Paper Abstract

Recent advances in personal computer technology have made these low-cost platforms quite attractive for the implementation of radiological workstations, particularly in those cases where high throughput is not critical (such as clinical review workstations). In light of this observation, the objectives of this on-going project are threefold: (1) to identify the characteristics and performance specifications that are desirable in a radiological review workstation (within the UCSF PACS architecture), (2) to review current personal computer technology in terms of its ability to support such a workstation, and (3) to design and implement a prototype hardware and software architecture. This paper outlines our progress to data and discusses some of our projections for the near future.
