Paper Abstract

The challenge in providing picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in the modern managed care environment is to justify its cost, while still providing the required services. The only solution which achieves the economic goal is the elimination of film and its associated costs in favor of PACS. Recognizing that some hardcopy will always be desired, an acceptable inexpensive paper print alternative is required. Our initial networked paper printed solution has replaced all film use in nuclear medicine while still providing economical color and monochrome paper output when required. Extensions of this print architecture for ultrasound, CT and MR are planned for the near future.
