Abstract
The technology for teleradiology and Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) is advancing at a rapid rate. Third generation PACS networks which transfer digital images at over 100 Mega-bits per second are to be available in the near future. Imaging equipment and viewing workstations technology currently provide excellent quality images for diagnosis and analysis at several modalities. In the meantime the technology for network and telecommunications systems which transfer the images is also advancing rapidly. The opportunity to merge these technologies into a Global FAGS environment currently exists. This paper investigates the concepts of a Global PACS and presents the requirements for such systems. The concepts are described using user scenarios for the usage of a Global PACS. The Global PACS requirements are presented in operational functional and performance formats. The Global PACS scenarios describe image transfer cross-country or from isolated geographical areas. Other scenarios describe remote diagnosis and consultation by a group of radiologists and physicians. 1. 0
