Abstract
Computer networks for Picture Archiving and Communications. Systems (PACS) have evolved over the last few years. Twisted pairs and coaxial cable networks have been used for image transfer at low data rates. Second generation PACS networks use fiber optic communications at speeds up to 140 Mbps. In this paper, the need for integrated voice, data, and image communications and network rates over 200 Mbps is presented. A high speed fiber optic network for integrated PACS services has been design and simulated in the Computer Engineering Research Laboratory at the University of Arizona. This paper summarizes the characteristics and protocols of this network. The network represents a high performance application for local PACS environments and its implementation is technically feasible now.
