Facing the introduction of full-scale PACS systems the accent is undoubtedly made on the data transport and management which are mission critical. Not only the appropriate techniques such as the network architecture (certainly broadband based) and communication protocols (ATM) will have an influence on the performance, reliability and maintenance of the system and perhaps to a much larger extent the integrated view on the PACS data management. The later approach in our research team has been called NOSS, Network Object Server System. The concept allows the storage of any kind of object that will emerge in the future, of particular interest are the Multi-Media developments. The object distribution is done according to the intelligence of the NOSS, incorporating the requirements of the applications. The second accent in the project has been made on the distributed multi-vendor environment, focusing the integratability. Standardization in the field of interoperability will offer us to take advantage of services and applications like remote image processing and to offer image distribution and management services. The current state of the project is a pretty good analysis of the related standards and the work of new standard commissions. The results are reflected in a functional model. The feasibility and performance will be tested in a prototype running at the AZ-VUB.
