Paper Abstract

The University Hospital Utrecht (UHU) has been the site for clinical evaluation of a prototype Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), as a part of the Dutch PACS project run by BAZIS, Phffips Medical Systems and the UHU in the period 19864989 k The 800 bed UHU moved in July 1989 to a new campus site facifity (Figure 1.). This offered the opportunity to design the new radiology department to be prepared for a future large scale PACS. The set-up includes an ergonomically designed digital reading room, a centrally located computer room, cooling and cabling, a video network covering the total department and facilities for teleradiology. Radiology, Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine are organized in one department.
