Abstract
A prototype archiving system manufactured by the 3M Corporation has been in place at the University of North Carolina for approximately 12 months. The system was installed as a result of a collaboration between 3M and UNC, with 3M seeking testing of their system, and UNC realizing the need for an archiving system as an essential part of their PACS test-bed facilities. System hardware includes appropriate network and disk interface devices as well as media for both short and long term storage of images and their associated information. The system software includes those procedures necessary to communicate with the network interface elements(NIEs) as well as those procedures necessary to interpret the ACR-NEMA header blocks and to store the images. A subset of the total ACR-NEMA header is parsed and stored in a relational database system. The entire header is stored on disk with the completed study. Interactive programs have been developed that allow radiologists to easily retrieve information about the archived images and to send the full images to a viewing console. Initial experience with the system has consisted primarily of hardware and software debugging. Although the system is ACR-NEMA compatable, further objective and subjective assessments of system performance is awaiting the connection of compatable consoles and acquisition devices to the network.
