Paper Abstract

A clinical picture archiving and communication system (PACS) requires immediate access to both patients' previous and current images as well as the corresponding radiology reports. We have developed a prefetch mechanism for the PACS system in the UCSF Department of Radiology that automatically retrieves historical images and reports for reviewing at remote display stations.
