Abstract
Although medical applications are important designers of electronic systems for medicine are compelled by economic considerations to use components and devices developed for other applications. Nowhere is this more obvious than in teleradiology where the most widely used systems are those that make use of standard components. Teleradiology involves all the functions of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) -- image capture compression transmission storage manipulations display and printing -- and in that sense is an economically viable prototype of a FAG system. Looking to the future there are many developments that can enhance the capabilities of teleradiology and PAC systems for reasonable cost. A review of recently developed products and products still in development including those intended for applications outside of medicine indicates the directions in which teleradiology and other image management systems will grow. 1.
