Paper Abstract

Seven months experiences of a filmless PACS (named HU-PACS) which covers Radiology, Orthopedic, Internal medicine and General Surgery departments are reported. The PACS has only 20 Image terminals but handles more than 50% of images produced which is about 1000 images per working day. Physicians of the departments have many criticisms and opinions on the PACS but generally speaking it is well accepted and inspiring the physicians to improve the PACS in its image quality and other functions instead of being discarded. Preliminary clinical assessment are performed and reported also.
