Paper Abstract

Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) represent an enormously expensive technological innovation which has the potential to alter the way in which radiology is practiced. In a 1985 survey of radiologists and radiology administrators, over a quarter of those individu1s expected to have some component of an operational PACS system by 1986. The survey respondants perceived advantages including fast access to files, multiple user simultaneous access to films, and possibly secondary benefits in accuracy in diagnosis and improved communications. Progress in widespread PACS implementation has considerably lagged the rate anticipated in the 1985 study. In order to evaluate the current expectations of PACS and contrast them to the earlier enthusiasm we have undertaken this study of the current perceptions of PACS among both radiologists and clinicians.
