Paper Abstract

A modern radiology department utilizes multimedia technologies to facilitate its operation. Multimedia technologies include hardware platform, information systems, databases, communication protocols, display technology and system interface and integration. Current existing PACS can not handle this multimedia information because of its closed architectural design. This paper describes the concept of second generation PACS and its design and implementation at the University of California, San Francisco. The second generation PACS concept consists of four major components: folder manager, platter manager, image and data format standardization, and integration of heterogeneous information systems.
