Paper Abstract

In a PACS environment, multimedia information is archived and stored. Although PACS has been successfully providing clinical services to radiologists through diagnostic-quality viewing workstations, the expanse of this information has rarely been readily and easily accessible to radiologists after clinical diagnosis and review. It undermines undoubtedly the power and capability of the PACS system, and also creates significant inconveniences and impacts in the teaching and research activities which are often a very vital part in an academic institution. To accommodate these drawbacks, we, at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), have developed a pilot project to allow PACS imagery and textual data to be easily transferred and accessed by radiologists in their office. The process of retrieving PACS data should require minimum effort from radiologists and should be cost effective. With these objectives in mind, this paper describes the design and mechanism for a low-cost and easy access system to PACS.
