.
