Paper Abstract

An Integrated Services Data Network test configuration, developed in collaboration with SBC Technology Resources Inc., has been utilized to gain experience with both hardware and software interface isssues relevant to wide-area extensions of PACS. Example workstations capable of inquiry and display of radiological information have been interfaced to the ISDN trial network and tested. A DEGnet router was used to interface our Ethernet-based PACS to an ISDN network. Average throughput rates of approximately 60Kb/s for the lB (64Kb/s) channel and 120Kb/s for the 2B (l28Kb/s) channel were measured. Results were obtained for both embedded and external ISDN terminal adapters.
