This paper describes the design of a distributed database for a picture archiving and communications system (PACS). This system consists of several relatively cheap workstations and a large optical archive and distributed database modules. The communication between the modules uses the same network as used to connect the system to the clients. Existing, working, and available standards are used wherever possible. This makes the system open and accessible in a multivendor environment such as hospitals. The distributed approach makes the total system flexible, cheaper, faster, and when designed carefully, more reliable.
