Paper Abstract

In this paper, the PACS network data rate requirement in a radiology department is discussed. The network data transmission rate under real data traffic in a medium-size hospital is evaluated using a simulation study. The network is assumed to be a circuit switching network. A preloading system, in which each workstation has local storage to store the next procedure, is assumed, and the network transmission rate which satisfies the response time of this system is obtained.
