History: Our experience with Medical Image Management Systems (MIMS, also called PACS) began in 1982 with the creation of a digital subtraction angiography (DSA) unit. This DSA system was built utilizing a DeAnza image array processor with boards fabricated by our staff to interface with a Siemens angiography room. Because of the need to transmit and eventually store very large image files on a remote computer, we designed and fabricated a point-to-point fiber-optic link [82-ARENA. This device was later marketed by Canoga Systems and was an important contribution to the design of commercial fiber-optic networks. Recognizing the importance of a versatile Radiology Information System (RIS) and its critical inter-relationship to a MIMS, some very early work on RIS design was carried out [79-ARENA, [79.B-AREN ], [84-AREN ].
