Abstract
The accurate prediction of image throughput and delay is a critical issue in planning for and acquisition of any successful picture archiving and communication system (PACS). Bottlenecks or design flaws can render an expensive PACS implementation useless. This manuscript presents methods for predicting and measuring the end-to-end mean delay time (image generation to image display) of a PACS design with successively greater level of resolving power: (1) mean value analysis, (2) Jackson queuing models and (3) computer simulation using the block oriented network simulator (BONeS).
