Paper Abstract

PACS research and development in the past decade mainly emphasized technical issues such as networking, archiving, data communication standards and image display workstation development. In order to fully realize the benefits of these advanced digital technologies in current and future radiology practice, a discipline for development of next generation PACS must be established and practiced. We devised and applied a development process or life cycle that facilitated PACS system definition, development and operation. With the application of the development process, user requirements and expectations of a PACS can be effectively and accurately transformed into system models, and the implementation and the operation of a PACS can be carried out in a systematic way. The development process also provides a framework for repeatable systems and software engineering.
